They were better in both boxes admits Paul after Rangers loss

Paul Lambert conceded Town didn’t threaten enough and paid the price for mistakes at the other end of the pitch after watching his side go down at Loftus Road.

Two first-half goals in quick succession from Pawel Wszolek and Joel Lynch and a third late on from Nahki Wells maintained Rangers’ push for the Play-Off places.

“We started the game well but their first goal came from a mistake when we had the ball and then they’ve scored from a free-kick straight after,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“I have told Jon [Nolan] to pass so no problem with that. No blame to him. He’s done really well for us. The second goal, we should defend better from a standard free-kick and the third we should never have let him [Wells] turn.

“We didn’t really threaten them enough. They made it difficult and got players behind the ball and that was the difference between the teams - at both ends of the pitch.

“We have to go again but today we didn’t deserve anymore. Credit to QPR, they made it difficult for us and they were better than us in both boxes but I was disappointed we didn’t threaten more.”
