O`Neill - The Better Side Lost

O`Neill - The Better Side Lost

Villa boss Martin O`Neill has revealed his disappointment following the defeat against QPR - stating that Villa were the better side.

Speaking after his sides 1-0 defeat at home to QPR in Carling Cup, O`Neill couldn`t hide his disappointment that the best team ultimately didn`t win.

'It's a desperate disappointment and hard to take because I felt we should have won." O`Neill told AVFC.co.uk

'We had a number of chances in the game, particularly in the first half, but we spurned them."

'You do worry that they might come back to haunt you - but I always felt we were in control of the match."

'While there were moments in the game where QPR looked a fine, talented and entertaining side, the fact is we had enough chances to get through."


Marlon Harewood and Gareth Barry were guilty of missing some clear cut chances for the home side, and O`Neill believed it was a contribution to his sides downfall that they could not break the deadlock.

'It doesn't matter how well you play between the penalty boxes, you have to score when you have the opportunity and defend when you have to."

'I have to say there weren't that many times when we had to defend. I remember Craig Gardner getting a block in, in the first half and a couple of 35-yarders that didn't really trouble us."

'I feel if we had scored one of our chances in the first half, we would have gone on to win the game. We are really disappointed."
