The manager of Queens Park Rangers, Harry Redknapp, has said that he doesn’t want to use the strong words for his players even after their blunders in the match against Wigan Athletic which was played at the Loftus Road Stadium on Sunday.
That match finished in the form of a draw and QPR managed to get only one point. The Rangers need points badly to make their way out of the relegation zone and they were desperately looking for a victory against Wigan.
However, one thing for which the Rangers need to be praised is that they played with only 10 players for almost 70 minutes of the match, but, they didn’t let the opposition capitalize on that.
However, in the last few moments, the Rangers made some big mistakes and as a result of that, they lost a couple of points.
The rangers went ahead by 1-0 with the goal of Loic Remy in the 85th minute. That seemed to be the decisive blow, but, Latics didn’t have the same opinion. They were not ready to give up and their fighting attitude paid off in the 4th minute of the injury time when Shaun Maloney found the net for them.
Maloney’s shot could have been cleared by Adel Taarabt, but, he didn’t keep his eye on the ball. He turned the other way and the ball went over him. His team mates looked gutted after that leveller.
Talking to the reporters after the match, Redknapp said, “This is a team which is very low in confidence. All the guys are nervous at this point of time. So, I don’t want to demoralize them even more by criticizing them here.”
“I just want to look at the positives. We were one guy short for a large part of the match and despite that, we didn’t let them dominate. It was a fighting effort by the team.”
