Athleticism down the right opened up a lot of chances for his side, with the full-back often delivering telling balls into the box too. Fired in a great pass to Jamie Mackie to assist the winger’s goal.
Had the measure of Wayne Routledge throughout though offered a minimal amount going forward .
Marshaled his defence well but was aided by the fact that Swansea showed very little invention going forward.
Rarely troubled by the presence of Danny Graham and was fully deserving of the clean sheet.
Big presence in the middle of the park and showed composure on the ball when others around him were often making mistakes. Always drove forward with intent when the chance presented itself.
Popped up sporadically all over the park in a free role and impressed whenever he got on the ball, providing the assist for Joey Barton’s goal. Shame he did not affect the game in more prolonged spells.
Made a nuisance with himself with late arrivals into the box the entire game before putting the cheery on top of a great QPR performance with an unstoppable drive from just outside the area.
Involved in the first half’s key moments, clearing Scott Sinclair’s effort off the line before opening the scoring with a well taken, low finish. His captaincy made the difference for his team.
Made himself a constant handful, turning and finishing with style to double his sides lead early on in the second half.
Played well as a focal point for QPR’s forays forward, often linking up intelligently with the host of attacking midfielders that broke forward to join him.
Profited from some soft QPR finishing but had a few hairy moments himself after flapping at a couple crosses.
A day to forget as Swansea capitulated in the second half. Turned all too easily for Mackie’s second goal and will want his team to regroup before their poor run gives them a jittery end to the season.
Though most of QPR’s threat came down the other flank, he too often found himself being pulled all over the show by Adel Taarabt’s movement.
The physical presence of Bobby Zamora gave him a few headaches, especially given the willingness of the Hoops’ forwards’ eagerness to join the front man.
QPR threatened most down the right, with the full-back overwhelmed by Nedum Onuoha’s forceful runs down the line and Jamie Mackie’s runs inside. Withdrawn at half-time after his foul on Bobby Zamora, which led Joey Barton’s goal perhaps still fresh in Brendan Rodgers’ mind.
Found himself dominated by Nedum Onuoha for long spells, very rarely getting the better of him. His team could have done with him sparking them into life but he to ever really get going.
Set piece delivery always a threat but surprisingly found chances to get on the ball few and far between.
Seemed to see a lot less of the ball than he’s used to and struggled to match the bite that QPR’s midfield delivered in the middle.
Wasn’t his day in west London, with the opposition’s industrious midfield disrupting the rhythm he was trying to orchestrate. Hauled off at the hour mark.
Half-volleyed over from the edge of the box in the first half when a cooler head was called for. Found it difficult to impose himself on Taye Taiwo and was consequently withdrawn at half time.
Often isolated up top for long spells but when called into action shortly after QPR’s second, poked wide from mere yards out.
- 24 R. Černý
- 6 D. Gabbidon
- 18 L. Young
Skewed a volley on the edge of the area laughably high and wide as QPR sauntered to victory.
Brought on to save Bobby Zamora’s legs and played a very similar role. Game was already done and dusted by the time he was introduced.
- 9 D. Campbell
Only had a couple minutes to impress with the game petering out as he was thrown into the mix.
- 25 G. Tremmel
- 16 G. Monk
QPR seized the initiative after the break meaning that the substitute endured a torrid time before settling into the game. One to forget.
- 17 J. McEachran
Was as ineffectual as the man he replaced at half-time as QPR endeavoured to build on the lead they established just before the interval. Was changed with defending the entire time with scant opportunity to get Taye Taiwo on his back foot.
