Djibril Cissé insisted Queens Park Rangers do not belong in the bottom three after the Hoops were held to a draw by Reading.

Royals defender Kaspars Gorkss scored a spectacular volley after the Hoops failed to properly clear a corner in the 16th minute at Loftus Road.

Esteban Granero came close to immediately equalising with his free-kick drawing a superb save from Alex McCarthy before Cissé finally levelled in the second half with a close-range finish,

Adel Taarabt came close to securing maximum points in the final 10 minutes but Royals keeper McCarthy saved with his feet before Cissé shot narrowly wide in the dying moments of the game.

“We wanted to win this game and we had opportunities to win it,” Cissé told Sky Sports.

“When you have clear chances you’ve got to score and that’s what we are lacking at the moment.

“We’re going to keep trying and keep working.”

He added: “You see the quality we have in the team and we don’t belong to that end of the table.

“No disrespect to the other teams, we don’t belong there.

“But football, it’s on the pitch [which games are decided], not by the big names or talking, we have to deliver every weekend.

“We’re playing good football and we’re creating chances but we don’t score enough. We have to correct that and I’m sure we’ll be fine.”
