VIDEO: Phillips, Kranjcar & Vargas score in QPR training - time to do it on the big stage?

Niko Kranjcar

The Queens Park Rangers trio were one of several stars to produce some impressive finishes during practice.

Now time for Harry Redknapp's side to replicate that form on the Premier League's big stage...

QPR have scored just four goals in the top flight so far this season and the longer their goalscoring troubles continue, the harder it will become to stay in the division.

  GoalsShots TakenChances CreatedPlayed
Newcastle United 5 91 70 6
Stoke City 5 85 61 6
Aston Villa 4 46 31 6
Queens Park Rangers 4 86 69 6
Burnley 1 67 50 6

As Opta stats show, the Rs have scored the second-lowest amount of goals this season - but have taken a staggering 86 shots and created 69 chances.

Their profligacy is thus costing them dearly and, combined with some poor defending, has left them in the danger zone after six games (with the worst goal difference in the Premier League).

It must be of some comfort for fans, then, to see the likes of Nico Kranjcar, Matty Phillips, Eduardo Vargas and more tucking away some impressive finishes during training in the above video. As stated, however, it is now a case of transferring that onto the big stage - and against a goalkeeper other than Rob Green.

QPR travel to West Ham United this weekend, in a game that will mean a lot to boss Redknapp (previously of West Ham) and Rs fans in general, who will want to avoid another hammering at the hands of a London rival like the one they endured at Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season.

Time to get those shooting boots out.
