Charlie Austin frustrated despite QPR's win over Newcastle


Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin was not particularly satisfied with his team's performance despite their win over Newcastle United.

Charlie Austin has told Queens Park Rangers' official site that he was disappointed with his side's performance against Newcastle United.

Although QPR beat Newcastle 2-1, Austin feels that they let themselves down in the first half, as they failed to compete.

Newcastle commanded the first 45 minutes, before QPR came back in the second half to win, and Austin still wasn't fully satisfied in spite of the three points.

“Last week we were below par,” Austin admitted. “Since Chris has come in that is one of the first times we haven’t laid a glove on the opposition.

“We needed to put in a performance, we didn’t really come out in the first half but we put in a good enough performance in the end to get the three points.”

It is true that QPR have competed better since Chris Ramsey has taken charge, but they have still fallen short.

The London outfit were relegated without putting up much of a fight and they now face a season competing in the Championship.

The R's will be hoping their desire to trouble opponents pays more dividends in the second tier, as they will be looking for an immediate return to the Premier League.

Whether Austin will be part of that promotion push remains to be seen, though, as the striker looks likely to move on in the summer after scoring 17 goals this term.
