Redknapp rues missed chances as his side are shocked at the Amex

The Argus: Harry Redknapp with Oscar Garcia last night Harry Redknapp with Oscar Garcia last night

Harry Redknapp reckoned an opening goal from QPR would have sunk Albion last night.

And he was desperately frustrated that they didn’t get it.

Albion boosted their play-off hopes – and probably ended QPR’s dreams of automatic promotion – by beating them 2-0 at the Amex.

But even Redknapp was surprised how much of the ball his men enjoyed.

He said: “I thought it would be a hard game but it wasn’t that hard a game, even though we lost.

“I’m the first to hold my head up when we get beat. We were useless at Nottingham Forest.

“But I thought for 80 minutes (last night) was as good as I’ve seen us play.

“We didn’t take our chances. We got great opportunities and I just felt we didn’t get a break.

“We were solid at the back, we were strong everywhere. It just needed a goal.

“I think if we had got our noses in front there would have been no problem.”

When you cast your mind back to some of the teams that have been here QPR were a breath of fresh air. All out for a win, Morrison, Barton, Clint Hill etc - fine players by any standard. That's what makes our win so satisfying!

But they didn't. and our defence unit kept them out.
Excellent performance, keeps the pressure on the other teams above us, and great to score more than once.
Maybe, all the praise that was posted on here a day or two ago for Stephen Ward did his confidence a power of good.

A good honest appraisal by Harry.
I have to admit that after 70 minutes I would have accepted a draw because Q.P.R. had created much more than us and looked the most likely to score.
What then transpired is why we turn up each week and endure games like Barnsley and travel 100 miles each way and get home at 2 in the morning.
Those golden moments.
Rangers looked a class act, played the game in the right way and no playing to the ref (Nigel Adkins please note).
We've played worse than this and won and played much better and not got our just desserts. Our defence was terrific and had the odd bit of luck whilst our attack was non existent for much of the game but came up with the goods at the end. We just kept going and maybe this is the springboard for the rest of the season. UTA

Wasn't a hard game? I thought we made it hard for them. Yes they may have had more of the ball than us but they looked toothless in attack with the lad Keane on loan from Man Utd looking hopeless in front of goal. QPR solid at the back do me a favour with two old timers at centre half they looked like an accident waiting to happen. I agree with one of Oscar's post match comments where he pointed out we have played far better than last night and lost (Wigan for example). I felt the passion and battling qualities that we saw from the Albion last night won us the game. If I were a QPR fan I would be trying to work out how they are not top two with the squad they have as with all due respect to Burnley they should be. Over paid prima donors I suspect!!.

Quote. I just felt we didn't get a break.
I thought the ref gave you more than you're fair share of breaks,good players but some times you just get that feeling that in some games a team won't score

I thought it a good game QPR were mainly on top with a very classy pass and move style but we held on strong and got the win although not fully deserved very welcome. I must say that all their best work came through Joey Barton, a player who is the pantomime villain but went up in my estimation, wouldn't really want him at our club due to his bad boy reputation but a great footballer just the same. All our players deserve the plaudits they receive as they stuck steadfastly to their task and got the win we all wanted. Well done to all concerned, just could you please try to settle a contest a little earlier as the stress is taking its toll on my health and i cannot afford at my age to lose any more time out of my life.........SEAGULL
