This time two weeks ago things were looking less than good for Harry Redknapp and his struggling R’s after they slipped to yet another defeat, this time at the hands of the league leaders Manchester United.
Fast forward two weeks and two wins later against Southampton and Sunderland and things are looking a bit brighter around Loftus Road as they R’s go in search of safety.
Sometimes in football it is difficult to put your finger on just how a team manage to turn things around when they looked doomed for the for the drop and while this could be said of QPR’s recent purple patch if you look closely there are one or two things we can put our finger on.
Harry made a number of changes two weeks ago and to good effect, with many wondering what the logic was behind dropping Adel Taarabt, Harry had a plan, and it would seem that Junior Hoilett has come into the side in place of Taarabt and is flourishing week on week.
The former Blackburn man has had an indifferent time at Loftus Road since his switch but having been handed a place in the first team he seems determined not to waste it.
Hoilett has been playing some good attacking football over the last two weeks and has been rewarded for his efforts with an assist in each of the games, which you can’t help but take notice of.
QPR face another must win game this weekend against fellow strugglers Aston Villa and while the result is far from assured, we can certainly expect goals in this one and if the R’s are to trouble Villa the Hoilett is the man to do it.
