Warburton: It feels like two points dropped

MARK Warburton felt it was two points dropped following his side’s goalless draw with Swansea on Tuesday night.

Rangers created the better of the opportunities while the Swans didn’t register a shot on target throughout the 90 minutes, and Warburton told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am pleased with the point but we do feel we leave here having dropped two.

“You have to be satisfied in the end – to come to a venue like this against a very good opponent, we got a clean sheet, we threatened and we should have been 2-0 up after ten minutes.

“There were pleasing aspects but we do have a feeling of disappointment in the dressing room that we haven’t got all three.”

Jordan Hugill and Bright Osayi-Samuel both went close in the early exchanges and Warburton added: “We had a really good chance after three minutes and we should have been 1-0 up, followed by another very good chance.

“But as long as we’re creating chances the goals will come, I’ve got no doubts about that.

“We were in control for long periods and dominated in terms of chances.”

At the other end of the pitch Rangers kept their first clean sheet in two months, and Warburton admitted: “That’s very pleasing.

“We welcomed back Yoann Barbet tonight who has been out for three months and he gives us that natural left-sided balance, and Conor Masterson has come in and done well in his absence.”

After the point at the Liberty Stadium ended a run of four defeats, the R’s chief added: “I have never doubted the quality in this team.

“I have never, ever doubted for one second how good we can be.

“We have shown it for periods this season but we need that consistency, we need to be more clinical and we need to cut out the individual errors that we have been guilty of.

“But you could see against Swansea we were creating chances, we looked dangerous going forward and there is a real unity about the squad as well.”

We were in control for long periods and dominated in terms of chances.
