Rangers were unlucky, Traore insists

Armand Traore believes QPR were unlucky not to grab all three points at Vicarage Road, where their winless streak continued.

The 24-year-old replaced Junior Hoilett in the second half of the 0-0 draw against Watford.

And he said: “I thought we had very good possession of the ball and to be fair I think we deserved a goal, but sometimes it doesn’t happen and it was one of those days.

“I thought if we had scored in the first half we could have gone on and scored a few more in the second half, but we have to give credit to Watford as they were strong and solid defensively.”

Without a win or even a goal in three matches, Rangers now find themselves fourth in the table – five points behind leaders Leicester.

They have missed top scorer Charlie Austin, who hopes to recover from a hamstring problem in time for the match against Doncaster at Loftus Road on New Years Day.

But Traore insisted: “I don’t think it [relying on Austin] is a concern for us. We can score goals from people like Junior Hoilett, and Matt Phillips has scored a couple recently as well.

“Sometimes Charlie needs a little bit of a rest as he is up front on his own and it is hard for him, but he’s done really well for us.

“We went to Doncaster and lost earlier in the season so it won’t be an easy game. Obviously every game we play we want to win but we aren’t worrying at the minute and are working together to get back to winning ways.”
