Ilias Chair fired QPR ahead but a Joe Lumley error and some diabolical last-minute defending gifted Hull the points. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-1 defeat.
Joe Lumley: 5
Far too casual when failing to grasp a routine ball into the box. Spilling Josh Bowler’s cross presented George Honeyman with an equaliser when Rangers were in control and was the latest blunder of an error-strewn season for Lumley. He atoned somewhat by diving to his right to push away a shot from Bowler and was defended by boss Mark Warburton, but he surely now faces the axe in favour of the fit-again Liam Kelly.
Angel Rangel: 7
Had a decent game on his return to the side. Defended well and got forward to good effect too, the highlight of his performance being a burst down the right which led to Nahki Wells going close.
Grant Hall: 6
Solid enough. Did the basics well and was competent on the ball.
Toni Leistner: 6
Also performed fairly well, but Rangers lack a true leader at the back.
Ryan Manning: 7
Kept Bowler largely quiet in a battle with his former team-mate. Contributed at the other end and was involved in the build up to Chair’s goal.
Dominic Ball: 6
Pretty good in the first half. Not so effective in the second. Always combative.
Luke Amos: 6
Seems to be finding his feet at Rangers. Always willing to put a foot in and started a number of attacks, including when he created chances for Chair and Wells. Faded before being taken off though.
Bright Osayi-Samuel: 7
Dangerous on the flank and went close when he cut inside and fired over the bar early in the second half.
Ilias Chair: 8
Fine strike for his goal – a right-footed effort from near the left-hand edge of the penalty area – and was involved in much of Rangers’ best moments. Unlucky to be taken off in the second half.
Ebere Eze: 7
Showed trademark moments of his skill and created a couple of openings, but Hull coped with him well.
Nahki Wells: 6
Worked hard up front. Missed a decent chance and created one for Jordan Hugill.
Matt Smith: 6
Brought on for Amos midway through the second half. Still yet to make any real impact for the R’s.
Jordan Hugill: 5
Sent on for the final 12 minutes and unable to take a chance when it came his way, failing to get to Wells’ low cross.
