McClaren insists three-goal defeat was harsh on QPR

I couldnt believe their first goal – that was their first attack and we concede. It was a poor goal to concede.

But McClaren admitted his teams lack of an end product and their consistent giving away of possession proved costly.

Swansea City enjoyed their biggest and best win of the season at home this afternoon with a convincing 3-0 victory against QPR.

29th September 2018 Club News McClaren: We werent clinical enough

After returning from a three-match ban, Courtney Baker-Richardson was given another chance to prove himself at this level as he started up front with Oli McBurnie playing a deeper role. Bersant Celina returned from injury to start on the left with Naughton, Byers and Carroll also in midfield.

Goals from Barker-Richardson (16), Connor Roberts (76) and Jay Fulton (83) handed the hosts all three points as Rangers returned to west London empty-handed.

And it was Carroll who impressed with the passing numbers as he made 106 successful passes out of 114 attempted – a 93% pass success rate. The likes of van der Hoorn (94%) and Rodon (89%) were also high on the passing accuracy stats as Potter’s side attempted 746 passes in total (87% accuracy) – helping them dominate 64% of the possession.

It was another clean sheet as well for the Swans as QPR rarely troubled goalkeeper Erwin Mulder – that’s now their fifth shutout in 10 League games.

QPR manager Steve McClaren admitted his side weren’t clinical enough at vital moments in their 3-0 loss against Swansea City.

It could have been more than three for the Swans as well as Baker-Richardson could have netted a first-half hattrick having missed a sitter from four yards and there were a couple of chances late on as we enjoyed the freedom of a three-goal advantage.

We are getting punished for mistakes and games are won by sticking the ball in the back of the net and we didnt do that.
