Sousa - Two Points Dropped

Sousa - Two Points Dropped

Paulo Sousa believed that QPR were the better side as they were held to a 0-0 draw against Cardiff City.

Speaking post match to QPR.co.uk the Portuguese boss believed that Rangers more than matched a side with ambitions of Premier League, believing the R`s could have 'won easily`.

He said: 'We lost two points today. We showed a lot of personality and character and created a lot of opportunities, playing fantastic football,

'After the game against Ipswich we received a lot of criticism. We didn't play well then, but today we sent out a very positive message to those people, with a good performance against a Club with big ambitions for the Premier League.

'They have invested a lot and this is also a very difficult place to come, with a strong atmosphere. But we showed personality, playing fantastic football.

'We could have won the game easily, but it didn't happen, but that is no fault of my players, who gave me excellent effort.'


Sousa also has special words of praise for midfield general Gavin Mahon who bounced back in style to put in a classy performance against the Bluebirds.

Sousa said: 'Gavin showed what a good professional and good player he is tonight,

'You can have bad moments sometimes, but it is how you respond and he showed great character.'


As the season begins to draw to a close Paulo indicated that Rangers are not far away from a playoff place and judging by the performance yesterday evening - anything is possible.

'We have always been very close to the top-six," said Sousa.

'With two or three wins, you can go up the league significantly.

'Playing like we played tonight, we need to believe that anything is possible.

'I always say that to my players - believe in yourselves, because you can play very good football and win, just believe it.

'We have overcome the barrier of winning away in recent months, and now we are playing good football too.

'With good energy from everyone, and not criticism, we can make things possible.'


Rangers now move on from a positive point at Ninian Park to face perennial strugglers Barnsley in what will no doubt be a tough test at Oakwell this Saturday.

Got to agree I thought we were on top for the vast majority of the second period, and we let ourselves down in the final third - encouraging signs though.
