In the post match press conference, Mark Hughes said, “It was another disappointing day for us. The boys played well in the first half, but, in the second half, they were a bit defensive in their approach. They should have attacked a bit more.”
“When you lose too many matches, you tend to lack self belief and you start getting nervous during the vital moments of the game and that’s what happened with the boys today. In the last 10 minutes, we were not up to the mark at all.”
“There are still a lot of matches to be played in the competition. So, there is no reason why we can’t make a comeback.”
QPR will play its next match against Everton on 21st of October at the Loftus Road Stadium.
