Eustace explains Cameron absence and other changes after QPR win

John Eustace felt his tactical changes paid off again against Swansea.

The QPR caretaker boss made changes for the midweek draw at Millwall and freshened things up again at Loftus Road, where the home side stormed to a 4-0 win.

Tomer Hemed, restored up front, scored twice, while there were also recalls for Jordan Cousins, Angel Rangel and Bright Osayi-Samuel.

Eustace, who insisted he is not a contender for the manager’s job, said: “We went to Millwall on Wednesday and the lads were fantastic – they battled and they fought.

“It was important we changed a few bodies to get us energy on the pitch today and tactically we approached it differently from Wednesday. I think it worked.

“It was different opposition and Swansea are a completely different animal to Millwall.

“Tactically it was right to do that. It was very harsh on the boys who played on Wednesday, who were different class.”

Geoff Cameron, recently back from a long-term injury, was left out of the matchday squad altogether.

Eustace said: “Geoff’s been different class for the last two games.

“He’s come back from a long injury. We needed that energy in midfield today and I think the lads in there did a great job.”
