HARRY Redknapp praised Kieron Dyer after his late equaliser kept QPR in the FA Cup.
The 34-year-old – playing his first 90 minutes since November – popped up with a last-gasp goal to cancel out Shane Long's opener and earn Rangers a reply.
Redknapp said: “I’m pleased for Kieron. It was important for him to get 90 minutes under his belt.
“He’s had a lot of injuries and it was great to see him back on the scoresheet today.
“It was important we didn’t get beat because losing is a bad habit.
“I was pleased the lads kept battling away. We hung in there.
“Maybe the Chelsea game knocked a bit out of a few of the lads – one or two looked tired – but credit to them, they kept going.
“It keeps that momentum going from Chelsea and hopefully we can continue that against Tottenham.”
