'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sousa Unhappy At Disallowed Goal

Paulo Sousa was once again proud of his QPR side but believes that Martin Rowlands disallowed effort should have been allowed to stand.

Rangers took a point at Home Park courtesy of Heidar Helguson`s first strike for the club - the R`s first goal in 793 minutes of away football.

The R`s then had the ball in the back of the net, but Martin Rowlands neat drive from distance was ruled out for offside, a decision that the Portuguese boss wasn`t best pleased with:

'I felt the goal should have stood, of course I felt that." Sousa told QPR.co.uk

'I have not seen it again yet but I felt the goal should have been given.

'But I do not want to criticise the referee as he has a very difficult job to do.'


Prior to that incident the referee had another big decision to make - one for which Rangers fans had the perfect view, and one which Mr Friend and his assistant got spot on.

When the ball was pulled back from the by-line Krizstian Timar`s effort was blocked and hacked away from Damien Delaney inches from the goal-line. While Sousa didn`t have the best view of the incident he didn`t believe it had crossed the line:

'It was not easy for me to see but I don't think the ball crossed the line.'

Overall Sousa was pleased with the performance of his players, most notably goalscorer Heidar Helguson, who finally got off the mark for Rangers after failing to convert a host of chances in recent games.

'It was very pleasing to see Heidar score,' Sousa added.

'It will do a lot for him.

'As a striker you always want to score goals, and sometimes you have to break through a wall to go from being a striker to being a striker that scores.

'He has done that now and it will do a lot for his confidence.'

'This is a very difficult place to come, so it is good to pick up a point.

'Many teams will come here this season and not achieve that.

'The pitch was not in very good condition but we tried to bring the ball down and play football.'
