The Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill has said that he is extremely disappointed with his side’s inability to take advantage of the home match against the bottom team in the Premier league – QPR. Sunderland took on QPR at the stadium of light looking to win only their third match of the season.
However, they could not find the back of the net once again after they finished the match 0-0. It has been a dismal start to the new season for Sunderland, as they have found it extremely hard to score goals. Without the goals from the summer signing Stephen Fletcher, they would easily be in the relegation zone. As it is, they are just a few points about the relegation zone.
Martin O’Neill could not hide his frustration after the 0-0 draw in which Stephen Fletcher had come the closest to give Sunderland the lead in the match. Prior to the match, there were rumours that the manager will offer his resignation after failing to inspire the team to reach the heights of last season. He helped them stay in the Premier league after a run of five wins in six matches following his arrival after January. This time around, he has been able to get just two wins in the last 13 matches.
“I was hoping we could win the game. I know that Queens Park Rangers would be buoyed obviously by the appointment of Harry Redknapp. But I thought we could create enough tonight to win the game. This has been a tough old season for us obviously. I think there were plenty expecting that too. It was a rather frustrating evening, I think frustration would sum it up,” said O’Neill. QPR were extremely buoyant in the match, as they played under the new manager Harry Redknapp for the first time.
