Jim Lambastes 'Woeful' Defending

Rangers boss Jim Magilton was scathing of his defenders performances after the R's 1-1 home draw with Coventry City.

QPR were a goal down courtesy of a Leon Best header before hauling themselves in front with goals from Jay Simpson and Ákos Buzsáky.

Richard Wood nodded home unchallenged with just short of ten minutes remaining to secure Coventry City a share of the spoils.

Both Sky Blues goals came from set-pieces, something that Magilton told QPR.co.uk was an 'absolute joke.'

He said: 'If you don't defend properly, if you don't do what is necessary to win football matches, then that's the result.

'Both goals were woeful. We've had two Saturdays now where the goals have been an absolute joke."


Despite his disappointment at his side`s defending, he was pleased with Rangers overall play throughout the fixture.

'I think we created enough chances to win the game, albeit Coventry were still very much in it and looked very, very dangerous from set-pieces,' Jim continued.

'They caused us problems whenever the ball went near our box. But our general play was excellent, as was our composure.

'When we went a goal down we still looked to pass the ball. We then justifiably went 2-1 up, and on another day would have gone on to win the game quite comfortably.'


Rangers now have the unenviable task of hosting Middlesbrough next week, who themselves conceded twice against Peterborough United today.
