QPR boss Neil Warnock felt Crawley Town offered the physical aspect he wanted after their successful of Italy last week.
The Rangers boss was happy with his players mentality and believes his trialists did themselves no harm in the 4-2 victory.
“You could see how both teams have improved and I thought it was what we needed,” said Warnock.
“I think we’ve a different type of games in Italy and I felt we needed a physical aspect.
“I thought we were professional and pleased with our attitude.

“You’ve got to look at as many people as you can,” admitted the boss.
“I’ve been very happy with Brian Murphy, he’s been with us now for ten days and defender Bruno Perone as well.
“Bruno’s got a lot of pluses and a few minuses which we’ve got to iron out, but he can also play midfield and I’m quite pleased with him.
“He’s not in a rush to move on as there are two or three clubs after him already, so I’ll probably make a decision by the end of next week.”
DJ Campbell has been heavily linked with a move to Loftus Road this week but the manager admits nothing has been finalised just yet.
“He’s one of the players we’re looking to bring in if I can”, admitted the gaffer.
“We’d like to bring in a striker, a wide player and a goalkeeper.”
Winger Jason Puncheon has also been linked with a move to Rangers over the past few days but Warnock admits there could be other deals in place.
“There’s nothing really about him - we’ve spoken to other clubs to see what the situation is but I’ve got nothing concrete to tell,” said the manager.
“Puncheon has been one of those names but we’ve got a few irons in the fire so we’re cut and dry with anybody at the moment.
