Queens Park Rangers duo Charlie Austin and Joey Barton were disappointed to lose to Swansea City last night.
Queens Park Rangers were left deflated last night, as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
The R's were second best for much of the match, but had looked as if they may escape with a point before Ki Sung-Yeung and Wayne Routledge scored late on to end their hopes.
It was a disappointing defeat for QPR, who are still struggling to put a run of results together and are in a precarious position as a result.
At the moment Harry Redknapp's side are in the bottom-three after only collecting 11 points from their first 14 games.
Their defeat last night could have been heavier, too, if it wasn't for the heroics of Rob Green in goal.
The England international appeared to be a one-man defence at times, making a string of sensational saves, and Joey Barton admitted on Twitter that his side were well beaten by Gary Monk's men.
Not good enough tonight. Beaten by the better team. Dust ourselves off, go again Saturday against Burnley at our place. #QPR— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) December 2, 2014
Swansea have quietly climbed into contention for a European spot and have started the season well, but the R's would have been disappointed to pose so little threat to their defence.
Austin's view, though, was still rather different to his teammate's and he felt that, after holding on for so long, his team deserved to claim something from the match.
Thought we were unlucky tonight. Everyone worked hard, but wasn't to be. We move on to Saturday now. http://t.co/nXpyqbMePy— Charlie Austin (@chazaustin9) December 3, 2014
QPR's game against Burnley this Saturday already looks like a match which could define which way their season goes.
The Clarets have proven tough to beat in recent times, but Redknapp and his team will know that this is the sort of match they will have to win if they are to beat the drop.
