Queens Park Rangers have had a promising start to proceedings in the Sky Bet Championship and are certainly looking as though they could deliver on some of the tips they were getting to be top-six contenders this year.
The Hoops have won two and drawn one from their opening three fixtures of the EFL season and perhaps recorded the most impressive of the lot on Wednesday night, given their opponents Middlesbrough have also started well and are expected to be up near the sharp end this season too.
Indeed, with ten men for a large portion of the game and away from home, QPR dug in to produce a really fine result and the standout performance surely came from Chris Willock, who lit up the Riverside Stadium:
As you can see from the stats above, it was an all-action display from Willock in an attacking sense, with his creativity and quick feet generating huge problems for Middlesbrough.
His goal was well-taken from the edge of the box, too, and it rather summed up his night that was sprinkled with quality.
With the likes of Ilias Chair often the sole man to play in behind Lyndon Dykes and Charlie Austin when Mark Warburton opts for two up top, Willock has to take the opportunities he is given when they come up and he certainly did that last night.
Dovetailing nicely with Dykes and Chair with Austin starting on the bench, he highlighted both the top attributes he can bring to QPR and the evident depth they have in the final third with players like him available.
Willock has a lot of backers among the QPR support, and performances like this will only swell the membership of his fan club.
