MARK Warburton admitted QPR didn’t deserve to win after their 2-2 draw with Reading at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Tuesday night.
The R’s twice led, first through Nahki Wells and then through Jordan Hugill, but were pegged back by goals from George Puscas and then Sam Baldock.
Reflecting on the match, Warburton admitted: “We started the game scrappily, poorly and gave the ball away cheaply.
“We played the game in front of Reading and never really hurt them. I think we fell into their traps a little bit. We improved in the second half but never really imposed ourselves on the game, so I don’t think we deserved to lose but I don’t think we deserved to win either.
“It was probably a fair result.”
Wells notched his eighth of the season and Hugill his seventh, and Warburton added: “When you have goalscorers scoring goals it is so important.
“Sometimes it is one of them but we have got the pair of them putting the goals in week-in, week-out. It is tremendous and they are working hard for the team.
“We have to attack as a team and tonight we weren’t really in top gear as a team. We’ve come away with a point, though, and we’ll have to take that.”
Next up for the R’s is Brentford on Monday night, and the gaffer will have to make do without Hugill after he picked up his fifth booking of the season late on against the Royals.
“Brentford are a good football teaming and they got a tremendous result tonight, 3-0 away at Swansea.
“They’re a good side, I’m aware of that so we will have to take care of the football better than we did this evening.
“Jordan’s yellow card at the end is disappointing because we all saw what happened and then he gets booked for some reason.
“That’s football, we have a good squad and we’ll have to use it on Monday.”
