Hoilett preparing for comeback

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. The Canada international 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 told the Fulham Chronicle: "I started training last week. I've been doing some rehab and strength work and will hopefully be ready for the next match [against Manchester United]."

He went on: "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.

"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."
