Ilias Chair made a dream start to life at League Two Stevenage after being loaned out by Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

The phrase ‘dream debut’ came to mind when watching Ilias Chair in action for Stevenage on Saturday.

The 21-year-old midfielder moved to Broadhall Way from QPR on the final day of the January transfer window and, less than 48 hours later, he was lining up in the heart of the midfield for Dino Maamria’s side in a 1-0 win against Yeovil Town in League Two.

Alex Revell scored the winner against the Glovers but Chair was the star of the show. He ran the game from the centre of the park, impressing with his creativity and work rate while drawing comparisons with one-time Stevenage hero Luke Freeman – who ironically is now a Queens Park Rangers player.

So the gushing praise from Boro fans on Twitter should be music to the ears of QPR with Chair tipped for a bright future at Loftus Road.

A skilful midfielder who has represented Morocco at U23 level despite being born in Belgium, Chair is one a number of highly-rated young talents who could provide the platform for an exciting future at Loftus Road.

And the rapid rise of Eberechi Eze gives Chair a fine example to follow.
