QPR clinched a second successive away victory and their third win on the road this season – as many as they managed throughout the whole of last term. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-0 success at Ipswich.
Joe Lumley: 7
Had very little to do but dealt well with whatever came his way, not least when superbly claiming a dangerous cross from Gwion Edwards.
Angel Rangel: 7
An impressive display from the veteran right-back, who was eager to get forward but always positionally sound. Very quick to cover his centre-backs when required. Unable to take a chance after being set up by Ebere Eze though.
Toni Leistner: 8
Excellent at the heart of Rangers’ defence, where he lost nothing in the air and organised the back four well.
Joel Lynch: 8
Had a fine game too. Won numerous challenges and also displayed plenty of quality on the ball.
Jake Bidwell: 7
After a disappointing start in which he gave the ball away cheaply and mis-hit a cross, the left-back produced a more than decent performance. Fantastic challenge on on-loan Chelsea youngster Trevoh Chalobah in the second half.
Pawel Wszolek: 7
Justified his recall to the side with a powerful display on the flank, where he gave Janoi Donacien major problems. Wszolek can be frustrating to watch at times, however, and on a couple of occasions he took too much time when a shot was potentially on.
Geoff Cameron: 8
Did really well in the centre of the pitch, helping Rangers dominate. Looked a level above the Championship.
Massimo Luongo: 7
Gave the ball away sloppily on the odd occasion but worked hard in midfield, playing his part in a terrific Rangers win.
Luke Freeman: 7
His corner led to the opening goal, which came courtesy of keeper Dean Gerken diverting Freeman’s delivery in. Always a problem for Ipswich with his passing and clever movement.
Ebere Eze: 7
Missed a good chance when he was too casual after being put through and shot straight at Gerken. And the youngster was fairly anonymous for spells of the game. But he is so exciting to watch, won a penalty and almost scored with a left-footed strike which clipped the bar. Also delightfully created an opening for Rangel.
Tomer Hemed: 7
Led from the front with a hardworking performance in which he pressed Ipswich’s defenders and produced some fine hold-up play. Tucked away his penalty for his second goal since joining the R’s on loan.
Nahki Wells: 7
Bright up front after replacing Hemed for the final 17 minutes.
