QPR boss Warburton slams his side for being too loose at the back at Peterborough

Mark Warburton was disappointed that QPR didn’t at least come away with a point in their 2-1 defeat against Peterborough on Saturday.

Siriki Dembele’s last minute winner gave Posh all three points after Ilias Chair had initially given the R’s the lead.

Warburton said: “When we did get the ball out wide the quality wasn’t good enough, especially in the first half. We needed to be better in that respect.

“We got the goal and believe it or not, we’d worked on that in training as we felt there was a weakness there – but then we concede a really soft goal.

“They had two or three really good chances before they scored. We didn’t take care of the football and we were loose at times at the back.

“We didn’t do enough to win the game, it’s as simple as that. But if that’s the case, be frustrated and come away with a point. We need to manage the game and we didn’t do that. To lose our shape at the end was not acceptable by us.

“We were naive and we let ourselves down. We’ve given away three valuable points this afternoon. We knew Peterborough would be tough to beat, especially at home, and we talked about the late goals they’ve scored. That’s the frustrating thing. When we play well we say so, but we let ourselves down today.”
