QPR secured a well-deserved 2-0 victory over promotion hopefuls Reading.
Despite pre-match predictions, Ian Holloway’s men dominated virtually from start to finish, and looked comfortable particularly when Reading were reduced to 10 men.
We take a look at the top performers on a thoroughly enjoyable day at Loftus Road.
Three stars – Luke Freeman
The attacking midfielder was been the best player on the park by a mile. Not only did he been performing his defensive duties, but he was a constant pain for Reading as he buzzed around in the number 10 role behind Conor Washington and Jamie Mackie.
His fast feet were instrumental in teeing up Pawel Wszolek who crossed for Conor Washington to give QPR the lead, and was a key creative hinge as Ian Holloway’s side created the better of the chances.
Two stars – Conor Washington
It was a great day at the office for the former Peterborough United man. His tireless work ethic is never questioned as he puts the defence under pressure. Despite missing a couple of good chances, he did excellent well to recover and get himself on the score-sheet on two occasions. Along with the fans, Washington will be hoping he can take this form forward into the next few games.
One star – Josh Scowen
Very much the unsung hero. Broke up play well and acted swiftly to set QPR up on the counter attack. You can tell he’s the kind of player who will happily fly under the radar in midfield.
