Holloway looks back on Leeds defeat

QPR boss Ian Holloway offered his thoughts following today's 3-1 defeat to Leeds United at Loftus Road.

Kemar Roofe struck a second half hat-trick to hand the in-form Whites maximum points in W12, despite the Hoops bagging a late goal courtesy of Pawel Wszolek's freak effort.

Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, a disappointed Holloway said: "It's bitterly disappointing.

"I thought we played well in the first half, but we couldn't get the breakthrough goal I thought we deserved.

"We didn't need half-time, because we were the team in the ascendancy at that point.

"A five minute spell in the second half cost us though.

"We didn't defend the first goal well. Roofe rarely wins a header in the box like that.

"The late goal gave us hope, but then we gave away a third goal, which was so disappointing.

"The way we defended that third goal was really poor."

Holloway added: "I thought the fans were excellent today.

"They really stuck by the team.

"We've got to all stick together, keep working hard.

"We will get our rewards in the end.

"Luckily we've got one or two coming back from injury now.

"It was great to see Nedum back and Hally on the bench.

"We've got to go to Birmingham next weekend and look to turn things around."

We've got to all stick together, keep working hard.
