Chris Ramsey bemoans Queens Park Rangers' defending

QPR Crest

Queens Park Rangers have conceded 12 goals in their opening seven Championship matches of the season.

Chris Ramsey has admitted to Queens Park Rangers' official website that the amount of individual errors his side have made so far this season has surprised him.

QPR have looked vulnerable defensively, at times, this term and Ramsey is keen to iron out the mistakes that are being made. 

On Wednesday night, the R's were only able to collect a point against Blackburn Rovers in a 2-2 draw, and the porous nature of their defence is frustrating the 53-year-old boss. 

“We’ve got to stop conceding soft goals," he raged. “I’m gobsmacked, because a lot of the goals we’re conceding are coming from individual mistakes.

“We’re not getting undone tactically with the goals we’re conceding –we’re just being too sloppy, making individual errors, and it’s costing us at the moment.”

QPR have conceded 12 times in their opening seven matches in the Championship season, and their attacking quality is carrying them through at the moment.

The likes of Charlie Austin, Matt Phillips and summer signing Tjaronn Chery have all been in fine form over the early part of the season, and their threat has been hugely valuable to the side.

The 13 goals that QPR have scored have made them a dangerous opponent, and at the moment they occupy a position just outside the play-off spaces.

Ramsey, therefore, knows where the problem lies in his QPR squad, and he will be hoping to tighten up their defence ahead of their weekend match against Hull City.
