Queens Park Rangers have had a pretty good start to life under new manager Mark Warburton in the 2019/20 Championship campaign, returning four points from an available six and we were looking to keep our unbeaten run going earlier today as we made the trip to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City.
It was the second time this week that we met Lee Johnson’s side following our penalty victory over them in the midweek EFL Cup clash, but this was always going to be a different affair.
And it proved to be sadly, and whilst not quite as exciting, we didn’t make our greater chances overall count and the hosts scored in each half to take a 2-0 victory without response.
There will certainly be disappointment after that, but three games in, knowing full well there should still be improvements in time, four from nine isn’t too bad given the summer upheaval.
Speaking to the BBC following the end of the game, Warburton said of the performance.
“It’s no good having a lot of possession if you are not clinical enough in the final third of the pitch. Possession is irrelevant if you don’t make the most of it. We created chances, without having the necessary edge to our finishing. On numerous occasions we got into good areas without making it count. Two individual errors have cost us, but I felt we were very good for periods of the first half.”
