Exclusive – QPR not concerned by Manchester City’s form, says Green

first_imgQueens Park Rangers goalkeeper Rob Green has claimed Manchester City’s indifferent form will not influence the way his team will play when the two sides meet at Loftus Road on Saturday.Despite a derby win against Manchester United last weekend, City’s chances of qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League were dealt a huge blow after a lacklustre 2-1 defeat against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.Although the former England keeper admitted he would rather be playing City while they are suffering a dip in form, he acknowledged QPR must focus on their own game in order to get a positive result.“They’ve [City] obviously not had the results that they would want,” said Green. “We’ll give ourselves a chance this weekend if we go about things in the right way and the right manner, but it’s tough whenever you play them.“Obviously you’d rather be playing them in not such great form than when they’re flying.“It’s [City’s form] not going to affect the way we play. They’ve got their issues and their feelings about games but we need to concentrate and focus on what we need to do.“If we take our eye off ourselves then we’ll start causing our own problems.”The Hoops enjoyed a 2-0 win against Aston Villa and two performed admirably against Liverpool and Chelsea in recent weeks, and Green was full of praise for his team, in particular striker Charlie Austin.“It’s particularly good for him [Austin] because there is always that question mark of forwards who have can up through the divisions that say ‘can he do it at the top level’? In ten games he’s already answered that.“It’s fantastic for him and we’re pleased for him and hopefully he can do the same on Saturday.”last_img read more
