Ian Holloway has suggested that Ariel Borysiuk could yet have a future at QPR.
Rangers have been looking to offload him on a permanent basis and are keen to bring in another defensive midfielder.
But Holloway says he was impressed with Borysiuk’s performance during Saturday’s pre-season friendly at Peterborough and might not need to bring in an alternative after all.
“I thought Ariel did really well,” said Holloway, who wants to make a number of signings in the next couple of weeks.
“I had to make some decisions last year and I’ve said to him ‘If you come back and pass it the way I want you to do and run around the pitch a bit…’
“He showed me that he wants to play for this club. What more can I ask? Hopefully that might solve a few things if I can get him in there as well.”
R’s assessing Hall injury
Grant Hall is being assessed after missing the game at Peterborough because of tendonitis.
Jordan Cousins and Sean Goss also missed the match and defender Joel Lynch, who has been nursing a knock, featured after coming through a fitness test.
Cousins is being slowly eased back after a long-term thigh problem, while Goss was also left out on the advice of the Rangers medical staff.
“We’ve had Hally pulled out yesterday and I almost didn’t have Lynchy as well,” Holloway explained.
“We’ve protected Jordan and Gossy we’ve protected as well. Jordan has worked so hard during the summer to get himself fit.”
The Rangers squad will travel to Germany next week for friendlies against FC Union Berlin and Lokomotive Leipzig.
