I’ve been wondering for some time if players at QPR were going to be able to step up in the absence of key players.
And since the departure of Nahki Wells, part of that responsibility to find the back of the net has fallen on the shoulders of Jordan Hugill, who has now started the last four games for QPR and has only managed to find the back of the net once.
And it looks as if the frustration at his lack of production has started to make its way into the QPR fan base, especially after his display against Swansea City in which he only managed two shots in the entire game, and both of them were off target.
Possibly because he’s got such big boots to fill with Wells being the club’s top scorer this season, or maybe he’s just not quite recaptured his form at Preston North End, but whatever it is, it needs to be sorted out soon, because the knives are certainly out amongst this set of supporters.
Dude! Hugill up top alone does not score goals! Play one of the youngsters up there with him and we will score goals, signed by anyone who knows anything about football #qpr #hugillisanumber10 #nogoals #newblood

A good point but unbelievably poor quality game tonight. We were better than them but that’s not saying much. Hugill missed 2 sitters, love his work rate and strength but he’s a poor finisher. Hopefully form picks up… #QPR #SWAQPR

Hugill isn’t the same player we got at the start of the season, not sure what’s up with him #QPR

Jordan Hugill, class at being in the right place, just so hit and miss with his finishing…

What do QPR need to fix more?
Let’s just hope he can take their advice, otherwise we might be struggling for goals for a very long time.
