QPR boss Michael Beale says his side need to take their chances

After QPR lost 1-0 to Blackpool at Loftus Road, Michael Beale was frustrated with his team’s inability to take chances.
The west Londoners were unable to build on goalkeeper Seny Dieng’s late equalizer against Sunderland.
The R’s got off to a fast start and nearly took the lead when Tyler Roberts stung Grimshaw’s palms with a low strike.
QPR should have been ahead just before the half-hour mark when Stefan Johansen pounced on a loose ball to set up Lyndon Dykes, but his weak effort was saved.
If you don’t take your chances, you get punished – and that’s exactly what happened when Josh Bowler found space in the Rangers penalty area and curled an effort straight into the top-left corner.
After the break, new signing Ethan Laird combined well with Leeds loanee Roberts, who forced another good save from Grimshaw.
With 15 minutes remaining, the visitors could have gone ahead 2-0, but Laird was there to save the day.
In the final seconds, Sinclair Armstrong headed over Albert Adomah’s delivery.
“We should be two or three up before we go down 1-0,” Beale said. Then we give up at the worst possible time, right before halftime.” We talked about it and said that if we kept playing, chances would come, and I believe we did. “We threw a lot of energy at it in the second half and were a little nervous at times.” We were a little sloppy in possession because we were working so hard, and the goal didn’t come.” We would have the advantage if we could score early in the second half. We didn’t score, but we had some fantastic chances early in the game. Ethan flashes one across the six-yard line, and we have to score right away. Then he pulls one back to Lyndon, and I believe we need to score there as well.”
