Jim Magilton was scathing of his side's defending as Doncaster Rovers overcame Queens Park Rangers at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Rangers were put to the sword on a windswept afternoon in Yorkshire as goals from Billy Sharp and Dean Shiels condemned them to defeat.

The defensive unit came in for particular criticism as they fell asleep on two occasions to allow Rovers to net twice and take three points.

Jim told QPR.co.uk that Rangers fell asleep at crucial times and both goals were a particular disappointment on a tough day.

'We fell asleep for their first goal,' he said.

'I was very disappointed with both goals - they were really, really poor.

'We were probably the architects of our own downfall today, we didn't defend properly.'


Jim admitted the defeat gave his thoughts some much-needed clarity in a game that could have gone either way despite the home side's continued pressure.

He said that Simpson's chance proved to be a marker for the performance and overall the side weren't at their best on the afternoon.

Jim continued: 'We had a great opportunity at the start of the second half, but didn't take it.

'Jay's miss probably summed up our afternoon, we weren't really at it.

'We looked lethargic and like we'd had two weeks off. It's a reality check for us all.'


Rangers now host Coventry City next week in what is now a must-win game if Rangers harbour ambitions of attaining a playoff position.

A particular concern to Magilton will be the lack of clean sheets, only one in the last ten games, and three all season.
