QPR striker Jamie Mackie has said that fellow QPR striker Cissé will find it hard to get back into the first-team due to his good form. Jamie Mackie scored twice for QPR in the 3-2 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers last weekend. Even though it did not help QPR to get anything from the match, it at least showed Mark Hughes that he has a striker who is capable of putting the ball in the back of the net. Scoring goals has been a major problem for QPR under Neil Warnock, and it is a problem that has grown under Mark Hughes.
The arrival of Jamie Mackie up front, though, is expected to solve the problems for QPR at least now. The London club spent heavily on bringing in several players during the January transfer window. It has been estimated that they have spent close to around £ 15 million in the January transfer window alone, with the owner promising even more significant funds in the summer. Most of the players who have been signed by QPR now are strikers, which clearly shows the priority for the remainder of the season. The promise shown by Jamie Mackie will be extremely delightful for manager Mark Hughes.
“I was delighted to be up front too as I haven’t been playing there much. I’ll play wherever I’m told, but I feel my best position is up front, and that is where I can benefit the team most. When you spend a long time on the sidelines like I did, you get to work on other parts of your game, and I did spend a lot of time working in the gym,” Jamie Mackie said after the match against Blackburn. QPR will be up against Fulham in their next match.
