Cerny and Gorkss Debut in Killie Defeat...

Kilmarnock 1-0 QPR

Rangers were narrowly beaten at Rugby Park but according to reports, can take heart from a performance in which the R's dominated. Radek Cerny and Kaspers Gorkss made their R's debuts...

Latvian defender, Gorkks, was given special permission to play by Blackpool and this long and drawn out transfer saga is set to come to an end tomorrow! Well, hopefully...

As mentioned, despite dominating proceedings, the R's went down to a Manuel Pascali header in the first half. Iain Dowie told the Official QPR Website;

"I was quite pleased with the display today. We created plenty of opportunities but one moment of madness in the first half cost us. We didn't pick up the runner into the box and paid the price for that.

I wanted greater creativity from the players and I got that. We had 18 shots on goal in the first half alone which is incredible - and four of those were one on ones. We dominated the game and should have won comfortably."

QPR: Cerny, Ramage, Delaney, Mahon (Walton, 76), Hall, (Gorkss, 46) Stewart, Ainsworth (Alberti, 78), Leigertwood (Bolder, 62), Agyemang, Balanta, Ledesma (Rose, 82). Subs: Camp.

Well, two defeats from two games North of the border, one more friendly to go against Chievo Verona at home on Saturday, then it all starts again!!

I can't wait!!

    Hey Kaspers, SVEIKS!

    Sorry Lofty, that is the only Latvian I know. Welcome to Kaspers though and I hope he is a rock back there for the Rs.

    Hi Lofty, glad to see you are in full flow for the new season! Keep up the great work. The 2 north of the border match reports bring home to me the continued absence of that lethal striker from the R's line up. It is no good creating heaps of good chances unless we can convert them!! I thought we would be signing someone exciting for our front line during the close season and am disappointed that we have not. I just hope the new, little known, Italian striker can cut it.
