Queens Park Rangers’ Robert Green: This is what we need to work on

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green says that the side must score more goals and defend better.

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green has highlighted the areas his side need to work on during the two-week international break.

The London outfit gained promotion to the Premier League at the end of last season after winning the Championship playoff final in dramatic style.

Harry Redknapp’s side have a number of high-profile players, such as Rio Ferdinand, Joey Barton, Niko Kranjcar and Bobby Zamora, but they have made a disappointing start to the 2014-15 campaign.

Heading into the two-week international break, Rangers find themselves at the foot of the league table with just four points from seven matches.

QPR have scored just four goals and have conceded 15, which means that both the defence and the attack need to get better.

Which is exactly what the Rangers players are going to work on between now and the resumption of Premier League, says Green.

‘What do we need to work on during this break? Not conceding goals and scoring more!’ the 34-year-old told QPR’s official website. ‘From my point of view, I’m the goalkeeper, so I’ve got an easy job.

‘It’s up to the manager to decide what we need to work on. But, first and foremost, we’ve conceded too many and not scored enough, and they’re fundamental basics in football’.

QPR’s next Premier League clash is on Sunday, October 19. Liverpool come to visit them at Loftus Road, and it will not be easy to pick up even a point against Brendan Rodgers’s side.
