Ian Holloway has blasted the lack of intensity of his QPR side after they crashed out of the FA Cup at the hands of League One MK Dons.

Ousseynou Cisse’s classy effort after Josh Scowen’s defensive slip gave Robbie Neilson’s side victory after a battling display at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Robbie Muirhead also hit the post against a lacklustre Rangers, who went closest through Matt Smith’s second-half header, which was saved by Lee Nicholls.

While Holloway could not fault the commitment of his side, he acknowledged he had expected a better overall display from the Hoops.

“It’s a hoodoo for us in the FA Cup – but you can’t make mistakes like we’ve done," said Holloway.

“We shot ourselves in the foot. The level of performance wasn’t anywhere near where I expected it to be.

“It wasn’t good enough – nowhere near. The intensity wasn’t there. There was a lack of communication throughout our performance.

“The effort was there – but the performance was disappointing.

“It’s about setting standards day in, day out, but it wasn’t good enough.

“To be fair, we’ve gifted them the goal. The lad (Cisse) stuck it in the back of the net well enough – but it was basically a comedy of errors.

“But well done to MK Dons. I picked largely the same team, giving only Massimo [Luongo] a rest because I wanted us to build some momentum. But that’s backfired on me.”
