Rodney brought down by Dave Mackay
Rodney now helps up Dave Mackay

Rodney Marsh
"A memorable match"

QPR 1 v Derby County 0
BBC TV "Match of the Day"; Sat. 7th Feb. 1970

Derby disappointed and Rangers always appeared to be superior - although the only goal of the game had a little help from Dave Mackay!

Rangers Report

"If I had a son to whom I wanted to show what ball control is all about, I would take him to see Rangers and Rodney. If I had a visitor whom I wanted to persuade about the fun and artistry of football, I would take him to Loftus Road and merely point. Marsh capsuled all his talents into a glorious opening 15 minutes - and Derby were lucky to escape a two or three goal battering." (Peter Blackman, EVENING STANDARD)

"But Rangers deserved their win, specially for the wonders they produced in the first half when Marsh played some of the finest football of his career. Derby were repeatedly forced back as Marsh beat man after man from one side of the pitch to the other which left me crouched on a press seat a a yard from the touchline, feeling as dizzy as Mackay's lot." (John Moynihan, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

"The result was right, for Rangers ran the normally so-professional County quite ragged. It was back to the glory, glory days at Loftus road with Rangers dominating 75% of a cup-tie that had thrills, spills and incidents galore." (Ken Montgomery, SUNDAY MIRROR)
