Jordan impressed by Albion defence
Joe Jordan has praised Albion’s defensive performance at Loftus Road.
But the QPR first team coach reckoned his side made life far tougher for the Seagulls than Reading did at the weekend.
Albion are unbeaten in five matches after 0-0 draws at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday and in West London against the new Championship leaders last night.
Jordan felt QPR could have ended that run after denying their visitors possession for long periods.
- Barnes hopes loan star returns
- Ward could be struggling for Boro date
- Fringe pair set to play again
- Abion loan star unsure about future
- Albion get home draw in Senior Cup
He said: “I watched them at the weekend at Reading and they dominated possession, although the game was ruined by a little bit by a player getting sent off from each team.
“We certainly didn’t want that to happen and it didn’t happen.
“Brighton didn’t in any way control the tempo of the game – we did that.
“What they did to their credit was they sat in and made it very difficult for us.
“I thought we had some good chances but we needed to take that chance.
“If you take that chance and you score that goal, then the game changes.
“The way the other team takes part in the game changes as well.
“But, as it remained 0-0, I think they were quite happy to see it that way.”
Jordan had no complaints at referee Andy Madley waving play on when Albion scrambled the ball off their goal-line in the second half.
He said: “I think it was on the line. They (the QPR players) never really made any comment about being denied a goal.
“I just hoped there would be someone who would react to the opportunity and put it in like Charlie (Austin) did at the weekend.”
