Mark Warburton was left pondering how his QPR side did not pick up their second win of the season, feeling that Rangers “dropped two points” in their 1-1 stalemate with Huddersfield Town.

A late equaliser from Grant Hall helped Rangers to fourth in the Championship and preserved their unbeaten start after two games.

But in spite of their form, Rs boss Warburton was not the least bit satisfied with the result following his team’s sharp second half display at the newly named Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

“We feel we have dropped two points today and I say that with full respect to Huddersfield,” Warburton told the club’s official website. “Penalty aside, Joe [Lumley] hasn’t had a save to make.

“To go 1-0 down early in the second half, we had to change things and I was pleased with the reaction of the squad because it shows character.”

“In the second half I felt we were very, very good and looked dominant for long, long periods but we just didn’t get our final rewards.

“There will be games where we play badly and nick a point, and I will stand here afterwards and tell you ‘we were lucky today,’ because you have to be honest.

“But today I felt we were the dominant team – but we should be at home. We should pose people real problems at home, we should excite the crowd, get the fans behind us and play the game how we want it to be played.”

After a goalless first half, it was the Terriers who broke the deadlock shortly after the restart, with Karlan Grant converting from the spot after substitute Elias Kachunga was brought down by Yoann Barbet.

Rangers responded to going behind by peppering Kamil Grabara’s goal, forcing a plethora saves from the Polish keeper on loan from Liverpool.

Ilias Chair, along with Eberechi Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel were among those a constant threat to Huddersfield’s delicate lead.

And in the 83rd minute, the Hoops saw their persistence finally pay off as captain Hall headed home to equalise with seven minutes to play.

Taking a step back from the frustrations of perceived missed opportunities, Warburton believes that his side showed the requisite steel to succeed in a tough division, with a long campaign ahead.

“It’s all well and good doing the right things going forward but you have to do the messy stuff as well and he showed his character, as did the team,” he continued.

“We felt we dropped two points but if you asked us at the start of the season if we would be happy with four points from Stoke away and Huddersfield at home, I think 99% would take it.”
