Sebastian Polter is yet to score a league goal for Queens Park Rangers since joining from Mainz in the summer transfer window.

Sebastian Polter has admitted to Queens Park Rangers' official website that he has found the adjustment to English football difficult. 

Polter joined QPR from Mainz, and there were big expectations of the German striker at Loftus Road.

So far the 24-year-old has struggled to live up to the hype, but Polter believes that in time he will come good for Chris Ramsey's side. 

“It was a tough start for me in England, because it's such a different game over here," he said. 

“It's very physical and very demanding, but I am enjoying every moment.

“I see my future here in England and I am confident I will score goals for QPR when I get the opportunities.”

Polter joined QPR after impressing in the German second tier, where he scored 14 goals in 29 games for FC Berlin, while taking in a temporary spell with the capital club. 

He has failed to score so frequently since moving to England, with his one goal so far coming against Yeovil Town in the Capital One Cup. 

Polter's progress at QPR has also been halted due to a thigh injury, which has restricted his opportunities in the first-team.

However, the target-man centre-forward should be fit again by the time the international break finishes, and he insists that he is ready to play a big role for the R's. 

“I want to play – and I feel as though I'm nearly 100% ready," he added.
