Mark Hughes believes Djibil Cisse will deliver for QPR in their vital game against the striker’s former club Liverpool at Loftus Road tonight.
Cisse was unhappy at being shown the door at Anfield and Rangers boss Hughes says the Frenchman will want to prove a point.
Hughes predicted that Cisse would score in the recent game at Bolton, which he duly did – although the team’s 2-1 defeat means they are now in the bottom three and desperately need a victory.
“Every player when they go up against their former clubs want to make a good impression,” said Hughes. “Maybe we might gain from a little bit of an extra edge to his general play.
“Given that it’s Liverpool and one of the top clubs in the Premier League, there’ll be an extra spark from Djib.”
