Cape Town - A 2-1 victory at Loftus Road on Wednesday left Arsenal's manager relieved but for Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey, a boyhood Arsenal fan, there was little satisfaction from the evening.
"I'm just sick for the players today, sick for the way that
we've not got anything out of the game," he said.
"The players know that we are in the situation now because we
haven't maximised our abilities, and they know that and are trying to address
"What happens is you end up where you are now because
probably we've been relying too much on Charlie's goal efforts."
Reflecting on images of his friend and former Tottenham colleague
Tim Sherwood rejoicing after a crucial win as manager of relegation rivals
Aston Villa last night, Ramsey added: "There's nothing worse than seeing
your rivals celebrating.
"Hopefully it will be us celebrating at the weekend, but we
really can't focus on the other teams."
QPR are currently in the relegation zone, three points adrift of safety but do have a game in hand of their relegation rivals.
