QPR boss McClaren hails Freeman after equaliser

QPR manager Steve McClaren hailed Luke Freeman for leading his side to a 2-2 draw at Rotherham.

​Freeman was the visitors’ dangerman throughout the second half as they left it late to salvage a point at the New York Stadium.​

​Rotherham came out of a frantic opening 15 minutes 2-1 ahead thanks to Will Vaulks’s low strike and Clark Robertson’s first goal for the club.​

​The Millers’ goals came either side of Nahki Wells’ opportunistic strike from close-range following slack defending.​

​Freeman, who signed a new deal with the Londoners recently, nipped in with an injury-time diving header to draw the scores level again. ​

​He was praised for his display by McClaren.​

He said: “He can score goals, he can assist but his enthusiasm is infectious. He is one of our most important players.​

“He has signed again and was not taking a backseat. He has come forward and got us a point.​

“It was disappointing to concede those goals because normally we are not like that.​

“I think we deserved more than a point but credit to Rotherham. They’ve got a great record here and I thought it was a great, end-to-end game.​

“We knew it was going to be difficult and it was but I am proud of the players and their performance. Even if they had lost I would have been proud of that performance.​

“It would have been a travesty not to have come away from here without a point. ​

“The bench made a difference and that is what we need. It is not about the XI but the squad and we need to continue that.”​

Paul Warne’s Rotherham are now seven unbeaten but the manager knows they could be further up the table than 19th.​

​“We have played against a very good team and I think if we had have got a third goal it would have been enough,” he said.​

“Our keeper kept us in it. It’s just hard to take because we conceded so late on.​

“It was a great header but we should defend better than that.​

​“The lads have got to be pleased with themselves because they are taking on the in-form teams.​

“I think we used a lot of emotional energy up on Saturday and we did not look as sharp in our play.​

“If you would have asked me at 60 minutes if I would have taken a point then I possibly would have. ​

“We are hard to beat but it would be nice if we were hard to beat and find wins easy. An extra two points would have set us up lovely.​

“I definitely think QPR deserved a draw because Marek (Rodak) pulled off some quality saves. It’s a pity we didn’t get the win but to take QPR to the 90th odd minute.​

​“The lads never give up and they gave me everything they had but they just were not as good on the ball as I would have liked.​

“Everyone’s a bit low because three points are difficult to come across but a 2-2 when we have not played very well could be a good point at the end of the season.”
