Ollie: ’90% of that was very good!’

QPR boss Ian Holloway was pleased to see his side pick up a fully-deserved point at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers lead midway through the first-half courtesy of Jamie Mackie’s sweet finish, only for the Owls to draw level early in the second half through Sam Winnall.

The Hoops had chances to win it late on, with sub Kazenga LuaLua squandering a gilt-edged chance with his first touch, but despite that missed opportunity, Holloway was full of praise for his charges.

It's a really pleasing point,” said Holloway.

“The performance was a big step forward for us.

“We can build from a display like that, especially the first 45 minutes when I thought we were by far the better side.

“They scored early in the second half but that's when we really dug in and played our way back into the match.

“They're a really good team but we survived a wobble and almost won it in the end, which on the overall balance of things, we might've just deserved.”

Holloway added: “Ninety per-cent of that performance pleased me. The other ten per-cent we can work on.

“We got a lot right and we can gain a lot of confidence from that.

“It's a positive start for us but that’s all it is.

“We looked well organised, created chances and gave a strong Wednesday side a really tough game.

“We saw both sides of our game today, both defensively and from an attacking point of view. We passed both tests I thought.”
