QPR were punished for their shoddy defending and Nedum Onuoha was sent off on a woeful day for Ian Holloway’s side at Hull. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 4-0 defeat.
Alex Smithies: 6
A miserable afternoon for the Rangers keeper, the low point of which saw him score a freak own goal when the ball hit the bar and bounced off him and into the net. Left exposed so often and produced a couple of decent saves to keep the score down.
Darnell Furlong: 6
Did OK at right-back. Got forward on occasions and combined nicely with Luke Freeman to set up a chance for Massimo Luongo.
Nedum Onuoha: 6
Angered the home fans with a robust first-half challenge. Won plenty of others before being red-carded in injury time.
Jack Robinson: 5
On for Joel Lynch, who went off injured after 15 minutes, Robinson almost caught out Smithies with a wayward back-pass and in general he looked sluggish following a recent injury. He did, however, produce a terrific late block to prevent a fifth Hull goal.
Jake Bidwell: 6
Did the basics well enough without imposing himself at either end of the pitch. Got forward often during a bright period for Rangers early in the second half.
Ryan Manning: 6
Worked hard but was unable to make much of an impression in midfield before being sacrificed at half-time when Idrissa Sylla was sent on.
Josh Scowen: 5
Had an uncharacteristically poor game and was criticised by boss Ian Holloway for a late challenge which led to Onuoha’s dismissal.
Massimo Luongo: 5
Also struggled in the middle of the park, where the home side had the upper hand for most of the game. Luongo did go close with a first-half shot just before Hull’s second goal.
Pawel Wszolek: 6
A frustrating day for the Pole, who had no joy at all on the flank before being taken off in the second half.
Luke Freeman: 5
Another of Rangers’ midfielders who had an off day. His passing was poor at times and he was well below par apart from a decent spell early in the second half, when he did look a threat.
Ebere Eze: 6
Inevitably struggled up front on his own. Was helped by the extra support when Sylla came on and had a shot deflected wide, but it was a frustrating afternoon for the youngster.
Idrissa Sylla: 6
Not a major threat to the Hull defence when he was introduced for the second half, but the extra presence up front in itself gave Rangers some much-needed impetus and they were having a decent spell before Hull’s third goal ended any real chance of a comeback.
Bright Osayi-Samuel: 6
Keen, but unable to make any impact after being brought on midway through the second half with the game well and truly lost.
