A good point but it should have been three

Owen Coyle felt Rovers deserved more than the point they claimed in the 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

After creating a host of chances at Loftus Road, it was the hosts who scored against the run of play when Tjaronn Chery scored direct from a free-kick on 65 minutes.

But Rovers' response was impressive, getting back on level terms just nine minutes later when Sam Gallagher headed home Corry Evans' centre to ensure a point would be heading back to Lancashire.

"It is a hard-fought point, but I've got to say on the balance of the game we should be leaving with three points," said Coyle.

"We were terrific today, we came up against a good Queens Park Rangers side and limited them to very few chances. But the goal they scored was a wonder free-kick, although one that we didn't think should have been awarded.

"So we were punished after what was our best spell in the game with chances cleared off the line, we had them under constant pressure and I've got to say I thought we were terrific from start to finish.

"I was delighted with how we went about it, the amount of chances we created away from home.

"We leave with a point but it should have been three."
