O'Neill: 'We could have scored at any stage'

O'Neill: 'We could have scored at any stage'

Sunderland were left to rue another missed opportunity as they drew 0-0 with bottom-of-the-league QPR at home.

Bouyed by the appointment of new boss Harry Redknapp, the R's secured an invaluable away point and clean sheet, stopping the rot somewhat in the process.

Both sides had chances in a lively encounter but neither side could make the breakthrough - a reflection perhaps of the fragile confidence levels at both clubs.

Speaking afterwards to safc.com O'Neill delivered his verdict:

"It was a difficult evening.

"I really felt that at any given stage we could have scored in the game, but it wasn`t to be," contended O'Neill.

The Ulsterman continued by mentioning the critical 'C' word:

"Confidence is a big thing, we`ve been talking about it for a while now, but we`ll come through it."

Sunderland are away to Norwich City next Sunday.

J would rather refute that suggestion. As a QPR fan I thought we let our guard slip once in the game in the first half. Other than that Sunderland were relatively ineffective, nothing really clear cut, plenty of efforts from distance. We by comparison had a couple more opportunities, Mackie, Taarabt, Cissé etc, but nothing much more than that. We defended well and apart from the odd chance, gave you relatively little.

Got to agree with you to be perfectly honest, Boxer. Streamed the game and the best chances fell your way. I would certainly have said you caused more threat than us, which is a worry.

Streamed the game also and thought apart from 2 good saves from both QPR goalkeepers , Sunderland produced very litle threat. A little chip from Mackie , Taraabts right foot instead of left and that would have sealed it. SWP at the death should have done better. Cisse will come good against Villa.

Cisse certainly getting in the right positions it just wasn't happening for him.
