QPR found themselves in good wide areas against Whites, but could not capitalise
Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway has called on his team to do better with their balls into the final third after being disappointed with their crosses against Leeds United.
The Rs struggled to create clear cut chances in their 3-1 defeat at home to the Whites on Saturday, despite often being in good positions in wide areas.
The balls that were delivered often found a Leeds defender, something which irked the QPR boss.
“When you get in that final zone, you have to pick out a proper cross where you don’t hit the opposition,” he said.
“You could say that’s the opposition’s defending, but against Leeds we got in too many areas where we didn’t find a ball for somebody.”
There was something for Holloway to be happy about against United, with Nedum Onuoha making his first appearance since overcoming a hamstring injury.
Grant Hall also returned form a lengthy lay-off in the defeat, coming on as a second half substitute, much to his manager’s delight.
“It’s great to have Nedum back and to have ‘Hally’ back for that little bit of experience,” added Holloway.
