Player Ratings – Cardiff City 3, Queens Park Rangers 0

Alex Smithies

Former number one goalie Etheridge is having to be patient after recovering from injury. Satisfying clean sheet. Smithies is keeping his place on merit – and his save from Osayi-Samuel was sublime 7

Lee Peltier

Solid, reliable, effective. Under pressure at times, but knows how to defend 7

Sean Morrison

Five-star displays of leadership and defending from the skipper. Scored Cardiff’s first goal 8

Aden Flint

The 6ft 5ins centre-back adds extra defensive strength to the team alongside Morrison 7

Joe Bennett 

Embed from Getty Images

Took on a massive challenge against the pace of Osayi-Samuel and struggled to cope 6

Leandro Bacuna

Links well with Pack through midfield and supported the work of Tomlin 7

Marlon Pack 

Embed from Getty Images

The heartbeat of Cardiff’s team. When he was missing through injury the Bluebirds stuttered, but the engine is purring nicely now he is back. Scored City’s second 8

Lee Tomlin – Man of the Match

Embed from Getty Images

Quick-thinking, lively and creative playmaker. I love watching him play when he is in this mood 8

Gavin Whyte 

Embed from Getty Images

Aged 23 and still finding his feet at Championship level. There have been plenty of glimpses showing his undoubted quality and he will continue to get better 7

Josh Murphy 

Embed from Getty Images

Another work-in-progress, but there is extra pressure on Murphy to find consistency. He has huge qualities and must start producing for longer spells 6

Robert Glatzel

Embed from Getty Images

Should have scored from a perfect Gavin White cross and battled hard in attack, but this wasn’t his night and he made way for Ward 6

Substitutes:
