QPR bounced back from Saturday’s league defeat to Charlton by winning 3-0 at Yeovil in the League Cup. Here’s how we rated the players in Tuesday night’s game at Huish Park.
Rob Green: 7
Made two excellent second-half saves which underlines the quality he has. Had little to do beyond that, in truth.
James Perch: 7
A solid display at full-back, although he was booked midway through the first half.
Nedum Onuoha: 8
A fully committed performance on his 100th appearance, even after being bandaged up following a clash of heads. Talked his junior centre-back partner through the game and celebrated his landmark with a goal.
Grant Hall: 7
Very comfortable on the ball and a good reader of the game off it. A promising first 90 minutes from the ex-Tottenham man.
Cole Kpekawa: 7
The teenager was impressive on his full debut, showing good pace and assisting Emmanuel-Thomas for Rangers’ second goal.
Michael Doughty: 8
Very assured in the middle of the park, winning back the ball and tidy with his distribution. Greater challenges than this await him but this was an excellent first start in a Rangers shirt.
Oscar Gobern: 7
The ex-Huddersfield midfielder put in a very good shift in his first 77 minutes of action, and had a hand in Onuoha’s goal amid a bit of a scramble.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas: 8
Having played just 19 minutes on Saturday, the summer signing from Bristol City [pictured above] was keen to impress. Lively and hard-working, he produced a neat finish for Rangers’ second and often looked a threat.
Ben Gladwin 7:
Sat in the middle of the three behind Seb Polter and did well during his hour on the pitch before being withdrawn for Karl Henry.
Matt Phillips: 7
Caused Yeovil some problems in bursts and produced some telling deliveries from corners. Made way on 70 minutes for Tyler Blackwood, but his selection suggests he may have a future beyond the transfer deadline.
Seb Polter 8:
Led the line superbly and showed great strength for the goal which began the victory. Good in the air, shifted quickly over long and short distances and was still going right up to the final whistle.
Karl Henry 6:
Came on to shore up the midfield but had little real impact.
Tyler Blackwood 6:
Seemed to enjoy his first 20 minutes of professional football and certainly put himself about.
