QPR v Reading player ratings

QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo

QPR drew 1-1 with Reading at Loftus Road in their penultimate home match of the season. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player.

Matt Ingram: 8
An excellent home debut for the young keeper, who looked confident and produced a fine second-half save to push away Oliver Norwood’s free-kick.

James Perch: 5
Having recently enjoyed a good run of form at left-back, Perch was again below par at right-back – a position he has looked unconvincing in for much of the season.

Nedum Onuoha: 6
A mixed performance from the Rangers captain, who won a number of challenges and brought the ball out of defence on a couple of occasions, but was very sloppy on the ball at times.

Grant Hall: 7
Another calm and composed performance, capped by his goal – his first for QPR.

Cole Kpekawa: 7
Had some nervy moments, especially early on, but it was a gutsy performance by the 19-year-old left-back on his full league debut for the club. He was fully committed and always willing to venture forward.

jimmyfloydhasselbainkqprHasselbaink’s verdict: “Cole Kpekawa did very well. I’m very pleased. Ben Gladwin also did very well and I think there’s so much more to come from both of them. I think when it all settles, you will see much more quality from those two. Matt Ingram is 22 and once again played very calmly and with maturity – and that’s important.”

Alejandro Faurlin: 6
As always, looked the part when given time and space in midfield. But Reading, before they faded in the second half, were able to play through Rangers’ midfield far too easily when they attacked. In possession, though, Faurlin is neat and tidy on the ball and his set-pieces are an asset – his corner led to the opening goal.

Massimo Luongo: 7
Had a decent game. Served up a cross for Sebastian Polter, whose header was saved. Luongo was always busy and keen to create.

Matt Phillips: 5
His poor form continued and his substitution during the second half was greeted with cheers by the home fans. Low on confidence and created nothing of note.

Tjaronn Chery: 6
Mostly quiet, although he would have scored a sixth goal in seven home matches had a first-half free-kick not been well saved.

Ben Gladwin: 6
Given a chance to show his ability and did so, but only in patches. Will need to prove he can perform for 90 minutes if he is to establish himself as a first-team player next season.

Sebastian Polter: 5
Tried hard but had an afternoon to forget, summed up by a dismally misjudged header wide of the target in the final minutes.

Nasser El Khayati: 6
Enthusiastic but unable to have any real impact after replacing Gladwin for the final 20 minutes.
