Magilton Pulls No Punches
Jim Magilton once again refused to defend his players in the wake of another poor performance at home, this time against League Two Accrington Stanley.
Rangers went on to win the game by two goals to one but the R`s gaffer told QPR.co.uk that he is going to 'shake the living daylights` out of some of his players.
'I expect far, far better from the lads, he said.
'It was a real potential banana skin, but Accrington deserve credit - they were outstanding to a man.
'Unfortunately, we've got a certain few who believe they can just turn it on and off, but you can't in this game.
'You always need to show your opponents respect, but one or two of our lads were kidding themselves tonight with their performances.
'I'm going to shake the living daylights of them!'
Goals from Hogan Ephraim and Wayne Routeldge put QPR two goals to the good in the second period, when opportunities for Symes and McConville weren`t taken in the first period.
Symes did in fact bag a consolation and Magilton was impressed with what he saw in John Coleman`s side.
He continued: 'They came here with nothing to lose, but you can only commend them for a quite magnificent display.
'They totally outplayed us in the first half.
'The goal gave us a lift, but we couldn't have played any worse than we did in the first half.
'You can't defend that first half display. It's just not good enough and things need to improve very, very quickly.'
The draw for the third round will take place on Saturday with the Premier League big boys entering the draw for the first time.
