Ten-man QPR sunk to a 3-0 defeat at Oakwell against Barnsley. Here’s how we rated the Rangers players .
Seny Dieng: 8
Could do nothing about about the goals and made four excellent late saves to prevent an even more emphatic scoreline for the Tykes. Continues to impress between the sticks.
Osman Kakay: 5
Exposed badly for the second goal where he was easily beaten by Conor Chaplin as he doubled Barnsley’s lead. Lacked composure in possession and struggled against the lively home attack all evening.
Niko Hamalainen: 5
Never really offered anything going forward in his second senior start. Looked lightweight in defence and was constantly targeted by the home side. Perhaps lacks the quality to play at this level.
Rob Dickie: 5
Handed a straight red card for a nudge in the box on Cauley Woodrow that led felled the former Fulham man, who immediately opened the scoring from the spot. Had looked solid in the early exchanges.
Yoann Barbet: 5
Caught flat-footed by the through ball that led to Dickie’s red card and scored a comical own goal to make it 3-0 on a night to forget.
Tom Carroll: 5
Named in the side in place of contract rebel Bright Osayi-Samuel but did little to replicate his attacking threat. Far too loose in possession and bypassed so often and easily in midfield.
Dominic Ball: 5
Slow to react in the build-up to the first goal and never really got to grips with being the main fulcrum in the middle of the park. Made a few decent passes early in the game but once Rangers were reduced to 10 men he was run ragged and failed to offer any protection for the defence.
Albert Adomah: 6
Looked lively when Rangers were on top in the first 20 minutes. Moved to wing-back as Mark Warburton switched formation after Dickie’s dismissal, before being replaced in the second half.
Ilias Chair: 6
Hugely unfortunate to be sacrificed after half an hour following the sending-off having started the game very brightly where he looked the team’s best attacking threat.
Lyndon Dykes: 5
Worked hard but aside from one header in the first half he failed to trouble the Barnsley defence. Forced to drop deep in a bid to get the ball due to the lack of quality from the Rangers midfield.
Macauley Bonne: 5
Another disappointing display. Gave away possession in the build-up to Barnsley’s opener and struggled to hold the ball up. Offered little threat in attack but, in mitigation, he was given precious little to work with.
Conor Masterson: 6
Did OK when sent when he was sent on after Dickie’s early exit. A vocal presence at the back, but like the rest of the defence can thank Dieng for keeping the scoreline semi-respectable as Barnsley attacked at will in the final 10 minutes.
Chris Willock: 6
Has to be knocking on the door to start the match against Cardiff on Saturday after another lively cameo. Pushed up front in place of Bonne and made an instant difference with his pace and good use of the ball. One of the few positives on a dreadful evening.
Todd Kane: 6
First appearance of the season for the former Chelsea trainee and he did well after coming on. Won a few tackles and played some decent passes to at least give Dykes and Willock something to try and work with. Should be in contention to start on Saturday at right-back.
