Defeat summed up QPR’s season – Green

QPR goalkeeper Rob Green said the 2-0 defeat at Brighton on Tuesday summed up their season as their promotion bid took another dent.

Harry Redknapp’s side enjoyed a large share of possession and territory at the Amex Stadium but couldn’t turn that into goals – and they were made to pay by late strikes from Leonardo Ulloa and Stephen Ward.

Green, who didn’t have a save to make until the 67th minute, admitted the dressing room was frustrated at having let the match slip away.

He said: “We dominated possession, particularly in their half. But the longer it stays 0-0 the more prone you are to conceding a goal to an odd slip.

“We dominated the chances and have come away with a 2-0 defeat. It’s immensely frustrating and disappointing.

“But this is what happens at this level. If the chances come your way and you don’t take them you leave yourself susceptible to one defensive lapse [which] is going to cost you.

“It’s a little picture of our season. Sometimes we haven’t created chances but tonight we did and we weren’t clinical enough in that area.”

However, the Rangers keeper is not yet giving up on automatic promotion, despite Leicester and Burnley looking favourites for the top two.

He said: “We’re still looking to win every game that we’ve got left between now and the end of the season and see where we end up. If it’s in the play-offs so be it.”
