Sousa Happy With Second Half Showing

Sousa Happy With Second Half Showing

Rangers manager Paulo Sousa was pleased with his side`s performance in the stalemate against Watford in W12.

Sousa believed that his side deserved more from the game in which he believed the R`s controlled the second period. He spoke to QPR.co.uk after the 0-0 draw.

He said: 'I was disappointed with the first half, but more than pleased with the second period,'

'We conceded a lot to a good Watford side in the first 25 minutes, but after that we controlled the match.

'We made a change at half-time and the intensity of our performance improved.

'We had good chances to win the match in the second half, but the ball just didn't go in for us.'


Despite a couple of games without a win, Sousa justified the sheer amount of changes that were made over the Christmas period.

He said: 'The nature of this Championship forces you to make turnovers.

'It is a squad game and I am pleased with how all the players have performed in the last two matches.

'I think we deserved more than the two points we got against Charlton and Watford, but we are still on a positive run.'


While keen to push the idea of having a strong squad, Sousa believed that Rangers need to strengthen in certain areas in January, he has already identified the key positions to help Rangers kick on.

He said: 'We have identified the areas we want to strengthen and hopefully we can bring in the players we want,' he said.

'It is not a case of having to strengthen, but we would like to add some players in one or two areas. Even if we can't, I am confident we can push on in the New Year, because I have every confidence in this group of players.

'We go back to playing one match a week in the New Year, which will allow me to implement my ideas on the training pitch and that is very good for us.'

I know he's got to talk up his team - give em confidence, etc - but honestly, I could see NOTHING good from our performance at any time yesterday! Yes, we had a better 2nd half than 1st half - but you'd expect that at some stage of the game!! No - I think it might be back to the drawing board from Mr Sousa after the last 2 games!!
