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.
