Swansea took advantage of QPR’s generosity to beat them 3-1 at Loftus Road. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player.
Joe Lumley: 6
Left exposed at key times. Produced a smart save in the first half to tip away an effort from Bersant Celina.
Todd Kane: 6
Lively getting forward from right-back and almost scored with a misdirected cross which hit the bar.
Grant Hall: 6
Dragged out of position on the odd occasion but was generally solid.
Yoann Barbet: 5
His distribution from the back and aerial presence in both boxes are assets for Rangers but he is prone to silly mistakes and a daft challenge led to a penalty and the game swinging away from his team just after they had equalised and were in the ascendancy.
Ryan Manning: 6
A decent showing at left-back and his set-piece deliveries have cushioned the blow of losing Luke Freeman during the summer.
Geoff Cameron: 6
Useful on the ball before being taken off but Swansea found it easy to play around the veteran midfielder when breaking forward at pace.
Matt Smith: 5
Still young and adapting to Championship football, but Rangers were vulnerable in deep midfield areas Smith was brought in to add bite in. He does the basics well but will need to offer more.
Bright Osayi-Samuel: 7
Always looked a threat. Lacks finesse at times but his pace and enthusiasm always bothered Swansea, who will be relieved that Rangers were not able to get the ball to him more often.
Luke Amos: 6
Another on-loan youngster finding his feet in the Championship. Went off with a hamstring injury Rangers are hoping isn’t serious.
Ebere Eze: 7
Worried Swansea in the first half with a couple of jinking runs and a low shot which was tipped away. Faded after the interval.
Jordan Hugill: 7
Frustrated, but stuck at it and worked hard up front. Went close with a volley and hauled QPR level with a fine header.
Josh Scowen: 6
Not bad after replacing Amos.
Ilias Chair: 7
Another very impressive showing as a substitute. Picked up space well, always wanted the ball and was denied a goal by a block at point-blank range before supplying the cross for Hugill’s goal.
Marc Pugh: 7
Also did very well after coming on. Some great work on the left created the chance for Chair.
