QPR manager Mark Warburton has predicted Coventry City will “cause sides a lot of problems” this season.
The Sky Blues beat QPR 3-2 to gain their first points back in the Championship.
QPR took the lead four minutes before half-time through a Lyndon Dykes penalty, but Coventry hit straight back with a Matty Godden header three minutes later.
Second half goals from Callum O’Hare and Kyle McFadzean were enough to give the home side the points, despite a Yoann Barbet response having drawn the Hoops level at 2-2 before McFadzean headed in the winner.
Warburton said: “Coventry are a good team, they will cause sides a lot of problems this year because promoted teams know how to play and win together.
“We were very good in the first half, but we kept letting them in and we were punished for it and it buoyed them when we didn’t get the rewards.
“To let them get back in it is really poor after playing so well in the first half.
“They dropped deeper and we didn’t match the intensity of the first 15 minutes of the second half.
“But then we got equal, with the second goal we felt we should have got something from the game then.”
