Ryan Manning hopes a consistent run of games for QPR can propel him back into the senior Republic of Ireland squad.
The 23-year-old has been ever-present for Rangers this season – his longest unbroken run of games at the club since making his debut almost three years ago.
Ireland boss Mick McCarthy was among the spectators who watched Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Luton at Loftus Road and Manning told West London Sport: “It’s about putting in good performances here which will hopefully lead to an international call-up.
“Over the last couple of years there are a lot of regular internationals who have moved on or retired, so that does open up opportunities for the new generation coming through.”
Manning also reflects on QPR’s third win on the bounce and the change of formation that saw him feature at left wing-back against the Hatters.
