Nahki Wells Looking For First QPR Goal
Nahki Wells may be earning appreciation from QPR fans for his performances, but the striker has yet to send them into jubilation by finding the back of the net. The Clarets loanee has insisted a double-figure goal tally remains in his grasp a quarter of the way through the season.
Wells was part of a double swoop made by boss Steve McClaren after the team’s sluggish start to the Championship campaign, joining the Loftus Road outfit on loan from Burnley and being followed through the door by Brighton & Hove Albion forward Tomer Hemed.
The Bermudan International has plenty of experience in the second tier of English football scoring 44 goals in 143 league appearances for old club Huddersfield Town which paved the way for a move to Turf Moor. QPR head to strugglers Ipswich Town on Saturday following the conclusion of the international break. The same fixtures last season finished in a 0-0 draw on Boxing Day.
Speaking about his current position Nahki Wells said, “It’s only a matter of time before I get my season up and running goal-wise, because performance-wise I feel as though I’m doing everything I need to do.
I’m playing regular football, so as a minimum, I’m looking at double figures in terms of goals. We have to believe we can get into the play-offs and achieve promotion, you have to believe it’s possible. I’ve settled in and it’s still been a short period of time, but it feels like I’ve been here a longer. Maybe that’s because they’re have been so many games in short succession.”
