Missed chances against Millwall, Middlesbrough and Fulham are proving costly, says QPR manager

The Hoops missed a number of chances in last night's defeat against Fulham, and Ollie said it's certainly something that needs to be worked on.

Ian Holloway says that QPR need to be more ruthless in front of goal if they are to return to winning ways.

The Hoops missed a number of chances in last night's defeat against Fulham, and Ollie said it's certainly something that needs to be worked on.

Speaking of his side's missed chances, he said: "The one with Luke Freeman, it was a good move, a fantastic ball which cut them open and he’s tried to slot it under the goalkeeper.

"I never have a go at anybody who keeps trying and doesn’t score but in every since game we’ve missed quite a significant chance to change things.

"Millwall, first half we hit the post. Middlesbrough, second half we hit the post. Fulham, we had three or four where we didn’t come back. We’ll go back and we’ll keep practicing but I can’t ask for any more than that.

“Sometimes in football you get what you deserve and sometimes you don’t, and unfortunately tonight we didn’t.

“Such is life, and I’ll be realistic that we can’t miss that many chances. In every game this season we have missed quite a significant chance to change things."

Ollie even threw goalkeeper Alex Smithies forward in the final moments in an attempt to get a goal, a move which saw Smithies head the ball wide of the target.

Speaking of the decision, Ollie joked: "I just told him, If I knew you had a triangle-shaped head I wouldn’t have sent you up for it!

"‘Toblerone head' the boys called him."
