MARTINO Chevannes rued ‘two points dropped’ after QPR Ladies’ bid to beat the drop stuttered against Colchester United on Sunday.
The U’s twice came from behind to deny Rangers a crucial victory, who conceded a late leveller for the second week in succession.
Goals from Sarah Staples and Kim Meadows proved in vein as two lapses of concentration at the back ultimately proved costly.
“I’m really disappointed,” the R’s boss told www.qpr.co.uk. “Two weeks in a row we’ve shot ourselves in the foot.
“We were looking comfortable but we gifted them a way back into the game.
“We were worthy of the three points but we’ve let it slip late on with another poor defensive error that’s cost us.”
Sunday also saw relegation rivals Tottenham Hotspur – who the R's travel to this weekend – slump to defeat to Yeovil Town.
Chevannes knows how important victory – which would have taken Rangers level with their London rivals – could have been ahead of the sides’ crunch clash on Sunday
“A win was crucial,” he added. “It was a must-win game in every sense of the word and we’ve failed to do that.
“With the team directly above us losing it was a great opportunity for us to gain ground and get level on points with them.
“I don’t feel like we’ve gained a point, I feel like we’ve lost two.”
With three games remaining, Chevannes is under no illusions about the challenge facing Rangers to save their Premier League (South) status.
He admitted: “We need three wins out of our remaining three games.
“The task is looking more and more impossible as each week goes by."
