O'Neill admitted that he thought his team would have too much for the visitors despite the appointment of Harry Redknapp, and was "frustrated" to see them held to a 0-0 draw.

"I was hoping we could win the game. I know that Queens Park Rangers would be buoyed obviously by the appointment of Harry Redknapp," he said.

"But I thought we could create enough tonight to win the game.

"This has been a tough old season for us obviously. I think there were plenty expecting that too. Outside the top seven or eight teams you can either be looking up the league table or over your shoulder.

"It was a rather frustrating evening, I think frustration would sum it up."

Lee Cattermole, who shook off a knee injury to start, departed with just seven minutes played having damaged the other knee in a 50-50 challenge with Samba Diakite.

O'Neill confirmed: "It was his other knee that he hurt, funnily enough, in the block challenge and as we speak now, he's in a lot of pain, so that would be a blow to us if that was the case.

"It seemed as if it was the same knee - I thought immediately that was the case - but it's not, it's his other knee."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
