QPR v Millwall player ratings

[/media-credit] Jake Bidwell set up QPR’s second goal

QPR made it 10 points from four games by beating Millwall at Loftus Road. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in their 2-0 victory.

Joe Lumley: 7

Quiet first period for the keeper, with a couple of routine catches. Palmed away a thunderous volley from Steve Morison in the second half before he claimed a loose ball which struck the crossbar from Shaun Williams’ header. He’ll be delighted with a clean sheet.

Angel Rangel: 7

Looked to get forward and was at ease defensively in the first 45 minutes. A pretty similar story in the second half, but his experience was there to deal with Millwall’s improved showing.

Joel Lynch: 7

Won’t have an easier first half. Tested a lot more in the second 45 initially, but Millwall ran out of ideas and he’ll be really happy with his night’s work.

Toni Leistner: 7

Hardly tested by Millwall’s frontline in the opening period. Had a bit more to do as the game went on, but he was still relatively comfortable. A good understanding at the back with Lynch.

Jake Bidwell: 7

Comfortable on the left and was never in any danger. Nearly made it three with a strike towards the near post only for Ben Amos to save with his feet.

Geoff Cameron: 6

Slightly anonymous first half but used his experience to steer his side over the line in certain situations. Could have maybe got into the game a bit more but he’ll be satisfied with his work.

Jordan Cousins: 7

Did his job well and showed good energy in front of the back four. Had a goal-bound follow-up was blocked after Amos had saved to deny Massimo Luongo.

QPR boss Steve McClaren: “It was an excellent performance in the first half. We were solid, composed and played good football. We were so good in that first half. We restricted and smothered them and we should have got a third goal in the second half.”

Massimo Luongo: 7

Grabbed the opener just shy of the half-hour, getting up to nod Rangers in front. Perhaps couldn’t get forward or into goal-scoring positions as the game went on, but he did so on one occasion when he saw his shot saved by Amos after Ebere Eze’s clever pass.

Luke Freeman: 7

Looked to find space and his movement was good. Had a couple of bursts through the middle trying to find that killer pass. Taken off with 10 minutes to go.

Ebere Eze: 8

Lively early on and sent in a fizzing delivery which was waiting to be tucked home. But he got on the scoresheet soon after Luongo to double Rangers’ lead. Came alive again with 12 minutes remaining, playing a lovely ball into Luongo’s feet inside the box. Now a real crowd favourite.

Nakhi Wells: 7

Couple of free-kicks over the bar and an effort well saved in the opening half hour, and then played a big part in the opening goal. A lot quieter in the second period and was substituted for Tomer Hemed.

Tomer Hemed: 6

On for Wells just after the midway point of the second half. A free-kick from 25 yards was well saved by Amos, getting across to his left.
