Queens Park Rangers drew with Millwall last night in the Sky Bet Championship as they snapped out of their losing streak in the second tier.
The R’s were poor at the weekend against Huddersfield Town and needed to dig in and show some resolve to respond from that and get a result last night.
Indeed, they looked better at the New Den and perhaps could have won the game with the spells they had, though once again this season they could not take their chances when it really mattered.
With that in mind, it was at least pleasing for fans to see them not end up losing the match as they have in recent games – though the goal they conceded was soft – and goalkeeper Seny Dieng earned praise for another decent performance between the sticks.
He seems to have solved the goalkeeper problem that struck QPR last season, and fans on Twitter once again lined up to issue him praise:
Dieng being left exposed but our defence but thank heavens he’s not Lumley coz that would have been in the back of our net 😳 #QPR

Chair and Bright may often get the headlines but Dieng put in another assured performance. This guy could be a keeper. #QPR

Players are tired… Picks same players…..repeat… repeat…
Need a CB, LB and CM in Jan.
BOS will go.
Dykes needs a rest, Kelman should be given at least a start.
Niko not good enough for Championship, ok as second choice.
Dieng POTS so far#qpr

Overall much better tonight. Subs slightly uninspiring. One of Carroll’s best games and thought Dickie was immense. Cameron waste of breath and questions around Dkyes. Special mention for Seny, what a keeper he looks like #QPR
