Ben Gladwin has admitted on Queens Park Rangers’ official site that he isn’t fit enough to show his top form.
Gladwin has endured a difficult first season at Loftus Road, where he has rarely featured for the London club.
And the 23-year-old admits that his lack of first-team football has affected his performance levels, as he doesn’t feel match-fit.
“My fitness isn't quite where it needs to be at the moment having not played too much of late, but I'm working on it,” the former Swindon Town man admitted.
“I need to keep working on it, work hard over the summer, and be ready to hit the ground running in pre-season.”
Gladwin has played in QPR’s last two matches, and he looks set to feature again before the season finishes - as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink experiments with his options.
Gladwin has made just two Championship starts for QPR this season, and he has only made five appearances in total.
The youngster has been loaned out to both Swindon Town and Bristol City throughout the campaign, and his failure to find a settled home has made things difficult.
Gladwin will hope to play a more prominent role next season, as QPR plot a clear out over the summer transfer window.
Rangers are likely to have a far more streamlined squad next term, as they look to cut costs to cope with life in the Championship.
