John Eustace said QPR’s goals in the 2-0 win at Stoke highlighted the squad’s blend of youth and experience.
Osman Kakay scored his first league goal, sealing the victory after Charlie Austin had netted for the seventh time since returning to Rangers on loan.
Assistant manager Eustace said; “That’s the mix and the beauty of the squad
“We’ve got some fantastic senior players in the group and we’ve got some really good, honest, young, exciting players.
“Ossie’s had a really good season and you could see what the goal meant to him and the rest of the squad who celebrated it with him.”
Kakay has been enjoying an extended run in the side, keeping Todd Kane out.
Kane has been overlooked since manager Mark Warburton became aware of comments by the right-back in an interview in which he insisted he was a better player than Kakay – also claiming he was wanted by Sheffield United for £13m while the QPR youth product was playing on loan in the Scottish second tier.
“Ossie does a lot of unnoticed work in the team and is a pleasure to work with every day,” Eustace said.
“He’s come through the system at the club and we’re very proud of him.”
Warburton did not attend the match as he is recovering after recent knee surgery.
