Iroegbunam backed after error in QPR defeat

QPR boss Mick Beale says Tim Iroegbunam will have learned a lot from Saturday’s 3-1 loss at Luton and that the youngster has his full backing.

The Aston Villa loanee, who played a major role in Rangers’ win over Reading last week, struggled against the Hatters and made a huge error that led to the home side’s second goal when he under-hit a back-pass to Seny Dieng.

The incident came as Rangers were enjoying their best spell of the game and also led to Jimmy Dunne being forced off the field after he collided heavily with keeper Dieng.

“He did so many good things in the game but he makes the error that leads to the goal,” Beale said.

“But that’s down to me and asking a 19-year-old to play and it’s me that’s putting him in the positions to be brave on the ball, and he has done that but been caught out.

“There is no blame attached to just one player. We weren’t great all round.

“We were OK in possession but when I asked the lads ‘Were any of you better than your opponent?’ not many of them can say yes.”

Meanwhile, Midlands publication the Express & Star have reported that Beale is being considered for the manager’s job at Wolves.
