Last-gasp hero Jamie Mackie was still brimming from ear to ear this morning after his late, late heroics against Derby County on Saturday.

Mackie bagged the R's all-important 95th minute equaliser at Pride Park, after Patrick Agyemang had reduced arrears in the second minute of second half stoppage-time.

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, the 24 year-old expressed his delight, commenting: "It's one of the best comebacks I've ever been involved in and a lot of the lads were saying similar things after.

"It was just incredible. We looked down and out, dead and buried at 2-0 down, but we showed the belief that we have as a group of players.

"The celebrations were unreal at the end."

With Rangers trailing 2-0 heading into added time, Agyemang gave the Hoops hope with a fine solo goal, before the former Plymouth Argyle front-man capped a stunning comeback with virtually the last kick of the game.

"I had to hold off a couple of defenders to create the space, but once I was in the box it was all about staying calm and composed," he said.

"It all happened so quickly, and thankfully I managed to drill it beyond (Stephen) Bywater's outstretched arm."

If Mackie was coolness personified inside the box, he was anything but afterwards, as he peeled off his shirt and raced towards the R's faithful.

"I lost it!" he admitted, "I was so emotional.

"We know we didn't play at all well, but to show such courage and resilience to get a positive result tells you all you need to know about this group of players.

"There's an unbelievable spirit in the camp and that showed with the celebrations at full-time.

"It felt like a victory coming so late in the day."

The R's late show preserved their position at the summit of the table and Mackie added: "To be sitting at the top of the table going into the break is a massive boost for the lads.

"If we'd have lost at the weekend with a two week break looming it would have been tough, but we got a draw and we're still top of the table with an unbeaten record.

"That's a huge fillip for the lads and changes the complexity of the whole break." QPR
