With another poor and late defeat for Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road in midweek as we faced off against Rotherham United, it was quickly back to Championship action today in the tie against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Nobody believes our current form is acceptable and manager Steve McClaren’s backers recognise our flaws and the way pressure is rising, and a strong end to the campaign is now needed by all to return the optimism we saw earlier in the campaign.
With Jarrod Bowen opening the scoring for the hosts seven minutes in, and then grabbing his brace before the half time whistle went, it looked like it would be another of those days for travelling fans. Second half there was a spirit on show and Josh Scowen and Tomer Hemed both found the back of the net to take a much needed point from the game.
Speaking to the BBC following …. McClaren said of the showing.
“That was huge. We beat Leeds two weeks ago and I thought that result was a turning point. We have been disappointing in the last three games. After being beaten with the last header of the game on Wednesday, on Thursday it was very difficult to lift the players. Friday they were very good, a good response with lots of energy. We said at half-time we need to win the second half. Once we equalised we could have gone on and won the game. The key was our character. It’s a result that we have to take advantage of in the next eight games.”
