Former West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison moved closer to a switch to QPR after played all 90 minutes of their 0-0 draw at Southend last night.
Collison left Upton Park at the end of last season after being sidelined by a persistent knee injury, but has been on trial with QPR and went on tour with them to Germany, and impressed during the friendly at Roots Hall.
Rs boss Harry Redknapp continued his recent trend for 3-5-2, fielding wingers Matt Phillips and Michael Petrasso starting in a makeshift forward line.
South Korean left-back Yun Suk-Young also made his first appearance for the Hoops since returning from the World Cup.
However, there was no Rio Ferdinand on the advice of the club's medical staff.
