Holloway pleased with QPR display

Ian Holloway praised his players after QPR’s goalless draw at Ipswich.

The visitors picked up a deserved point at Portman Road, where they played the final few minutes with 10 men after Josh Scowen was sent off.

“They showed some unbelievable tenacity against a very good team. I thought we played very well today,” the Rangers boss said.

“I was delighted particularly with parts of the first half. We got into some very good positions and didn’t quite get the run of the green.”

Holloway also praised Bright Osayi-Samuel, who impressed when give a starting place against Bristol City and troubled Ipswich after coming on as a substitute.

Seemingly annoyed by apparent criticism of the decision to take Osayi-Samuel off against Bristol City, Holloway said: “Bright, with the pace that he’s got coming off the bench, it’s quite exciting.

“Just for all our fans, I took him off the other day because his calf’s cramped up because he hadn’t been playing.

“I really like the kid. I think he’s got a freshness about him. Do you think I’d have brought him off if he couldn’t hardly walk? It (criticism) is just amazing. But there you go.”
