Rodney Marsh expresses an intriguing view on QPR's Cup exit on Twitter

Nottingham Forest knocked Queens Park Rangers out of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Rodney Marsh feels QPR's FA Cup exit at the hands of Nottingham Forest could be 'the best thing' that happens to the west London side this season.

Forest beat the R's 1-0 on Saturday afternoon as the Loftus Road outfit's poor recent form continued.

But Marsh has expressed an intriguing view on Twitter following QPR's defeat to Nottingham Forest:

Forest are only a point above QPR in the Championship but will no doubt be boosted by their FA Cup win at the City Ground.

Dougie Freedman will hope the Nottingham Forest squad can take some momentum into the league from it.

As for the R's, however, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has endured a very slow start indeed to his career in west London.

What can QPR fans realistically expect from their season now? Is there any chance of a late play-off bid or even a top-half finish? Should R's supporters get used to being in the bottom half - or could they even slip into a relegation battle?

In that sense, Marsh could be right about their cup exit at least doing them a little bit of good...
