Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Warburton was left downcast after his QPR side fell to a 2-1 derby-defeat at Fulham to lose their third in their last four four.

An Aboubakar Kamara double turned things round after Jordan Hugill had given Rangers an early lead at Craven Cottage.

But Warburton believes that, in a game settled by fine margins, the Rs did enough to deserve a share of the spoils.

"It's very frustrating to be leaving with nothing,” he told QPR's official website.

“We know about the quality in the Fulham squad, but we had to be brave and you saw us being brave.

"We got the early goal, created chances, matched a high-quality team in possession and been very, very good - but we've lost 2-1.

"In that first period we could have been two or three up. Had we left with a point, I'd have been frustrated."

The result leaves Warburton’s side – who have now conceded the joint-second most goals in the division – 12th in the Championship as they maintain the unenviable record of being the only club in England’s top four divisions who are yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

And their leaky defence is right at the top of Warburton’s list of concerns as Rangers prepare to host Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night.

“We’ve given soft goals away all season,” he admitted, “but mistakes are not just the obvious ones you see.

“It’s also us being loose in front of goal and not taking our chances.

“It’s not about one player – our keeper (Joe Lumley) made some great saves. We’ve made mistakes all over the park, all teams do, and we got punished.

“We’ve got to get our heads down, work hard and be ready for Wednesday night.”
