QPR manager Ian Holloway has admitted that he didn't see yesterday's result coming after a strong week for his team.

The Hoops fell to a heavy 4-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground to set an unwanted English record for the worst run of form at one particular club ground, and speaking after the game Holloway said that the first goal changed it.

He said: "The first goal in this game was vital – they got it. That first goal lifted them after we had started the better. I was surprised that we looked lacklustre when we got into good positions. We were not as sharp or as clinical as we have been.

“That made a huge difference. After they got the goal, they grew in confidence and we got a lot of things wrong.

“It was one of those days where I cannot count anyone who has done well in my team. Unfortunately the last goal summed it up.

“We have been ever so good in the last month, but we do have a voodoo curse here by the look of it and that was continued.

“Am I disappointed? Yes. But I have to take a wider view of things, because we have been very good in recent weeks."

He continued: "I did not sense this coming, not at all. You have to be kidding me? We had beaten two of the top teams in the division, coming into this,” he said.

“I don’t know what the difference was. We had almost the same team out there. We had the same formation and we should have had the same performance.

“There is no excuse for it. But we got beaten by a better team today.

“There is a long season to go. We cannot get too carried away. I will watch the video and hopefully I can find a few things that we can correct."
