The Queens Park Rangers reflected on Sunday's last-gasp loss at Loftus Road.

Injured QPR midfielder Joey Barton has reacted to his side's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool on Twitter.

The Rs missed Barton's physical presence in midfield but produced a much-improved performance against Brendan Rodgers' side at Loftus Road.

But two own goals - one from Richard Dunne and one from Steven Caulker - saw QPR lose 3-2 to the Reds thanks to a last-gasp finish.

And Barton feels his side deserved 'at least a point,' also exploring how the west London club can get back to winning ways.

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy also reacted to the defeat on social media after making his debut for the Rs.

Signed for £6 million from Reading this summer, McCarthy was yet to appear for Harry Redknapp's side but played his first game against Liverpool - hardly the easiest of debuts under the circumstances.

Next up for QPR are Aston Villa, also at Loftus Road, a week on Monday.
