Player ratings from QPR’s 2-2 draw against West Brom – Sam Field the hero but Steve Cook excels in defence once more

QPR moved a point clear of the Championship relegation zone following a 2-2 draw against West Brom at Loftus Road.

A brace from Sam Field cancelled out goals from Mikey Johnston and Grady Diangana as Rangers extended their unbeaten run to four matches.

Here are Dan Evans’ player ratings from Loftus Road.

Asmir Begovic – 6

Rarely called into action but could have done little about either of West Brom’s well-taken goals.

Jimmy Dunne – 7

Continues to grow in confidence at right-back. Was given a tough first half by Mikey Johnston but stood up the challenge and made a number of charges down the flank.

Steve Cook – 8

Continues to be the bedrock upon which QPR’s push for survival is being built. Won several important headers and tackles, and almost the scored the best goal of a 15-year career with a late overhead kick.

Jake Clarke-Salter – 6

A solid showing but not quite as impressive as his defensive partner. Replaced by Morgan Fox late on.

Kenneth Paal – 6

Not overly involved in attack or defence. Replaced by Lyndon Dykes as QPR chased the equaliser.

Lucas Andersen – 7

Another classy showing from the Danish midfielder. Made six key passes and set up Field for his first goal with a perfectly weighted cross.

Isaac Hayden – 6

Did a good job of controlling the game but did not have a great deal of defensive work to do. Replaced by Joe Hodge on the hour mark.

Sam Field – 8

Scored the goals that earned Rangers a point but was an all-round brilliant performance. Made more than one important tackle in the middle of the park and troubled West Brom with his running off the ball.

Paul Smyth – 6

A busy evening down the right flank but he never quite found the perfect cross to fashion a clear-cut opportunity.

Michael Frey – 6

Missed a second half penalty that would have set QPR up for more than half hour to try and win the game. Was still a nuisance for the Albion backline though and constantly won back possession high up the pitch.

Ilias Chair – 6

Was not QPR’s most influential attacker for once. Still made four key passes though and gave Darnell Furlong a difficult evening.


Joe Hodge – 6

Tidy showing from the midfielder, helping to sustain attacks as QPR pushed for the equaliser.

Chris Willock – 7

Continued his good form in this cameo, providing attacking thrust just as it was needed. Lovely cross to the back post created the melee from which Field equalised.

Lyndon Dykes – NA

Morgan Fox – NA
