Toon take point at new-look QPR

QPR's new-look side captained by debutant Joey Barton failed to convert a host of chances as they had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Newcastle.

QPR dominated the first half of their Premier League clash at Loftus Road and would have been 2-0 up had it not been for goal-line clearances from Steven Taylor and Danny Simpson, who denied Shaun Wright-Phillips and Jay Bothroyd respectively.

Wright-Phillips was the most impressive of the hosts' six new players but he failed to connect with a gilt-edged chance in the second half when free in the box and Neil Warnock's men were only able to take a point despite their dominance.
