QPR midfielder Luke Freeman has called it 'a privilege' to be named captain for his side's draw with Burton Albion.
The former Arsenal and Bristol City man was named skipper for the first time in his career for the stalemate at Loftus Road, but was left frustrated by the way the Brewers set up in the match.
Speaking after the game, he said: "It was frustrating, I think they’ve come here for a point and that’s exactly what they’ve got. It was a frustrating game, it’s hard when they get numbers behind the ball because they’ve not even attempted to try and play the game, they’ve come here with their own game-plan of not losing. It’s tough to break teams down when they do that.
"Last year we probably would have lost that so we have to take the positives, we’ve got a point and we’ve gone up in the league so you’ve just got to forget about it and move on."
Freeman couldn't hide his delight when asked about being named captain for the clash with Burton, saying: "It was the first time (I’ve been captain) in my career so it was a privilege to captain the side.
"Obviously it’s new to me and I’m grateful that the gaffer’s given me the opportunity. Our captain (Nedum Onuoha) is out at the moment and Mass (Luongo) is Ill so I’m more than happy to step in for the team and do what I need to do.
"My game doesn’t really change if I’ve got an armband on, you’ve got to try and lead the game and your position. It’s pleasure but you’ve got to just carry on doing what you’re doing, try and talk to the lads like we always try and do anyway, so not a lot was different, the gameplan doesn’t really change."
