QPR boss admits his side couldn’t cope with Sheffield United as he thanks fans for supporting ahead of summer outing UK News

With a host of clubs stretched thin, United knew they could not afford slip-ups at this critical stage of the season, but were trailing at half-time in the capital, thanks to Charlie Austin’s header.

“We gave away the ball cheaply, they came into the game and watched the better team.

“In the second half we wanted to take care of the football and we didn’t. They went up a level and we didn’t match that.

“We had to take care of the ball but we were reckless and went too easily. They raised the bar and we didn’t match it. We are professionals and every time you put on a jersey in front of your fans, you have a responsibility to be the best you can be.

“It meant a lot,” he said. “It’s not about ego or any of that nonsense; the fans were very supportive, and it was a real thank you for their support.
