Queens Park Rangers narrowly lost at Aston Villa on Tuesday night, conceding very early on to a Jonathan Kodjia strike.
The Hoops didn't really get going until the second half and looked even better when Matt Smith and Conor Washington came on.
Digital Football Writer for Trinity Mirror's Get West London title, Mark Ritson, was at Villa Park reporting on the game and has summarised what he learnt from Ian Holloway's side.
Must start better
Not stating the obvious, but when you go to a big club like Villa, you have to expect the home side to come out strong. QPR were too naive.
Rangers were asleep from the off and perhaps gave Villa too much respect. When Albert Adomah hit the post after three minutes, that should have been enough to realise what they were up againt.
But 120 seconds later, the defence went missing and Jonathan Kodjia was easily played in to hammer home.
These two need to start more
Sorry, but Idrissa Sylla had a shocking game last night. He was very poor. OK, you could argue he didn't have the service, but he looked far too lightweight up there.
When Matt Smith came on, there was an aerial presence with a bit of beef to ruffle the Villa backline, and when Conor Washington came on, it gave Rangers trickery and pace.
OK, Holloway might have had one eye on the game with Brighton on Friday, but those two showed they need to start more often together.
QPR's tails were up at that point of the match, too.
He can't do it all
Skipper Massimo Luongo seemed to be everywhere and put in an energetic performance on the road. He tried to play box-to-box and get forward, but he needed a bit more experience alongside him.
Sean Goss was anonymous for the majority and you just feel someone with a bit more presence would have given Rangers that extra edge with Luongo's ability.
It's an area they need to strengthen this summer, for me.
