QPR were edged out 3-2 by a deserving Middlesbrough - but there was plenty to marvel and moan at on a dramatic night at Loftus Road. You decide below whether these were the major talking points.
Say what you like, Karl Henry is an unsung hero
The midfielder gets it in the neck from Rs fans far too frequently, but he gets through the dirty work none more so than in this match. His goal-saving tackle on Gaston Ramirez early on was typical of an unappreciated man.
Grant Hall has been the find of the season - but he wasn't on song against Boro.
The return of the ex-Spurs man should have heralded good things, but Hall's double gaffe for the first Boro goal looked to have been as much down to match rust as anything else.
Here's something you don't read every day - praise for a match official
Take a bow Carl Fitch. The lino was razor sharp to see the ball had crossed the line for Jamie Mackie's goal as it cannoned in off the underside of the bar and out. Frank Lampard, World Cup 2010 and all that - eat your heart out.
Here's something you read quite frequently - 'bad decision, lino...'
As quick as Fitch was to see Mackie's goal, Darren Robathan with the other flag incorrectly ruled out Junior Hoilett's cross met by Seb Polter that would have made it 3-2. The fact that Chery's late goal did count was gutting for Hoops.

The Rs captain believes the Hoops number one will be every bit as good as former England keeper Rob Green was. Smithies underlined that bold claim with a great game and a very good penalty save.
