Leeds v QPR player ratings

QPR secured another win – and another clean sheet – with their victory against Leeds maintaining an impressive start to the season. Here’s how we rated the players in their triumph at Elland Road.

Rob Green: 7
Made a couple of excellent interventions and was solid throughout.

Danny Simpson: 7
Created an early chance for Shaun Wright-Phillips and did well defensively too.

Richard Dunne: 7
Is getting better as his fitness improves. Excellent in the air and quicker than he is given credit for.

Nedum Onuoha: 8
A rock at the back for Rangers. Onuoha has started the season brilliantly and his display at Elland Road was crucial to his team’s success.

Hill's goal gave Rangers the points.

Clint Hill: 8
As well as scoring the all-important goal, the R’s skipper was excellent again. He was dependable at the back and willing to get forward when possible.

Gary O’Neil: 5
A somewhat disappointing performance by the recent signing, who gave the ball away a number of times and looked off the pace.

Karl Henry: 6
Did well during an important 15-minute spell in the second half but was shoddy at times in the first, with one mishap almost leading to a Leeds goal.

Joey Barton: 8
Had another fine game in midfield, clearly relishing the stick he was getting from the home fans. His passing was simple and effective and his wickedly delivered free-kick from the left led to Rangers’ goal. Was also denied a perfectly good goal of his own when he netted only to be wrongly adjudged to be offside.

Shaun Wright-Phillips: 7
Another under-performer who has improved of late – no doubt partly because of the difference between Premier League and Championship level. Missed a good chance to score but overall had a decent game and looked dangerous, especially when cutting in from the flank.

Charlie Austin: 6
Worked hard up front but had a frustrating time in front of goal, not least when shooting high and wide when a good chance was created for him.

Andy Johnson: 7
Not much came his way in terms of clear-cut opportunities but his movement caused Leeds problems and he linked up well with the likes of Barton and Wright-Phillips.

Junior Hoilett: 7
Made a welcome return for Rangers following a hamstring problem and looked lively when he came on midway through the second half.
