LONDON (AP) Queens Park Rangers matched the longest winless start to a Premier League season after drawing 1-1 against Aston Villa on Saturday at Loftus Road.
In manager Harry Redknapp's first home match in charge of QPR, the hosts had to fight back from a goal down to earn a point. But Rangers have now failed to win any of their opening 15 league matches - equaling the record set by Swindon in 1993-94.
Villa forward Brett Holman made it 1-0 with a long-range drive in the eighth minu, but QPR midfielder Jamie Mackie's header leveled 10 minutes later.
QPR stayed last in the standings, seven points from 17th-place Sunderland, which has a game in hand and 12-goal superior differential. Villa rose to 16th place, two points above the drop zone.
