QPR boss Mark Hughes was left rueing his side's profligacy after seeing their wait for a Barclays Premier League win this season extended to 11 games with a 1-0 defeat at Stoke.
The Rs have sunk back to the bottom of the table following a contest in which they were the better side for long periods, only to be undone by Charlie Adam's 52nd-minute strike. Adel Taarabt wastefully chipped over for the visitors and was unable to convert further opportunities after Adam's goal, while Asmir Begovic did well to keep out an Esteban Granero effort.
"We've had this conversation too many times after games unfortunately," Hughes said. "We played well as the away side - I thought it was a decent away performance. We restricted Stoke to very few chances. In general play I thought we were the dominant team in terms of how we wanted to get the ball down and play."
