Jack Robinson came through the whole 90 minutes for QPR's in their 3-2 defeat with Hull in the U23 Professional Development League.
The full back has been out with a hamstring complaint in recent weeks and has suffered a string of injuries since joining the club from Liverpool.
The 23-year-old would have had his heart in his mouth in the opening exchanges as his backpass eluded Connor Hudnott in the Rangers goal but the stopper got back to control.
Robinson grew into the game as it progressed, making a fine turn, to escape a dangerous situation as the Tigers pressed and threw himself into challenges and coming through them unscathed.
And he played a part in QPR taking a first-half lead when his long through down the left flank found Eberechi Eze.
The forward found space to work the ball into the box and Aramide Oteh drilled his shot past Scott Coughlon in the Tigers' goal.
Goalkeeper Conor Hudnott made two fine saves after the break to enhance his reputation, but he was beaten midway through the second half as Marc Kelledy beat the Rangers offside trap to side-foot home.
Rangers retook the lead with 16 minutes remaining as Eze drilled the ball home after sustained QPR pressure in the Hull penalty area.
But the Tigers were back on level terms soon after as Jeremy Arthur was penalised for a push in the box. Robbie McKenzie stepped up and drilled the ball into the net, leaving Hudnott helpless.
Robinson, though, was at fault for Hull's winning goal as his back header was underhit and Johan Ter Horst was on hand to punish the error and hand the Tigers the victory.
More importantly for the full back was the fact he came through the 90 minutes without any ill-effects. There's still a way to go for Robinson but he can be happy with the fact he came through the contest.
