Football Insider rates the QPR players after their 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Thursday evening in the Championship clash at Loftus Road.

Alex Smithies 8 – Did well to bounce back from his howler against Ipswich. Couldn’t do anything about the goals and produced a number of strong saves and clearances. Good performance.

Nedum Onuoha 7 – Looked to get forward when he could and provided a few options on the overlap.

Grant Hall 7 – Produced a resilient performance with 10 men and was unlucky to concede in defence. Was lucky not to give away a penalty for handball.

Joel Lynch 7 – Probably QPR’s best defender. Looked organised and gave Wolves relatively few opportunities. Grabbed a consolation goal too.

James Perch 4 – Was sent off after just 34 minutes for picking up two yellow cards. Let his side down massively and it cost QPR the game.

Sandro 7 – Didn’t allow Wolves through the midfield and was solid alongside Luongo.

Massimo Luongo 7 – Produced a reasonably good display in midfield but was tested a lot due to the extra man.

Tjaronn Chery 7 – Was a threat on the wing but was missing that spark QPR needed. Was at the heart of most positive attacks though.

Jack Robinson 6 – Did relatively little and made few impressions during the game.

Conor Washington 6 – Struggled to get involved despite playing in his preferred position and was replaced at half-time.

Sebastian Polter 6 – Tried to make some runs in behind the defenders but like his strike partner, was a little quiet throughout.

Karl Henry (for Sandro 62 mins) 6

Idrissa Sylla (for Polter 68 mins) 6
