Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Warburton felt his side did a good job in containing Rovers to help them run out convincing winners on Saturday.

The hosts were worthy 4-2 victors at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium with Nahki Wells, Ebere Eze, Bright Osayi-Samuel and Jordan Hugill getting their goals.

Rovers did keep themselves in touch at one point through Bradley Dack’s penalty with Adam Armstrong’s late strike little more than a consolation on a day to forget for Mowbray and his players.

Warburton was keen to praise the job his side had done in limiting the visitors, a team he has plenty of admiration for.

"I thought we respected Blackburn, they're a very good team with Stewart Downing, Danny Graham, Adam Armstrong's pace on the flanks, the width - they're a good team,” the QPR boss said.

"We contained them, we grew into the game and we deserved the victory.

"We got back in the early hours of Thursday morning so for the boys to give that effort and work rate is all credit to them.

"We were a little bit sloppy at the end and that group of players will want to work harder and keep on getting better and better.

"I was more frustrated with the second goal they scored, we were just sloppy and complacent and we can't do that and the players will demand higher than that."

Rovers’ two goals mean QPR are still yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

Dack’s penalty, after a foul by Yoann Barbet, seemingly gave the visitors a way back into the game but the two-goal advantage was quickly restored as Warburton’s side cruised to a welcome three points after back-to-back defeats.

"You want to keep a clean sheet, of course you do,” he told the Brent and Kilburn Times.  

"It's easy for people behind keyboards to jump on and go 'oh Yoann Barbet', well he's the last line of defence.

"If he doesn't make that tackle they ask 'why hasn't he tried to tackle him?'

"We missed the tackle ahead, we missed the second tackle ahead, didn't maintain our shape and it was unfortunate with the last ditch tackle.

"Yoann Barbet has been outstanding and will continue to get better and better."
