AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was disappointed with the scoreline following a good showing away at Premier League hopefuls Queens Park Rangers.
The Cherries made a number of changes following the draw at home to Brighton on Saturday, with record signing Tokelo Rantie dropping to the bench and Andrew Surman replacing him to see a switch from 4-4-2 to 4-5-1.
Shaun MacDonald also came into the midfield to replace Eunan O'Kane, while Marc Pugh returned to replace Ryan Fraser.
With QPR playing 4-4-2 it gave the Cherries an extra man in midfield and the away side often dominated the possession, with QPR forced onto the back foot and playing on the counter.
The difference in this game however came from the quality that Harry Redknapp had at his disposal in the final thirds.
Whilst the former England managerial candidate could name Internationals with plenty of Premier League experience throughout the team, Eddie Howe's back four was the same that won promotion from the third tier of English football last season.
During the first half the vital opener came via £4million forward Charlie Austin, who enjoyed scoring against his former manager and should have been club.
During the second half the game once again saw plenty of possession and good football from the Cherries, but failing to break down and create many chances against an experience QPR line up, eventually succumbing to two more goals arguably against the run of play.
Howe told BBC Radio Solent...
'It was very much a harsh scoreline. We had some really good opportunities that we could have done better with.
'Bar one header he tipped over earlier in the game, I don't really remember Lee Camp having to do anything.
'To concede three in that type of performance is hugely disappointing.'
