Crystal Palace earned a scoreless draw in the first game since manager Neil Warnock’s sacking, as the Eagles held the Hoops to a stalemate at Loftus Road, reports BBC
Palace lined up with winger Wilfried Zaha playing as a makeshift deep-lying forward, and it saw the Eagles keeping solid in the middle of the park. It also enabled Palace to keep QPR’s in-form striker Charlie Austin quiet, with the England forward having scored in his last five home games before this afternoon’s stalemate.
Crystal Palace came close to going ahead too, with Jason Puncheon hitting the post with an effort. After the break, QPR had the best of the chances, but were met with a resilient Eagles desperate to end their losing run.
