Junior Hoilett after Rangers’ 3-0
JUNIOR Hoilett’s smile said it all at the fill-time whistle, after his stunning solo effort help Rangers on their way
to a comprehensive 3-0 west London derby win over Brentford.
“It was good to give the fans something to smile about in a London derby,” said Hoilett “And my goal makes it all the sweeter for me.
“It was a great win – the fans deserved it, and I think the players did, too.
“We’ve been working hard as a team, and the manager has been working hard to build a structure in training.
“We’re benefitting from that now, and have got some good results recently.”
He added: “I was happy we got the three points. I just can’t wait for the next game now.
“Every player gave their all – and ran the extra mile for each other. It was good to keep another clean sheet for Alex [Smithies], as well.
“We’re really happy after a good week.”
Hoilett has impressed of late – and increased his goals tally to six for the season with the strike against Brentford.
The winger chose to pay tribute to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink – who was appointed Rangers boss in December – following this latest victory, QPR’s fourth in five home fixtures.
Hoilett also talked us through his first-half goal, saying: “Ale [Faurlin] made a run to open up space – I drove forward, saw the far corner and just went for it.
“It’s as good a goal as I’ve scored for QPR in my time here.
“Since day one, when he (Hasselbaink) came in, he’s put his belief in me. He’s given me a run of games and I’m just trying to repay him.
“I think we’re seeing what can happen when a good manager instils confidence into a player like me.”
