QPR go in level at the break after a scrappy first half at Loftus Road.

Both sides have created chances, but who have been the Hoops' best performers in the first half?

Three stars - Josh Scowen

Josh Scowen

Boy, have QPR missed Josh Scowen.

The midfielder picked up exactly where he left off before his injury, easily shrugging the attacker off the ball early on in a clear show of intent.

He's been at the centre of everything QPR have done and has been key to going toe-to-toe with a tough Burton midfield; a performance that we now come to expect from the former-Barnsley man.

Two stars - Alex Baptiste

Alex John-Baptiste looks to challenge Nico Yennaris

The defender may face competition for his starting spot with the news of Joel Lynch and Steven Caulker's return to fitness, but he's certainly not giving his spot up without a fight.

Baptiste has shown experience and quality so far this afternoon, looking good enough to stake a claim as the Hoops' first choice centre-back.

One star - Pawel Wszolek

Pawel Wszolek has a shot

The winger has been a valuable outlet for the Hoops.

The game has been a bit of a scrappy battle in midfield, but Wszolek has kept his composure as he sticks to the right flank, ensuring that his team has an option at all times to hit the Brewers on the counter.

Wszolek has also created a number of opportunities, looking dangerous every time he gets on the ball.
