Half-time: Burton Albion 0 QPR 0

first_imgJunior Hoilett hit the bar for QPR in the first half of their Capital One Cup second-round clash at the Pirelli Stadium, where Adel Taarabt was given a starting place.Taarabt, making his first appearance for Rangers since May 2013, dragged a shot wide following good work by Karl Henry.Hoilett then almost put the visitors ahead when his shot from near the edge of the penalty area struck the woodwork.And Hoilett went close again, in spectacular fashion, when he was found by Taarabt and cleverly dinked the ball over a defender only to then shoot over the bar.But Burton caused plenty of problems and Alex MacDonald missed a good chance for the League Two side early on.Rangers keeper Brian Murphy then saved from Dominic Knowles, who should have scored, and produced a fine stop to deny the dangerous MacDonald shortly before the interval.
