Mark Hughes believes QPR would have beaten Wolves had it not been for Djibril Cisse's sending off.
It had looked like the west Londoners would secure the three points after seeing debutant Bobby Zamora break the deadlock in a first half they dominated. The England international's fledgling partnership with Cisse looked promising, but it only lasted 34 minutes after the latter was sent off for retaliating to a Roger Johnson challenge.
Wolves went on to win 2-1 thanks to goals from Matt Jarvis and Kevin Doyle, and Hughes said: "If we had 11 v 11 I feel very confident in saying we would have won the game quite comfortably. But unfortunately we weren't able to keep 11 on the pitch and we conceded two poor goals in terms of what we could have done prior to the goals going in."
