It was a horrible game of football to watch as the elements made playing near impossible to perform, but QPR still managed to get a 1-1 draw against Bolton Wanderers.

It wasn't a classic, but there was no shortage of talking point in a scrappy game at the Macron Stadium.

The rain and swirling wind was torrential all afternoon, and to be honest if the game had kicked off half an hour later it may have been abandoned.

The Macron Stadium pitch did remarkably well to hold as much water as it did, but it did stop the game from flowing, meaning both teams had to go direct in an attempt to create chances.

It certainly wasn't a game for the purists, and weather will no doubt be the main reason for it being remembered at all.

Ryan Manning

Despite a bright opening, QPR found themselves 1-0 down in the first half, leading to a tactical tweak from Ian Holloway in the 38th minute.

Unfortunately for Manning, this meant he was brought off in favour of Conor Washington in an attempt to create more chances.

QPR midfielder Ryan Manning

The youngster certainly wasn't any worse than any other QPR player, and hopefully the decision to bring him off early on won't have an impact on his confidence.

Karl Henry

The midfielder looked solid in the engine room for Bolton, playing alongside goalscorer Darren Pratley.

He put himself about, and from speaking to those around Bolton, he's been one of their best players in recent weeks.

It was quite a battle in midfield, but Henry certainly showed his experience in a difficult game.

Seven winless games

QPR created enough chances to win the game, but once again came away with just a point.

That makes it seven consecutive games without a win in the league, meaning the club have come crashing back down to earth after an excellent start to the campaign.

A manager under pressure?

Ian Holloway has been remarkably upbeat in recent weeks despite not picking up any wins; but post-match he was beginning to show some cracks.

Speculation in the national press after the Sunderland game suggested he was a game away from being sacked, something which by all accounts was never the case.

However when asked about the pressure on his team he did give a rather prickly response, perhaps showing that he is feeling the pressure of such a run.

Personally, I don't believe Ollie is likely to, or even deserves to have his job at threat at this stage of the season, with QPR sitting in a position many expected of them them.

The long-term project which he is leading at the club is still in it's early stages, and although form is currently a concern, I believe it's far too early to press the panic button.

It will however be interesting to see how the team, and Holloway himself respond next week, with two difficult home games against Wolves and Sheffield United on the horizon.
