QPR's Derby Loss - Dowie's Post-Match Comments

Iain Dowie failed to his disappointment, as the R's slipped to their first home defeat of the campaign.
Second half goals from Martin Albrechtsen and Emanuel Villa handed Derby County victory in W12, on an afternoon when Dowie's men failed to fire following their midweek victory against Aston Villa in the Carling Cup.
"We fell asleep twice on set-pieces and that's very unlike us," Dowie told www.qpr.co.uk.
"We had two crazy moments and its cost us today.
"Our passing wasn't anywhere near good enough. We gave it away far too often. They won far more second balls we did.
"These days are going to happen. It's a 46 rung ladder and we've slipped up on one of the steps.
"Good luck to them, they deserved the victory and we've got to move on."
Dowie is demanding a response from his side on Tuesday night, when Blackpool come to town.
"We had chances today and didn't take them, but we've got the chance to bounce back against Blackpool on Tuesday and we need to do that," he said.
"The Championship is good in that way, because the matches come so thick and fast. But we weren't anywhere near good enough today and we've got to respond." QPR
