In England's Championship, Geoff Cameron's QPR lost 2-0 at home to Preston North End. QPR gave up penalties in the 24th and 60th minutes.
"It was a poor game," QPR manager Mark Warburton said. “I think both keepers had one save to make, we gave away two really soft penalties and we never really got going. We showed a lack of quality and didn’t do enough to win a game of football. We lacked any real quality all over the pitch to be honest. We moved the ball okay at times but we never really hurt them."

"It's a bit of a shame!," Marsch said. "I thought that we were better and deserved to win, even if it probably wasn't our best performance. I thought that we were good though, and we had lots of chances when we were 2-1 up. It wasn't enough though in the end."
