ESPNStar - Magilton slams playmaker Akos
- QPR manager Jim Magilton criticised playmaker Akos Buzsaky after his side stumbled into the third round of the Carling Cup with a 2-1 win at home to Accrington.
- The Hungarian was among several Rangers players who struggled before Hogan Ephraim and Wayne Routledge scored to see off the League Two side, who pulled a goal back through Michael Symes.
- Buzsaky and Rowan Vine recently returned from long-term injuries, and Magilton said: "We've got to give them time and we know they're very good players.
- "Vine was better but 'Buz' gave the ball away cheaply. I wasn't happy about that.
- "I know he's a crowd favourite, but we should pride ourselves on ball retention and there were times he gave it away under no pressure. To be honest, it was embarrassing."
- The R's boss admitted: "We were outplayed in the first half and you have to commend Accrington. They showed some of our lads what enthusiasm is all about.
- "The quality of our play, our ball retention - everything about us - was sloppy in the first half and I expect much more. We had international footballers giving the ball away cheaply."
- Rangers improved after the interval and went ahead in the 68th minute.
- Peter Ramage was released by Adel Taarabt and sent in a right-wing cross which Ephraim controlled nicely before steering his shot beyond keeper Alan Martin and into the corner of the net.
- Rangers' lead was doubled in stoppage time, when Routledge cut in from the left-hand edge of the penalty area and scored with a blistering right-foot shot that bounced in off the underside of the bar.
- There was still time for Accrington to net a consolation goal. Gary Borrowdale failed to clear Robert Grant's free-kick and Symes fired home from eight yards out.
- Rangers were far from impressive, but Magilton dismissed suggestions their form has deteriorated since the season began.
- He said: "I wouldn't get carried away and go in for mass hysteria with talk of deterioration. These games are always tricky and we were much better in the second half.
- "Rome wasn't built in a day. We'll keep going and looking to build something here. The most important thing is that we're in the next round."
- Accrington manager John Coleman praised his players but felt they failed to make the most of an opportunity to cause an upset.
- "I'm proud of them, but the disappointing thing is that the two goals we conceded were avoidable," said Coleman.
- "We switched off, and when you give a lad like Routledge a chance he will take it. To be fair to him, that was a fantastic strike.
- "I do feel it was a chance lost. QPR were edgy. They've got good players and we didn't see the best of them tonight, but credit to our lads.
- "When you play a team from a lower level, as much as you try to guard against complacency it is always there. We knew that and tried to take advantage." ESPN
