Junior Hoilett thinks QPR can put their awful start to the season behind them

Junior Hoilett is confident QPR’s nightmare start to the season will soon be forgotten.

The Hoops will be hoping to claim their first victory of the season when they host League 1 side Walsall in the second round of the Capital One Cup tonight.

The disastrous 5-0 thrashing by Swansea on the opening day of the Premier League was followed by a steady 1-1 draw at Norwich, and former Blackburn man Hoilett thinks Mark HUghes new signings just need more time to gel.

“The team stayed compact and we got our result away from home,” he said.

“We’re in the rebuilding process and we’re moving forward, so it was a great result picking up points.

“Of course we had what happened last week in the back of our minds, but we got the point and now we want to push on for a result.

“We’re building as a team and it takes time to get used to each other’s style of process.”
