Queens Park Rangers had a Premier League baptism of fire on Saturday afternoon when they were routed 4-0 by Bolton, although this was not a match that Wanderers dominated and the result would have been quite different if DJ Campbell’s early effort hadn’t been disallowed.

Goals from Cahill, Gabbidon (own goal), Klasnic and Muamba helped Owen Coyle’s team to an emphatic victory, although Neil Warnock refused to be too downbeat about the result, despite Kieron Dyer being stretchered off and Clint Hill being sent off.

Regarding the Dyer injury, he said: “The good news is that we thought he had broken his metatarsal, it was nasty studs on the top of his foot challenge, but the X-rays are looking quite good.

“So we are just crossing our fingers really – we will know in the next 48 hours.”

Warnock also thought that his team were in the ascendancy for most of the game, saying: “I thought we looked on top, we looked like the team that were going to win the game but that is the Premier League.

“There were a lot of pluses and if we can get the two or three players that I think we need now, it looks like there is a takeover happening, I think we should be positive”.
