    Could do nothing about the goals as his defence went AWOL, but did make a good late stop.

    Disaster early on as he put Dean Lewington's effort into his own net.

    Fabio Da Silva

    Looked to get forward at every opportunity but didn't have enough quality to make a breakthrough and struggled despite a late goal.

    Tal Ben Haim

    Looked dangerous at set-pieces but his eagerness to reach the ball meant he often gave away fouls. Looked well off the pace.

    Esteban Granero

    Classy on the ball and in his distribution, one of the few QPR players to show any hint of invention.

    Ji-Sung Park

    The South Korean put in an energetic performance as always, but he is best suited to high-tempo games rather than controlling them.

    DJ Campbell

    Struggled to get into the game despite his pace, this was a wasted opportunity for him to prove himself to Redknapp.

    Jay Bothroyd

    Like the rest of his team, showed little quality when it was badly needed.

    Jamie Mackie

    Full of energy and running but his touch let him down when he worked the ball into dangerous areas.

    Shaun Williams

    In the right place at the right time to clear a number of QPR crosses, he sucked the life out of the hosts' attacking attempts throughout.
