Burnley   0 - 0   QPR

Burnley 0-0 QPR

Burnley 0-0 QPR

Burnley's manager-in-waiting Eddie Howe watched the Clarets hold Championship leaders QPR to a goalless draw in a drab game at Turf Moor.

Chances were few and far between in a match attended by Howe, who has agreed to join Burnley from Bournemouth.

Clarets keeper Lee Grant made fine stops from Shaun Derry and Adel Taarabt, while Rob Hulse missed from close range as Rangers dominated.

Burnley's Clarke Carlisle made two fine late blocks as the hosts held on.

Howe is set to become Clarets boss after confirming he is leaving his position at Bournemouth, revealing after Friday night's 2-1 League One defeat at Colchester that the match was his last in charge of the Cherries.

He is poised to be confirmed as successor to Brian Laws after Stuart Gray presided over his final game as caretaker boss.

Rangers bossed the first half and fashioned the first goalscoring opportunity when Derry's 25-yard strike was brilliantly tipped around the post by Grant.

Taarabt then tried his luck with an ambitious low drive from a tight angle before seeing a 12-yard shot well saved by Grant.

A Tyrone Mears free-kick that flew harmlessly over the crossbar from 20 yards was Burnley's best effort of the opening period.

Rangers threatened again just after the break when Taarabt hit a 30-yard free-kick just wide of the target, before Rangers striker Hulse hit a right-foot shot over the bar from six yards.

However, genuine goalscoring opportunities were scarce in wet weather conditions that made free-flowing football difficult.

With 19 minutes remaining, Tommy Smith engineered the space to hit a 12-yard strike which drew a fine block by defender Carlisle. Petter Vaagan Moen went close for Rangers late on but Carlisle produced another fine block to avert the danger.
