QPR winger Junior Hoilett is hoping to return  from his latest injury setback this weekend and remind manager Harry Redknapp he  has plenty to offer to the Barclays Premier League strugglers.

Hoilett moved to Rangers from Blackburn last  summer but hamstring problems have restricted him to nine league starts for his  new club.Hoilett has only featured  once for the Premier League’s bottom club since Redknapp replaced Mark Hughes at  the helm in November.

Now he is set to return from his latest  hamstring injury and wants to show Redknapp what he has been missing.

‘I started training last week,’ he told the Fulham Chronicle. ‘I’ve been doing some  rehab and strength work and will hopefully be ready for the next match (against  Manchester United).

‘It’s been really frustrating, especially  when a new manager comes in and you can’t show him what you can do because of  injuries.

‘I’ve struggled with the same hamstring  problem. Hopefully it’s sorted now and I can get going. I feel I’m over it  now.’

He added:It’s been difficult. I came back from injury and got  my chance, then got injured again. I’ve just had to stay focused and hopefully  get going again.’

The 22-year-old Hoilett tasted relegation  with Rovers last season and is determined to play his part in completing an  unlikely survival act for QPR.

‘I want to help the team get the results we  need. I haven’t been able to do that when I’m on the sidelines,’ he  said.

‘It’s not a good feeling getting relegated. I  know what it’s like, so it gives me extra drive to make sure it doesn’t happen  again.’
