Chris Samba’s header earned Blackburn Rovers a point which leaves them bottom of the Barclays Premier League as Queens Park Rangers continue to search for their first home win of the season.
Stand-in striker Heidar Helguson’s cross-shot gave Rangers a deserved lead, but Samba’s towering header won Rovers a point.
Steve Kean’s men may have ended a run of two successive defeats, but they now sit rock-bottom of the league, while QPR will be thinking what if after Adel Taarabt shot wide in the second half.
Neil Warnock’s side were unlucky not to earn a second-half penalty, after Michel Salgado’s challenge on Taarabt, but Mark Clattenburg waved away any protests.
Rovers were recently back from a friendly in India, homeland of their new owners Venky’s, to meet and greet the new investors and while the two parties may have exchanged pleasantries, Kean will have been reminded that his side’s form has to change.
Rangers on the other hand, another side who have undergone a recent takeover, bounced back excellently from a thumping at the hands of Fulham, but face the daunting prospect of games against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the coming weeks.
