Mark Warburton believes his Queens Park Rangers side were good value for a point as they played out a 0-0 draw with AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. 

The stalemate on the south coast made it three consecutive league draws for the Rs, as they find themselves without a victory since the opening day of the season. 

Both sides had chances to win the tightly contested affair, with Macauley Bonne denied by Asmir Begovic in the first half, before Dominic Solanke fired wide for the hosts at the other end.  

And the fighting spirit shown by the Hoops impressed Warburton, as they went toe to toe with one of the early favourites for promotion from the second tier. 

“We had to impose ourselves and negate the strengths of your opponent and then impose your threats on them. I thought we did that,” the QPR boss said. 

“We more than deserved a point, first half especially we were very good. 

“We had good intensity and restricted them to one chance when Solanke got on the wrong side of us but then put it just past the post. 

"That apart, Seny Dieng has not really had a save to make. We looked very comfortable and created chance after chance. We should have been at least one goal ahead at half-time. 

"We knew that they would respond going into the second half, but again we responded and made some attacking substitutions. We took the game to them.” 

The Rs now turn their attention to Preston North End, who will be the visitors to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Wednesday, with Alex Neil’s side also only tasting victory once this campaign. 

Warburton will be assessing Luke Amos before the midweek clash after the midfielder left the field with an injury at the weekend, while striker Lyndon Dykes missed Saturday’s game after picking up a knock while on international duty with Scotland. 

Dykes has netted twice in his four league games this season, and the striker will be looking to regain his place back in the starting lineup against North End, although his manager admits it isn’t a foregone conclusion. 

"He had a minor injury and no more than that following the games,” Warburton said. “It was a big loss - but Macauley Bonne deserves enormous credit for the shift he put in for 90 minutes. I was delighted with his contribution."
