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

Sousa - Not Enough Chances

Paulo Sousa was disappointed with his side in the wake of their FA Cup stalemate with Burnley.

The R`s boss spoke to QPR.co.uk following the goalless draw in W12 indicating that he was disappointed the R`s couldn`t break down a stubborn Burnley rearguard.

He said: 'Of course we want to win every game, but it was a very tough fixture today.

'They played very well and defended in numbers. The first and second phase of our play was good, but we didn't create as many chances as we have done in previous weeks.

'The last moment of our offensive organisation wasn't as good as it can be. In previous weeks we have created chances and scored goals. Today, we controlled long spells of the game - the first and second phase in particular - and made good transitions, but didn't create chances.

'Sometimes football is like that, but we can go up to Burnley and get a result.'


Sousa also hit out at referee Tony Bates, who he believed missed a key incident involving substitute Emmanuel Ledesma.

He continued: 'We didn't have any help from the referee,'

'I don't like to speak too much about the officials, because they have a very tough job, but he (the referee) missed a lot today.

'The last game against Watford, Fitz (Hall) broke his nose because of a foul. Everyone saw it, apart from the referee.

'Today, Emmanuel (Ledesma) was caught with an elbow and he failed to spot it again. It was one against one and somehow he missed it.

'We need to protect the game and the players are a big part of the game. Without that protection, it is tough.'


Rangers now must travel to Turf Moor in a replay, and should they achieve the incredible feat of beating the Clarets, they find out their opponents in the draw this afternoon.

For all the reaction to the draw stay tuned to Vital QPR.
