QPR’s terrible run continued as they were beaten 3-0 by Sunderland at Loftus Road. Here’s how we rated the Rangers players.
Seny Dieng: 5
Made a couple of decent saves before a costly error resulted in the opening goal. He fumbled Daniel Ballard’s header from Alex Pritchard’s corner, twice failing to gather the ball before Luke O’Nien bundled it in.
Ethan Laird: 6
Tried to add some attacking impetus from right-back but was taken off at half-time.
Rob Dickie: 5
Has had a poor season – and it continued with another shoddy performance. Jack Clarke skipped past him with ease before slotting in the second goal.
Jimmy Dunne: 5
Always committed, but the mistakes keep coming, including when he misjudged a routine ball over the top in the first half and it almost led to a goal.
Kenneth Paal: 6
Made some headway on the left, combining well with Ilias Chair at times, but produced nothing of any real note.
Sam Field: 6
Competed well – and needed to, with the ineffective Tim Iroegbunam and Andre Dozzell alongside him – but was himself off the pace and below his usual standard.
Tim Iroegbunam: 5
Has plenty of energy but simply gives the ball away far too cheaply. He was guilty of it again in this game.
Andre Dozzell: 5
Also very sloppy on the ball and Sunderland easily played through him in midfield.
Ilias Chair: 7
Saw a second-half penalty saved, which was unfortunate for him as his cross led to the spot-kick being awarded and he was involved in almost all Rangers’ best moments, especially during a relatively lively spell for them in the first half.
Jamal Lowe: 6
Did well in the first half, when he sent a low shot narrowly wide and posed Sunderland a problem when he pulled out wide. Faded in the second half though.
Chris Martin: 6
Physical and determined up front but was well contained. Glanced a second-half effort wide of the target from Lowe’s cross.
Osman Kakay: 5
On for Laird and had a tough time up against Clarke.
Sinclair Armstrong: 6
Introduced in the second half. Exciting but the end product isn’t there yet.
