Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink confirms Junior Hoilett will return for Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers take on Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has confirmed to Get West London that Junior Hoilett will return to Queens Park Rangers’ side on Tuesday evening.

Hasselbaink made a number of changes for QPR’s match against Cardiff City last weekend, as he tried to experiment with his side.

And the Dutch boss has suggested that he will tinker again on Tuesday against Brighton & Hove Albion, with Hoilett one of the players expected to come back into contention.

"I put Junior on the bench for the game at Cardiff, who has been magnificent,” he said.

"He deserves to come back and there will be a few other changes as well."

Hoilett was one of QPR’s stand out players over Hasselbaink’s initial time in charge, but his form has dipped more recently.

The winger has not been quite as impactful, but his class at Championship level has been proven already this season.

Conor Washington could also be one of the players who gets the nod for QPR in midweek, as Hasselbaink looks to help the striker find his feet at Loftus Road.

Washington joined QPR from Peterborough United in the January transfer window, but he is yet to open his goalscoring account for the London club.

If QPR are to win on Tuesday evening, they could move up to ninth in the Championship table.
