Queens Park Rangers Story: March

After a successful February, we had another 5 games in March, all difficult ones. Despite this, I set us a target to be unbeaten, which would be no easy task. Thankfully, no injury problems occured, and all my players were fit and ready to go. Lets move on to the results:

Birmingham City 1-1 Queens Park Rangers (Championship)
Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Charlton Athletic (Championship)
Watford 0-2 Queens Park Rangers (Championship)
Sheffield Wednesday 0-2 Queens Park Rangers (Championship)
Queens Park Rangers 0-0 Doncaster Rovers (Championship)

Slightly worse than February, but still an impressive month, a good draw against fellow play-0ff challengers Birmingham, plus 2 away wins over Watford and Sheffield Wednesday. The only disappointment was the 0-0 draw with Doncaster, but we could afford a blip seeing as we were in 5th place, 7 points above 7th and only 3 points away from 4th placed Cardiff. We also had survived the month unbeaten, which stretches our run to 12 in all compititions; 13 in the Championship. Now quickly on to top performers. Top scorer for March was Sebastian Abreu with 3 out of 5, with second place being tied for 4 players, all on 1. A little disappointing how Kevin Doyle couldn't translate his February form into March, but oh well. Top assister was Franco Zuculini, with 4 out of 5 games, and 3 players tied on 1. It is good that we have a variety of scorers and assisters, but it would be nice to have that one player that can be relied on to score/assist. Currently, only Sebastian Abreu has scored in each month, and he is pushing 32, so he cannot be kept around much longer. Hopefully Doyle/Vine can step up to the plate in the coming months.

Anyway, thanks for reading, April coming up soon!
