QPR suffered more FA Cup frustration as they were beaten 2-1 by Blackburn on Saturday. Here’s how we rated the Rangers players in the defeat at Loftus Road.
Matt Ingram: 6
Unlucky with both goals, having made good saves from Sam Gallagher on each occasion. The first time the ball bounced in off Joel Lynch, the second fell kindly for Hammersmith-born Liam Feeney to stab in.
James Perch: 5
Not strong enough defensively – he got outpaced in the build up to the first goal – and gave up possession too easily at times, although he did try and get down the flank in the latter stages as Rangers hunted an equaliser.
Nedum Onuoha: 6
Went into battle with another warrior, Danny Graham, and won a few headers. He was probably marginally the best of the back four.
Joel Lynch: 5
Unfortunate scorer of the own goal and attempted to make amends later in the first half with a drilled shot from distance which flew just wide. However, the second goal came about when he appeared to run through treacle trying to recover his position having been involved in an attack at the other end.
Jake Bidwell: 6
At fault for both goals. For the first, his crossfield pass was intercepted and he was then beaten to the resultant cross, and on the second he was caught out by a swift counter. A confident penalty, though, only the fourth goal of his career but well struck.
Pawel Wszolek: 6
Showed flashes of his quality, particularly at the start of either half, but lacked an end product at times and was often well marshalled by Derrick Williams.
Grant Hall: 6
Once again deployed in midfield but struggled with his passing range at times. Did make a fine tackle to deny Feeney late on.
Massimo Luongo: 6
Threw himself into one crunching challenge that briefly roused the troops but he was often too ponderous in possession.
Ben Gladwin: 5
Briefly provided some defensive cover on the left-hand side but couldn’t inject much in the way of creativity. Replaced after 56 minutes by Olamide Shodipo. His performance did not go down well with QPR fans.
Ebere Eze: 7
His professional debut lasted only 17 minutes as he hobbled off. A shame really, as he showed some neat touches and looked to be enjoying himself.
Jamie Mackie: 6
A tireless worker but he is yet to regain his sharpness. Getting more minutes under his belt should help, but he is looking more like an impact player.
Yeni Ngbakoto: 6
Bundled to the floor for the penalty and then flashed a header wide. Still not quite at the races though.
Olamide Shodipo: 7
Looked bright when he came on for Gladwin and injected some enthusiasm and quality but was unable to rouse a comeback.
