Captain's Comments - QPR

13 March 2015

Before each home game, Eagles skipper Mile Jedinak lifts the lid on the mood in the camp and gives an insight into what's he's been up to ahead of matchday. Here he speaks ahead of the game against Queens Park Rangers.

There's been plenty of action since we faced Arsenal last time out at Selhurst. Despite losing to the Gunners, I thought we did extremely well considering we went a goal down early on. We took it to them and were unfortunate not to take anything from that game but we probably left it a little bit too late to get the first goal, even though Glenn still had  a great chance after we had scored, but I thought the effort was tremendous.

It would have been a great moment if Muzza had bagged the equaliser instead of hitting the post, I think we would have seen the roof come off! However it would have been deserved because we did a lot of good things but that's what it's like playing at this level, sometime you don't get the rub of the green.

A week later we travelled to West Ham United: a tough place to go but one where we've had some good recent results and we knew it was going to be a difficult game. However we put in a performance that we'll remember fondly during this season because we rolled up our sleeves and got down to business and probably could have won by a higher margin.

Glenn scored another two that day and it's fantastic to see him back on the goal trail. It's something we were accustomed to not long ago and it's great to see Muzza in full flight again doing what he does best, putting the ball in the net and bringing everyone into play and I couldn't be happier for him. He's had a little bit of stick from the lads over his first goal in that game, he's claiming it and rightly so, even though it was a massive deflection, but I'm glad it's been given to him.

It was a little bit of a shame to then go and lose to Southampton after the standards we've been setting of late. We wanted to put in a performance down there but we started slowly and despite picking it up in the second half it wasn't to be. We always set ourselves little goals and targets to reach along the way and we should have got something in that game, but we've rubbed that one out and after a nice break we're looking forward to the visit of Queens Park Rangers.

We're itching to get a win after four games without success here recently. You always want to win your home games and we haven't been able to do that of late so it would be great to turn that around. 

It's also a big game against a relegation rival - we've got quite a few of the teams down the bottom of the table still to play and we'll be looking to try and get one over all of them, especially the ones at home, so I'm sure that we'll be making sure that everyone knows the importance of them. It's up to us to execute the gameplan and hopefully if we do so, like we did against Arsenal and West Ham, then that'll tip the result in our favour.
