Gallen targets three more wins as Under-18 season edges to a close ...

UNDER-18s manager Steve Gallen is aiming to end the season with 15 straight league wins as his sides’ season enters the final furlong.

Rangers youth team are on a 12 game hot streak having not dropped a point since the end of September, only conceding seven goals in the process.

They currently top the Professional Development League South table and are keen to secure a top two finish and a place in the end of season play-offs.

“If we could finish the season with 15 wins in a row that would be unbelievable,” Gallen told www.qpr.co.uk.

“It’s not something we are thinking about. I think we need four points from the next three matches to guarantee a top two finish. 

“I think maybe we have gone 12 games unbeaten before – but 12 wins out of 12 – wow!

“We don’t really think about it too much though. I know it sounds a bit of a cliché but we just take each game as it comes. 

“The run has been excellent but the performances since the turn of the year have really improved.”

That improvement has made the push for the top a three horse race.

Rangers lead Charlton Athletic by five points, but the Addicks have two games in hand, whilst third placed Colchester United are poised to take advantage of any late slip-ups.

However, Gallen is for now just looking forward to facing Millwall this weekend after the disappointment of last Saturday’s postponement against Swansea City.

“It was frustrating not having a game because of the run we are on. We want to keep playing each Saturday,” he said.

“We’ve a tough game this weekend though. Millwall beat us early in the season 2-1 and deservedly so. 

“The scoreline might have even flattered us that day but since then we have improved considerably. They are capable of upsetting any team.”

The Lions visit Harlington at 10:45am on Saturday morning. Supporters are welcome to attend to watch.
