Man of the Match - Martin Rowlands

Man of the Match - Martin Rowlands

QPR fans have voted Martin Rowlands as Rangers man of the match against Burnley.

Rowlands commanding performance in midfield was one of very few positives to come from the FA Cup stalemate against Burnley.

The former Brentford man drove forward with the ball on several occasions probing for an opening against a stubborn Burnley defence.

You Said

While Rowlands took the gong this week, many of you thought the defence should have been singled out as the key to the R`s point:

tobobly: "Stewart and Gorkss did their jobs and made a few errors but didn't have a huge amount to do. I think possibly Rowlands for trying the whole time whilst covering for Mahon, Legs and the full-backs."

Sandydl concurred as second placed Damion Stewart was her choice this week:

sandydl: "Stewart for me. He just shades it over Gorkss coz - well, I dunno why but as I cant have two MOTMs, I'll plump for Stewpeas this week!

If Gorkss had scored with his speculative shot in the 2nd half he would've got it - if for nothing else, at least doing wot the flippin' forwards weren't & that was getting forward and having a go!!

Stewpeas was there or there abouts all day and hardly did anything wrong - even tho Burnley hardly had a crack at our defence, to be fair!!"


While there were others who found it tough to pick a player from the pack as Superhoop50 eloquently puts it:

Superhoop50: "Tough? That's the under-statement of the week!"

Rowlands came in narrowly ahead of second placed Damion Stewart and his defensive partner Kaspars Gorkss came in third.

The top three were as follows:

1. Martin Rowlands - 28%
2. Damion Stewart - 23%
3. Kaspars Gorkss - 16%
