Junior Hoilett wants Queens Park Rangers to make the play-offs

Queens Park Rangers are currently four points away from the top six places.

Junior Hoilett has told Sky Sports that he believes Queens Park Rangers still have a chance of breaking into the Championship play-offs this season.

The R’s have started the season slowly, and they currently sit down in 12th place in England’s second tier.

However, such is the compact nature of the division that QPR are still only four points away from the top six, and Hoilett is hoping that his side can make the ground up in the coming months.

"Right now, we are just fighting to get back into the promotion race," he said.

"If we could get a play-off spot that would be a great achievement considering the predicament that we are in right now. We are focused, sticking together and taking each game as it comes."

Hoilett was very much out of favour at the start of the season, with former manager Chris Ramsey overlooking him on a regular basis.

Since Ramsey’s sacking, though, he has come back into first-team contention and he was one of the best players under Neil Warnock’s temporary guidance.

The Canadian international also started in Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s first match in charge, which finished as a 0-0 draw against Burnley.

QPR’s next match comes against Brighton & Hove Albion this evening, and if they are able to win against the league leaders, it would send out a statement of intent to the rest of the division.
