Moyes rues missed Everton chances in QPR loss

Everton manager David Moyes was left to rue his sides missed chances in today's 1-0 home loss to QPR.

The Toffees struck the bar through Leighton Baines whilst Tim Cahill missed a header from close range as the R's scored the only goal through Tommy Smith just after the half-hour mark.

Moyes says losing was not the outcome his team deserved but he has to deal with the loss of points at home against a newly promoted team.

"The performance probably didn't deserve to lose over the course of the game but we did," said the Scot.

"We are the home team against a newly-promoted team and expected to make the play and score the goals, and we weren't able to do that.

"It wasn't because QPR dominated the game and outplayed us, we had good chances to make better opportunities and didn't do so.

"Tim missed a good one and we were a bit unlucky with Baines' free-kick.

"But if anyone is surprised and disappointed they shouldn't be because we have been saying for a year or two we could do with an injection of wide players and centre-forwards.

"We are disappointed we didn't win because I thought we should have gone on and got a result."
