Queens Park Rangers got back to winning ways on the road after a couple of away defeats in recent weeks with a good win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside.
They had to see out the final half an hour with ten men after Seny Dieng’s red card but held firm and saw out their victory, with a number of impressive displays from Hoops players to note.
Indeed, perhaps one man that stole the show more than anyone else was Rob Dickie with an absolute thunderbolt of a strike early on in the clash.
Naturally, that will get the headlines over his individual performance but, as has been the case for a lot of this season, his defensive work was also very impressive against Boro.
With the help of Whoscored, we can note that time and again he was on hand to deliver important defensive interventions.
He racked up seven clearances during his performance against the Teessiders and won a further seven aerial duels.
Last time out, Mark Warburton bemoaned his QPR side for not standing up to the physical challenge that Rotherham posed but he can certainly have no complaints here, with Dickie among those to really go toe-to-toe with a naturally physically competitive Neil Warnock Boro team.
As we know with Dickie, though, he’s also got style with the substance and again his work with the ball at his feet was strong, getting a pass success rate of 82%.
Of course, only his fantastic goal will get the headlines but, as ever, he was exemplary at centre-half and even without the strike he’d have been one of Rangers’ best performers on the day.
