A Question For O'Neill

11 March 2013 04:04
Martin O'Neill says he was frustrated by a lack of options from the bench at Loftus Road. But WHY did he let Connor Wickham go to Sheff Wed, leaving him with only two strikers!

Martin O'Neill: "James McClean was ill in the build-up to the match and only got out of hospital on the morning of the game having spent two days there.

"It meant we only really had defenders on the bench. And that was an issue because maybe we haven't really got enough goalscorers in our team."

No Premiership manager - in their right mind - would deflate his small squad by letting himself face the last ten games of the season with only two strikers.
