Mark Warburton believes QPR left Hillsborough with the right result after new signing Macauley Bonne snatched a last-gasp leveller to deny Sheffield Wednesday all three points. 

The Hoops had looked destined for their second defeat of the season after Yoann Barbet had turned Adam Reach's cross into his own net shortly after half-time, as they struggled to convert extended periods of possession into clear-cut chances. 

But Bonne, 24 - who joined QPR from London rivals Charlton on a three-year deal on the eve of the trip to South Yorkshire - pounced deep into injury time to head in Barbet’s cross and seal a second successive point for his new side. 

Following the 1-1 draw, Warburton explained he was pleased with various aspects of the performance which sees the R's sit ninth in the Championship table after four games of the season. 

“I thought we thoroughly deserved the equaliser. That was the least we should have got out of the game,” the 58-year-old said. 

“The wind and rain made it difficult, but I thought we looked a good side for long periods of that game. 

“We played some good football. In the first half, we were organised and we looked threatening and the set-pieces worked really well. 

“They got behind us once, for the goal, and that gave them something to hang on to. But we got behind them five, six or seven times and we never stopped playing. 

“We reacted really well to going behind and there were some big performances from players all over the park who stood up in the conditions.”

Warburton reserved specific praise for exciting attacker Bonne who he hopes can make a difference in the final third as QPR seek a spot in the play-offs for the first time since they were last promoted to the Premier League in 2013/14. 

The impending international break should allow Bonne ample time to settle in his new surroundings, before Rangers’ next outing away at Bournemouth on October 17. 

Warburton added: “I was delighted for Macauley. He’ll help Lyndon [Dykes] as well, who has worked so tirelessly. 

“Lyndon’s been needing someone to run in behind him and Macauley is match fit - he came on and looked threatening and dangerous.”
