Result: Queens Park Rangers held by Blackburn Rovers

Queens Park Rangers are held to a goalless draw against Blackburn Rovers at Loftus Road in the Championship.

Queens Park Rangers have been held to a 0-0 draw by Blackburn Rovers at Loftus Road in the Championship.

Charlie Austin had the first chance of the game after three minutes, but his effort was well blocked by Grant Hanley for the visitors.

Tom Cairney showed some clever footwork to escape a challenge but his chip was too weak and Robert Green gathered comfortably after 15 minutes.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto blazed over after breaking forward for the hosts just before the half-hour mark.

Shaun Wright-Phillips was denied on the hour mark when debutant Simon Eastwood somehow kept out his effort after the winger had met Andrew Johnson's cross.

Substitute Niko Krancjar then had an effort that flashed over the bar as the home side pressed for the opening goal.

Austin rose highest from Joey Barton's corner with 10 minutes left but his header glanced wide of the post.

The draw was Rovers' first away clean sheet of the season.
