QPR boss Mark Warburton: We need to keep setting targets

Mark Warburton says that QPR need to keep setting targets and keep looking forward.
The R’s beat Reading 4-0 at The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The win means Rangers are on 51 points, just two points off an automatic promotion spot in the Championship with a game in hand.
Warburton said: “The boys deserve a lot of credit. We knew the attacking threat that Reading possessed. They’ve had a tough run of games but they’ve come out from the start very hard, which they did and we had to be strong and solid in the first 10-15 minutes and we did that.
“Then we get a really important goal in a good time. From there we controlled the game. Goals two and three go in. It’s easy for me to say that but good quality deliveries, we attacked the ball really well, we controlled the the game, the pace of the play.

“Second half, we managed the game. Don’t sit deep and try to defend the game. Keep trying to play football. Set pieces worked really well, we got the 4-0. It’s about keeping that clean sheet.

“David Marshall was outstanding, he pulled off a great save at the end there. Everyone contributed. It was a good all round team performance.
“We will be judged on how many times we fill the stadium out. If the fans are enjoying watching their team play, then we’re in a good place. It means we are winning games of football.
“Forget the noise, forget tables. There’s 18 more games – 54 points to play for. That’s a lot of points in the table. We’ve got to set targets and keep moving forwards.

“There’s a lot of games coming up. We’ve got some tough weeks. We’re playing Middlesbrough at home then we’re travelling to Barnsley, then we are playing Millwall on a Tuesday. These are big big games and a lot of mileage into the legs of players.”
