Albion made it three draws on the bounce after a disciplined 0-0 with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road Wednesaday night (September 18).

The point stretches the Seagulls’ unbeaten run to five games while QPR move top of the Championship as a result of their share of the spoils.

Former Albion favourite Bobby Zamora was missing from the Rs’ squad through injury, but the man who lead the line, Charlie Austin, had his fair share of chances.

The striker’s close range header was palmed away by an in-form Tomasz Kuszczak before Austin fluffed his lines from a few yards from goal to squander a brilliant chance for the hosts.

Albion’s Polish keeper also denied a whipped Joey Barton free kick in the second half, tipping it away from the top corner.

Oscar Garcia handed Ashley Barnes the role of spearheading his side but chances were few and far between for the Seasiders and it was Keith Andrews who came the closest. His fizzed effort from distance clipped an opponent and flashed just wide of the post.

Rohan Ince closed the game with a header that ballooned into the raucous travelling support homed in the top tier of Loftus Road’s School End.
