Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock says his team will learn from their capitulation in their 4-0 loss to Bolton on Saturday.A Daniel Gabbidon own goal and strikes from Gary Cahill, Ivan Klasnic and Fabrice Muamba saw Bolton cruise to the top of the English Premier League at Loftus Road.
Queen's Park Rangers endured a nightmare return to English football's top-flight after a 15-year absence with a 4-0 drubbing from Bolton at Loftus Road.Gary Cahill’s superb curled effort on the stroke of half-time gave Bolton an undeserved lead after QPR dominated possession, but Neil Warnock’s men found themselves three behind after 70 minutes, all through granting their opponents too much space in and around the box.
Much like the start of the first half, QPR resumed the match with promise, but defensive negligence soon took over and Warnock’s men soon fell further behind.
The first of Bolton’s three goals in the second half came through another debutant, Danny Gabbidon as Eagles’ low drive of a free-kick crept through a sea of players before reaching the former West Ham defender, who did little more than prod the ball into his own net.
Two minutes later Bolton were three up. This time Ivan Klasnic, who had been quiet in linking up with Davies throughout the match, was granted too much space in the penalty area, and his effort with help from a Orr deflection made it a mountain to climb for QPR.
The hosts’ misery was further compounded by another negligent display at the back which allowed Klasnic to turn provider, who slipped in
Fabrice Muamba to effortlessly slot home. To add insult to injury for Rangers, Clint Hill was sent off before the final whistle for a swipe at Petrov.
