Jim Magilton once again refused to defend his players in the wake of another poor performance at home, this time against League Two Accrington Stanley.

Rangers went on to win the game by two goals to one but the R`s gaffer told QPR.co.uk that he is going to ‘shake the living daylights` out of some of his players.

‘I expect far, far better from the lads, he said.

‘It was a real potential banana skin, but Accrington deserve credit – they were outstanding to a man.

‘Unfortunately, we’ve got a certain few who believe they can just turn it on and off, but you can’t in this game.

‘You always need to show your opponents respect, but one or two of our lads were kidding themselves tonight with their performances.

‘I’m going to shake the living daylights of them!’


Goals from Hogan Ephraim and Wayne Routeldge put QPR two goals to the good in the second period, when opportunities for Symes and McConville weren`t taken in the first period.

Symes did in fact bag a consolation and Magilton was impressed with what he saw in John Coleman`s side.

He continued: ‘They came here with nothing to lose, but you can only commend them for a quite magnificent display.

‘They totally outplayed us in the first half.

‘The goal gave us a lift, but we couldn’t have played any worse than we did in the first half.

‘You can’t defend that first half display. It’s just not good enough and things need to improve very, very quickly.’


The draw for the third round will take place on Saturday with the Premier League big boys entering the draw for the first time.

  • Loving Jim’s quote there, and I hope he gets the players to realise that the first half wasn’t good enough. Why have paint stripper in the dressing room, just let Jim loose on them players! In the past you’d have got some rubbish like ‘we’re getting there’, I admire his honesty.

  • We were awful, Accrington at least deserved their consolation goal, if not more. Jim is right to give the players seven shades of abuse. What most of them did on the pitch, particularly in the first half, deserved nothing more. there are too many egos that need to be taken down a peg or two.

  • I thought Buzsaky was bloody awful as well tonight – he gets a high billing but he didn’t show up tonight, but in truth neither did many of his team-mates.

  • Worst first half performance I have seen in a long time, no one in the hoops can be proud of the way they played.
    We did improve in the second but still we gave the ball away to much, It was nice to see the whole ground applaud the Accrington goal well, in truth it was the least they deserved

  • Some were applauding for the right reasons DMD, I think others had their own agenda. It was a bit condescending I thought ‘oh well done you!’ lol

  • Fair play to Stanley for getting stuff in and giving us a scare. Well done ! As for us, hopefully Jim can learn a hell of a lot from a performance like that and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
