QPR manager Harry Redknapp hailed Republic of Ireland international Richard Dunne after the centre back inspired his side to a 1-0 victory at Yeovil Town.

Rangers maintained their unbeaten start to the Sky Bet Championship season after a Charlie Austin penalty 15 minutes from time separated the sides.

The QPR boss admitted his side were fortunate to get the three points at Huish Park - but reserved praise for Dunne who helped the league leaders notch a sixth successive clean sheet.

Redknapp said: "It was a tough three points and I thought Yeovil were unlucky to lose the game. They played well and put us under pressure.

"We defended well again and dealt with a lot of set plays late on. Richard Dunne was immense, and so was Rob Green.

"When I brought Richard into the club this summer I slept a lot easier because I knew we were signing a top player, a captain of his country and a Premier League player. If he stays fit, we have got a great centre half."
