New-look QPR held by Newcastle

Published Add your comment

A new-look QPR side, captained by debutant Joey Barton, failed to convert a host of chances as they were made to settle for a goalless draw against Newcastle at Loftus Road.

QPR dominated the first half and would have been 2-0 up had it not been for goal-line clearances from Steven Taylor and Danny Simpson, who denied Shaun Wright-Phillips and Jay Bothroyd respectively.

Wright-Phillips was the most impressive of the R's six new players but he failed to connect with a gilt-edged chance in the second half when free in the box, and Neil Warnock's men were only able to take a point despite their dominance.
