QPR suffered their second defeat in as many days at the hands of German opposition, going down 2-1 at Union Berlin.

The game had been rearranged at short notice after a downpour meant Saturday's fixture was abandoned after 13 minutes.

Connor Washington went close early on for Ian Holloway's side, but Damir Kreilach gave Berlin the lead from close-range on 18 minutes, after his initial effort was saved by Alex Smithies.

Matt Smith had a couple of opportunities miss the target in the opening period, however, he rose highest to nod QPR level shortly after the break.

Both teams looked like they might snatch a winner, unfortunately for Rangers, though, a high-foot from James Perch saw the hosts awarded a penalty.

And despite Smithies' best efforts, Phillipp Hosiner's low strike was too strong for him to keep out.

Rangers never really threatened a second equaliser and have one friendly remaining, at home to Bournemouth in the Stan Bowles Benefit match on Saturday, before the Championship season kicks off.

Here's how we rated the players' second half performances:

Alex Smithies

Commanding as ever in his box and almost kept out the penalty. Not really forced into many saves as Berlin failed to find the target with their best opportunities. 6

James Perch

Was involved in giving the ball away in the lead up to the penalty decision, and was caught out of position as his high-foot connected with the Berlin player. A disappointing end to his night after a good first half display. 5

Nedum Onuoha

Strong for the most part and won some vital headers. Crunching tackle saw him booked late on though. 6

Joel Lynch

Poor clearance could have cost the R's, but on the whole a solid display. Bailed Scowen out too with an important block. 6.5

Jake Bidwell

Better in the second half, with less of the hosts' dangerous attacks coming down the right flank. 6

Jamie Mackie

Almost equalised for the R's in the opening 60 seconds of the half, but his effort was straight at Busk who punched it away. After an energetic start he didn't get involved as much. 6

Ariel Borysiuk

Caught the eye out in Germany, but another whose first half performance was probably better than his second. Does the simple things well in the middile, an often underrated value. 6.5

Josh Scowen

A needless foul gave Union another well-placed free-kick, which was not utilised by the hosts. A less impressive second half performance. 6

Connor Washington

Did not get involved after the break. No doubt he'll be frustrated to be deployed out wide and it was not through a lack of trying that he failed to leave his mark on proceedings. 6

Yeni N'Gbakoto notched an assist in the defeat

Yeni Ngbakoto

His set-pieces might have been frustrating but a lovely ball drifted in for the equaliser and he was more lively on the whole. 6.5

Matt Smith

Took his goal well with a fine leap at the back post and it was deserved. QPR had numerous corners to defend and Smith played his role in defending them. The R's best player on the night. 7

Subs:

Massimo Luongo

On for the final 20 minutes - his second substitute appearance in the past two days - and had little impact. One poor cross at the end as Rangers looked to break. All about fitness after his international exploits. 6.5

Eberechi Eze

Played the final ten minutes and barely got involved. 6

Osman Kakay

Not a long appearance but the young full-back managed to impress. One cross was palmed away by Busk in Union's goal and he showed good awareness as the R's broke at the end. 7

Sean Goss

On for the final throws, no time to do anything. N/A
