Ben Gladwin admits his first season at Queens Park Rangers has been unsettling

Ben Gladwin has made just five appearances for Queens Park Rangers so far.

Ben Gladwin has admitted to Queens Park Rangers official site that his first season at Loftus Road has been unsettling.

Gladwin joined QPR from Swindon Town last summer, and he has struggled to make an impact at the London club.

The 23-year-old was one of the stars of Rangers' pre-season, but he failed to break into the team once the competitive action started and ended up well out of favour.

Gladwin was then sent on loans spells to both Swindon and Bristol City, before returning to QPR last month.

The attacking midfielder was given a run-out in QPR’s most recent match against Charlton Athletic, which they won 2-1, and he is now hoping to push on.

“This is the club I signed for in the summer, it’s the club I want to play for and it’s where I want to be,” the attacking midfielder said.

“This season has been a bit unsettling. I have been here and there, but that’s because I want to play football.”

Gladwin has played just five times in all competitions for QPR this season, and he is yet to score for the club.

He could be given more chances to impress between now and the end of the campaign, though, as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink looks to asses his squad.

Rangers have little left to play for this season - with the London side destined to finish in mid-table - and Hasselbaink may take the opportunity to experiment with all his options, as he looks to build for next term.
