Queens Park Rangers suffered a 2-0 defeat to Blackpool on Tuesday night as the London club exited the EFL Cup in the third round of the competition.

R’s boss Steve McClaren made a number of changes from his usual Championship XI, but would still have expected the team to be good enough to overcome a League One side.

However, that was not the case, with QPR losing by two clear goals on the night.

A poor start to the 2018-19 campaign led to severe pressure on the club’s head coach Steve McClaren, but things were looking up earlier this month.

Indeed, the R’s put together a decent run of form to move clear of the bottom three.

The capital outfit suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Norwich City on Saturday, however, and now face a tough trip to Swansea City this weekend looking to avoid a third straight loss.

McClaren might not actually be that fussed deep down that his team have been knocked out of the EFL Cup, but the club’s supporters have been left pretty upset.
