Karanka says bobble for QPR goal was "unbelievable"

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka says QPR's second goal at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday was "unbelievable".

With the score poised at 1-1 in added time, a defensive back pass appeared to bobble over the foot of goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos and into the path of Bobby Zamora. The R's striker then had the simple task of rolling the ball into the empty net.

Another late strike from Ravel Morrison then sealed a 3-1 win for QPR.
