Puncheon: It Was A Good Response

28 December 2014

Jason Puncheon felt that whatever had happened on Boxing Day against Southampton the squad always knew that something would be needed from the visit to Loftus Road. 

"We are really pleased with the point coming here, we always knew it was going to be a difficult game and the league position of both clubs meant both sides didn't want to give anything away. I will certainly take the point and one we fully deserved."

The winger struck the woodwork in an away game once again and he was pleased the team performance gave the front players the opportunity to have those kind of chances. 

"Yes it was definitely a close one for us, I haven't seen it again after the game, but it hit the post and got away as far we are concerned. Today though it was about putting in a performance and getting something out of it and that is exactly what we did. It was back to what we got a reputation of doing last season, being tight and not giving anything away but then creating chances when we could and I thought we did that for the majority of the game."

Following the home defeat against Southampton it was important that the team gave a response in a game coming just 48 hours after that match.

"It was a good response to the disappointing result and performance on Boxing Day, most importantly we knew we needed to get something from this game and as a team that is what we have shown we are capable of here against a side who have been scoring in their home games on a regular basis."

In the closing minutes a penalty shout for the visitors was waved away by the official but Jason couldn't give an indication whether the decision was a correct call. 

"Everything just happened so fast in a scramble to try and get the ball, it looked like we were going to have a chance to score and then there was a save followed by a shout for a penalty but to be honest it was manic and I don't know what the correct decision should have been."
