QPR v Preston player ratings
QPR’s horrific slump towards the relegation zone continued with another dismal defeat – their 10th at home this season. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-0 loss to Preston.
Seny Dieng: 6
Produced a fine save in the first half to keep out Jordan Storey’s far-post header but couldn’t rescue his side in the second half.
Rob Dickie: 5
Has had a terrible season and was poor again.
Leon Balogun: 5
Won the odd challenge but was generally all over the place. Lost possession in the first half and it almost led to a goal.
Jimmy Dunne: 5
Shaky throughout and both Dunne and Balogun were at fault for the second goal when they failed to deal with a routine ball over the top. Farcical defending.
Ethan Laird: 5
Offered very little before going off in the second half. His loan spell seemed full of promise but has turned out to be a major disappointment.
Sam Field: 6
Like Balogun he gave the ball away cheaply early on. Deserves some credit though for competing well in midfield.
Stefan Johansen: 5
A passenger at times. Is neither the aggressive competitor he once was or the more cultured midfielder he looked during his early days at QPR.
Kenneth Paal: 6
Did little of note. Like Laird, his season has petered out.
Ilias Chair: 6
Tried to make things happen. Missed a glorious chance though when Chris Willock put him through in the first half.
Chris Willock: 6
As well as setting up Chair he showed moments of his quality as he looks to regain his sharpness.
Lyndon Dykes: 5
Offered no goal threat at all. So easy for the better Championship defenders to deal with.
Albert Adomah: 6
Fairly lively after coming on for Laird midway through the second half.
Jamal Lowe: 6
Did OK as a wing-back after being brought on. Luke Amos and Chris Martin were later introduced too.

At this rate we will be relegated again next season, down to obscurity – a bit like the oozlum bird.

There’s a sad smile on the frail face of the watery eyed patient who has nothing left and nothing to fight on for. 6 more rasping gasps for breath before he can be put quietly out of his misery.
But fear not “Saint Les” is eternal and will be there for ever and ever, “Mayhem”

Bar Chair and Dieng, no one who was a three or higher. Big, big questions for the rest as to why they are so poor. Can’t blame the current manager, and would seem odd to blame one who left in November… so… what’s your excuse?
