Ollie: Our supporters never gave up

IAN Holloway has praised the impact of the QPR fans in helping his team come back from 2-0 down to take a fully-deserved point at Fulham this afternoon.

Goals from Massimo Luongo and Pawel Wszolek ensured a share of the spoils for the R’s after Tom Cairney and Lucas Piazon had given the hosts the early advantage.

Nearly 3,000 R’s fans were in attendance to witness the comeback, and Holloway told www.qpr.co.uk: “You have to congratulate our fans and the players for believing in themselves.

“We looked a very good team in the end. To be honest, how we haven’t won it I don’t know!”

Holloway admitted he wasn’t pleased with the first-half showing from his side, explaining: “Our pressing in the first half wasn’t good enough.

“They won the ball off us so easily but in fairness to them they have been on a good run of form so fair play to them.

“But that was us in the second half and I feel disappointed we haven’t come away with all three points.

“I had a rant at half-time and explained to them that they needed to get closer to people. They certainly didn’t look as good in the second half and that was down to what we did to them.

“We got what we deserved in the end which was at least a point. I’m delighted for the boys because that was a really good, spirited fightback.

“And I have to say I am delighted with the character we showed.

“We had a lot of breakaway chances that we didn’t take, and really we should have been more clinical.”

Rangers have now picked up two wins and two draws from their last four fixtures, and Holloway added: “I believe in my team and I believe in what I am doing.

“I need them to be more consistent. Do I expect my young lads to be consistent at this stage? Not really, but I am going to show them.”

We looked a very good team in the end.
