QPR v Huddersfield player ratings

QPR are just five points above the relegation zone after losing against Huddersfield. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-1 defeat.

Alex Smithies: 6

Beaten by two fine strikes against his former club. Otherwise had fairly little to do.

Nedum Onuoha: 7

An improvement on recent performances. The Rangers skipper won plenty of challenges in a determined display.

James Perch: 6

Never completely convincing in his central role. Even less so on the occasions he ventured forward.

Jake Bidwell: 6

Generally not too bad, but had a poor spell during the all-important first-half period in which Huddersfield took control.

Pawel Wszolek: 6

Always willing to work, but the quality is not there at the moment.

Massimo Luongo: 5

Not a good performance. Failed to make an impact as his fellow Australian Aaron Mooy dominated in midfield.

Grant Hall: 5

Another player unable to impose himself in the middle of the pitch, although he did create a first-half chance for Conor Washington.

Ryan Manning: 6

Made mistakes on and particularly off the ball, but was always competitive and the occasional clever pass created openings.

Jamie Mackie: 6

Covered plenty of ground but it was a case of quantity over quality.

Conor Washington: 6

Lively in spells. Unlucky not to score in the first half and created a good chance for Matt Smith in the second.

Matt Smith: 6

Did what he was brought in to do, which is to offer an aerial presence and look to link up with Washington.

Luke Freeman: 7

Certainly made an impact after coming on, scoring with a cracking strike and causing Huddersfield’s defence some problems with his trickery.

Kazenga LuaLua: 7

Also helped bring Rangers back into the game after coming on. His cross led to their goal.
