Warbo: It was two points dropped




By Alessandro Schiavone

QPR manager Mark Warburton feels his courageous yet toothless side could have come away from Reading’s Madejski Stadium with all three points.

QPR let a 1-0 first-half lead slip through their hands when Yakou Meite cancelled out Lyndon Dykes’ opener 12 minutes into the second-half.

And although Reading were the better side after the interval, Warburton thinks that the share of the spoils is an unfair reflection of QPR’s dominance in the latter of stages of the encounter.

QPR failed to register their first victory over the Royals in five outings as they paid the price for a poor conversion rate.

Warburton could not conceal his frustration after the game and said: "We certainly feel like it was two points dropped. We’re a good team on our day – we’re improving day after day.

"We got the goal before half time and it was a really good one, too. But we came out sloppy in the second half and we then conceded a goal that we just can't concede.

"There was a challenge and we just had to defend it better.

"But then we came back into it, got into it much better and probably dominated the last 20 or so minutes. We then created quite a few chances against a very good Reading team.

"We’re frustrated that we haven’t gone on to win the game. I suppose the overall feeling is one of disappointment."
