Gabriele Angella has admitted to Queens Park Rangers’ official site that he has started to feel much more comfortable at Loftus Road recently.
Angella joined QPR on loan from Watford last summer, but he failed to make much of an impact during his initial months with the London club.
The Italian defender made just eight starts during his first six months with Rangers.
However, he has now started in QPR’s last six matches and looked at home in the heart of their defence.
“It can be difficult to play one or two games, be out of the side, back in, it can be hard to show what you can do when it is like this,” Angella admitted.
“But when you have continuity and you are playing regularly, it makes things better. I feel like this now, I feel better physically and mentally and I hope I can continue in this way.”
Angella’s inclusion in QPR’s team has coincided with their best run of form under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s stewardship so far.
Like Angella, Hasselbaink made a slow start at QPR after taking over, but there have been major signs of encouragement in recent weeks.
Rangers have lost just once in their last six matches, and over that time they have conceded just twice.
QPR’s strong run of results has lifted them up to 11th place in the Championship table, but they still are 11 points back from the play offs, meaning their chances of being promoted this season look slim.
