Nahki Wells’ equaliser earned QPR an FA Cup fourth-round replay. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 1-1 draw at Portsmouth.
Joe Lumley: 6
Steady in the wet conditions. Commanded his area well and produced an alert first-half save, pushing over a shot from Louis Dennis.
Darnell Furlong: 6
Was given plenty of problems on his flank, where the cross from Lee Brown led to Pompey’s goal. Gave as good as he got though and got forward when possible.
Toni Leistner: 6
His reactions are sometimes not the quickest and that was the case for the Pompey goal. But the captain gave a wholehearted performance, which included several vital interceptions.
Joel Lynch: 5
Not a great day for the R’s defender. Unlucky when Brown’s cross deflected in off him, but he generally looked sluggish and missed a good chance in the first half.
Jake Bidwell: 6
Like Furlong, the left-back battled well but was given plenty of problems, especially during a second-half spell in which the hosts were well on top.
Pawel Wszolek: 6
Offered very little going forward and spent much of the game helping out Furlong.
Josh Scowen: 5
Unconvincing in midfield again. Gave the ball away on occasions and looked off the pace.
Ryan Manning: 6
Given a chance to impress, Manning started very well, threading a nice ball through to Luke Freeman, who shot wide. But the Irishman faded as the game wore on and did little to suggest he warrants a place in the side once Massimo Luongo returns.
Luke Freeman: 7
Missed a couple of chances, the first coming in the opening minute and the second late on, when he could have won the game for Rangers. But he was by far his team’s most creative player and Lynch should have scored following a Freeman set-piece before Wells eventually did.
Aramide Oteh: 6
Lively early on and bothered the home defence with his pace. Didn’t manage to maintain that momentum though and seemed to be struggling following a hefty challenge before he was taken off in the second half.
Nahki Wells: 7
Pounced to score from close range and the goal – his seventh of the season – was his reward for another hardworking performance up front. Kept going despite much frustration and a lack of service.
Bright Osayi-Samuel: 7
Did well after coming on. Gave Rangers a good outlet with his pace and turned the tables on a Pompey side who had been causing the visitors problems.
Matt Smith: 6
His aerial presence was a factor in the panic in the Portsmouth box which led to the goal. Did what we was brought on for.
