Ollie reflects on Wednesday defeat

QPR boss Ian Holloway was left pondering what might have been, as Rangers lost by the odd goal for the fifth match in a row.

Adam Reach opened the scoring on 12 minutes, only for Idrissa Sylla to equalise nine minutes later with his tenth goal of the season.

But Wednesday had the final say before the break, with Daniel Pudil heading home what turned out to be the winner, leaving Holloway reflecting on another home defeat.

“Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be happening for us at the moment,” Holloway told www.qpr.co.uk.

“Its fine margins in this division.

“We're not taking our opportunities but the effort, work-rate and organisation is there.

“But you can't concede two goals like we did from set pieces.

“We threw everything at them in the second half but we couldn't break them down.

“We pinned them in but we didn't have the quality to create enough chances.

“We've got to focus on the next game now. We still need points.”

Injuries

Holloway was minus the services of skipper Nedum Onuoha and Grant Hall for the clash against the Owls, but hopes both will be in contention for next weekend’s key clash against local rivals Brentford at Griffin Park.

He added: “We want to be a Championship club next season but we've still got a little way to go.

“We missed Nedum and Hally - that left us short. They were injured. That hurt us.

“We didn't have the balance we needed today because of who wasn't available for us.

“People are in and out of form and confidence at the moment.

“It's on with the next game now though – that’s our focus.

“Our fans know how I feel about the next one. We need to put the season to bed and we'll be aiming to do it there.”
