Carlos Corberán's QPR verdict

Carlos Corberán is interviewed after Albion's draw against QPR

Carlos Corberán admitted his side didn’t perform anywhere near well enough to come away with three points from their clash with QPR at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies raced into a two-goal lead on Easter Monday courtesy of close-range finishes from Brandon Thomas-Asante and Semi Ajayi, however, Rangers hit back to take home a share of the spoils. 

Lyndon Dykes headed home in the first half before Chris Martin saw the ball ricochet off his boot and fly into an empty net shortly after the interval. 

The boss was left frustrated once again, stating Albion stopped doing things on Monday which have helped them claim several victories on home soil in 2023.

QPR battled back to earn a point in B71

Carlos said: “It feels like two points dropped. 

“We started really well and we scored the two goals. We had advantages to score more goals and create more chances, but we didn’t use them. 

“All of the things that we have done well to help us achieve results, we didn’t do and we lost what we do well. 

“We conceded quite a lot of clear chances and didn’t manage to create too many ourselves. 

“I don’t think the team is feeling as confident as they once were and I think that is affecting them at the moment. 

“The difficulties are affecting us more than they perhaps should. 

“Some of the things that are happening to us in the season such as losing a lot of important players to injury, we shouldn’t use that as an excuse because we should have enough possibilities to cover and face the difficulty.

“We should have used the time better to make a difference to the result, especially in the first half. 

“We haven't won any of our last four games and it’s important to show something different to be able to win the next game. 

“We cannot think about anything other than the next game now and trying to win that one. That’s the most important thing.”
