Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink suggests he'll make changes to Queens Park Rangers' side

Queens Park Rangers have just five matches remaining in their Championship season.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has told Queens Park Rangers’ official site that he wants to give some of his fringe players first-team chances before the end of the season.

Hasselbaink has decisions to make ahead of the summer transfer window, with QPR set to make a number of changes.

Rangers have nine players with their contracts expiring at the end of the season, and they may also look to sell some of their higher earners who still remain from their Premier League days.

Hasselbaink has suggested that he wants to create a younger squad at Loftus Road, which has a British core.

However, the Dutch boss is keen to give everyone a chance to impress and he has suggested that he could make alterations to his starting line-up, with the pressure off his side.

“I need to give some other players experience, but I want to give them experience in a very-strong side,” Hasselbaink said.

“That is the best for them. If you make too many changes and give them experience in a weaker side, it’s not right for them – it can do more harm than good.”

QPR are destined to finish in mid-table this season, as they have rarely threatened to mount a push for the play off spaces.

Hasselbaink will not want to disrupt the momentum that is being created at Loftus Road, though.

QPR have put together an encouraging run of results recently, to help build optimism for next campaign.

QPR’s next fixture comes against Cardiff City on Saturday.
