Queens Park Rangers earned a 1-1 draw away at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Queens Park Rangers manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told the club's official website that he was happy with a point against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

The Owls could have taken the lead early in the second half, but Atdhe Nuhiu saw his penalty saved by Alex Smithies following a foul by Nedum Onouha on Gary Hooper.

QPR then stunned Hillsborough by taking the lead through Daniel Tozser, but Nuhiu redeemed himself by scoring a swift equaliser - and that's how the game finished.

Wednesday will have been disappointed to have only taken one point from their last two games against Preston and QPR, but it was clear that R's boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was delighted with the point.

Hasselbaink has still won just twice in his 15 games as QPR boss, but his side have now lost just once in the last eight games after a valiant point at Hillsborough.

After the game, Hasselbaink spoke to the QPR official website, and admitted that he was proud of how strong and stubborn his side were in the face of pressure from Wednesday's dangerous attack.

The Dutchman also raved about Wednesday, suggesting they are a 'very good side', and believes Carlos Carvalhal's men will be in the race for promotion come the end of the season.

"If you come here to Hillsborough – with the form they are in – and get a point, then you are happy," said Hasselbaink. "They've only lost once here all season and rarely drop points, they are a very good side. This is such a difficult place to come and I expect them to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. I like how they play and go about things but we matched them. We were strong, we were stubborn and stood up to the test tonight," he added.
