After Queens Park Rangers conceded a late goal against Chelsea, which led to their defeat at Loftus Road, manager Chris Ramsey revealed his disappointment in their failure to throw away a valuable point, reports BBC
Queens Park Rangers performed admirably against the Premier League leaders on Sunday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough to earn them a share of the spoils. The Londoners had their own chances to take the lead, with Charlie Austin guilty of profligacy at times, and Bobby Zamora also failing to take his opportunities.
Chelsea punished their rivals late in the game, with Cesc Fabregas scoring with only minutes to go. The Premier League giants were far from their best, but they came away from Loftus Road with maximum points regardless.
Rangers manager Chris Ramsey was very critical of his side’s concentration levels, as he felt they switched off at a crucial time that cost them a result. With the Hoops in a precarious position in the Premier League at the business end to the campaign, Ramsey is allowed no room for errors.
Following the game, he was quoted as saying: “I am very, very disappointed to lose. Detail kills you and when you have top players like they do, you get done. One shot or two shots and the top players score. We have let two or three goals in from the same position in the last few weeks and players haven’t been able to concentrate enough.”
“We are still in with a fight, everyone is disappointed and I just feel sorry for the crowd. We have ourselves to blame because of our concentration. Our concentration has been appalling. We have let late goals in in most games. The players don’t need lifting, they will lift themselves.”
