Arveladze looks ahead to QPR

18 February 2022

Shota Arveladze is confident that his players will rediscover their goalscoring touch ahead of this weekend’s trip to Queens Park Rangers.

The Tigers ended a run of three consecutive defeats in the Championship by picking up a hard-fought point in the goalless draw against Sheffield United.  

Around 2,000 away supporters were in attendance to witness the battling display from the Tigers, and they could even have been celebrating a victory with chances late on for Ryan Longman and Tom Eaves.  

“We’re all happy with the boys and the effort they are putting in,” said Arveladze.  

“We know this is a very tough run and how difficult the games are. The boys are doing fantastically well and defended well (against Sheffield United). 

“They created some good chances. We’re working on taking at least one out of three or four of our chances because in games against top sides, they don’t give you chances easily, so we have to score.

“We are creating three, four or five really good, clear chances. We just need to improve our final touch. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do that as soon as possible in the next few games.” 

It does not get any easier for the Tigers as they prepare to face another promotion challenger in the form of Queens Park Rangers.  

Mark Warburton will be looking for a response from his side at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium after suffering back-to-back defeats against Barnsley and Millwall, and Arveladze is expecting another tough game.  

“I wouldn’t say they’re that similar to Sheffield United but they’re a very good, organised team,” added Arveladze.  

“They play more football and like to hold onto the ball more. I never played there myself but the pitch is a bit smaller. We’re going to look at where we can hurt them and look forward to the game.”
