We have put a few good crosses in to their box but for whom? Can’t see us winning too many headers in there.

Utterly pointless booking for Pavel

Come on Rangers: their defence looks poor. Nice period of attacking play from us, shame about the terrible miss by Eze.

Always amazes me that thousands of fans can have completely different perceptions from the manager.

It would be nice to think the manager knows something we don’t, but given that we look tired and are 1-0 down, you do wonder why he didn’t move to bring in some fresh legs.

Perhaps he was hoping to get to half time level and then bring on subs early in the second half. But I can’t remember many times when he has brough subs on before 70 minutes, which may be too late.

Golden chance foe Eze, blasted over. We've looked better since they scored but they look far more likely to score!

The boys have done well first half: both teams have looked dangerous going forward and dodgy at the back so would expect more goals in the second half.

Not a bad half in the end. As has been said we were better after they scored showing more attacking intent. Our passing needs to improve but if we keep the momentum going we could well take something away from this game.

I think that Eze is very important - on form he holds the ball up, brings other people in and takes pressure off the back 4. We have not had that many players that can do this well since Kevin Gallen. I think it makes us more effective away from home.

I guess the good thing is that we do have some players that could come off the bench - Manning could be effective in the last 20 minutes.

Having sat at Loftus Road on Saturday and watched us struggle to break down Reading, I am amazed that they are 4-0 down at home to Swansea at the start of the 2nd half.

...the problem vs Reading was that we lost completely the midfield....letting them run around as they liked...
