Here's five things we learned from Millwall's 2-1 defeat to QPR.

Forward still the issue?

Harris was bold.

through injury he may have been forced to make changes but the fans got their wish and saw four changes to the side that lost 2-0 at Blackburn last weekend.

With Molumby and Thompson in midfield they have the creativity and the guile to pass their way up the pitch, but with Smith and Bodvarsson ahead of them it forces the Lions to play a certain way, direct.

Hutchinson, Pearce and Cooper were all guilty of looking forward from the first phase, by-passing the talented middle-men, not what Harris intended I’m sure.

Bialkowski – a one off error?

The goalkeeper arrived with huge expectations in the summer. Frankie Fielding’s injury thrust Bialkowski into his debut off the bench in the opening game of the season and he looked calm, confident, and very at ease in an intimidating atmosphere.

In recent weeks however questions have been raised over the former Ipswich man’s shot-stopping ability, but his temperament was never in doubt. 

Until now.

There was little he could do for the opening goal but his error, right in front of a baying QPR stand, cost Harris’s side a point, possible three such was their ascendancy.

The position between the sticks has been a problem in recent years, think of Dave Martin, Ben Amos and Jordan Archer.

Can Bialkowksi bounce back from this?

You’d hope so.

Jed Wallace – the only threat?

Each week Wallace seemingly continues to be the sole attacking threat.

The number of times the a forward relieved the pressure on his side was incredible. Not only does he relieve pressure he puts his side on the front foot with it.

There’s nothing wrong with counter attacking football but when such is the speed of Wallace, or the lack of speed of his strike partners, there’s only so far he can take his side forward alone.

Clinical – Quality in the finish

Millwall were poor first half, inviting pressure on and looking like the away side, yet never looked like conceding.

Second half, Harris’s men, undoubtedly with some stern words in their ear at the break, took the game to QPR and looked to finally have a foot hold in the game.

Against the run of play, Wells pounced on a defensive lapse and instinctively whipped a ball beyond Bialkowski.

That seems to be the difference between Millwall and other sides this season.

In Smith and Bodvarsson they have solid line-leaders, but goal-getters or strikers who need just one chance they are not.

If QPR’s first goal came as a sucker punch, the timing of the second couldn’t be any worse having just restored parity.

QPR for the Premier League?

This Is Local London: (PA)(PA)

In Mark Warburton they have a crafty operator. A huge overhaul in the summer they retained the services of some key personnel in Wells, Eze, Leistner and Cameron.

They weren’t expecting a lot at Loftus Road this year but Warburton has a side who know what they’re doing.

They were very fortunate with the victory at The Den, but they continue to win, and now find themselves quietly sneaking up into fourth.

Promotion contenders?  You’d expect so.
