Queens Park Rangers' season has taken a turn for the worse after losing 2-0 at home to Preston North End in the Sky Bet Championship. The defeat is the second in succession for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's side, and puts a major dent in QPR's aspirations of promotion from the Championship. 

While it's still very early in the season, QPR will feel these are points dropped. The visitors recorded their first Championship victory of the season with goals from Jermaine Beckford and an own goal from Nedum Onuoha. Before the QPR game Simon Grayson's Preston side had been beaten in all three of their opening league matches.

The BBC reported QPR manager Hasselbaink saying after the game: "We looked second best and couldn't get going. You have to give Preston credit. They did well, put us on the back foot and we looked flat.

"As as a group, we expected more and wanted more but couldn't deliver. We didn't look like us. Individual errors cost us."

Following two wins in their opening two games, QPR have now lost two consecutive games, after defeats to Barnsley and now Preston. QPR who had 56% of the possession, and 10 shots on goal with 3 on target, failed to make any of that possession and pressure count.

QPR will now look to the away game at Wigan Athletic on August 27th as they aim to get their season back-on-track.
