Championship will be open - Magilton

QPR manager Jim Magilton feels his side matched a team destined to mount a serious promotion challenge after the 1-1 draw at Newcastle. The Magpies needed a second-half equaliser from Marlon Harewood to secure a point after Rangers threatened a shock through Ben Watson's seventh-minute opener. Newcastle remain top of the table while Rangers are just outside the play-offs with a game in hand as another tight Championship promotion race begins to take shape. "I still think it's going to be a division where - we have seen results already this year - it's still going to be a pretty open division. "But if you look at the talent and the ability and the squad-depth of Newcastle, if you finish above them, you will be very close."
