Charlton v QPR player ratings

Johnnie Jackson’s injury-time header condemned QPR to a third consecutive defeat as their promotion bid suffered another setback. Here’s how we rated the players in their 1-0 loss at The Valley.

Rob Green: 6
Produced a very good save just before Charlton’s goal but was sometimes unconvincing when dealing with high balls into the area.

Nedum Onuoha: 7
Strong in the tackle and quick to spot danger. Could also have won a penalty after being brought down in the Charlton box.

Richard Dunne: 6
Steady enough for the most part but was well protected by the defenders either side of him. Looked sharper earlier in the season.

Clint Hill: 7
Played the left-of-centre role well in a three-man defence. His positioning was good and he linked up nicely with Armand Traore.

Aaron Hughes: 6
A curious choice as right wing-back, Hughes was neat and tidy enough on the ball but didn’t see much of it as he inevitably struggled to offer a decent attacking outlet.

Tom Carroll: 5
Singled out by some of the frustrated Rangers fans before being substituted. Simply not cut out for the Championship. Is also not helped by a willingness to show for the ball and accept responsibility rather than blend into the background and stay out of the firing line like Jermaine Jenas.

Jermaine Jenas: 5
Experienced former England international who, as has often been the case, offered very little of note in midfield. Going through the motions.

Armand Traore: 7
Had some joy down the left and served up a couple of dangerous crosses. Has done well lately.

Ravel Morrison: 6
Could yet get Rangers back into the frame for automatic promotion after some time to settle in. Showed his quality at times and if he stays motivated will be difficult for Championship defences to cope with. Missed two good chances when he miscued though.

Junior Hoilett: 5
Ineffective before being taken off. Will take the opportunity to run defenders ragged if they allow him to, but lacks the initiative to just go out and make it happen otherwise.

Kevin Doyle: 6
Did a decent job occupying defenders and trying to get others beyond him and into the box, but Rangers were generally disjointed.

Will Keane: 7
Did pretty well after coming on. Showed nice touches and good movement. Rangers looked more dangerous after his introduction.

Modibo Maiga: 5
Unable to make an impact as a substitute. Lacked composure when gifted the ball by Charlton keeper Yohann Thuram late on.

Struggling at the wrong end of the Championsip but full of energy and desire, which enabled them to keep Rangers at bay and then nick a winner – scored by Johnnie Jackson, who was excellent throughout.

Man of the match: Jackson
