Rs finish Championship season at Whites on Sunday

Queens Park Rangers bring the curtain down on their Championship campaign at Leeds United this Sunday, but Bright Osayi-Season probably does not want the season to come to an end.

The 20-year-old, a summer signing from League One outfit Blackpool, netted his first goal for the Rs in a 3-1 win at home to Birmingham City last weekend.

Osayi-Samuel will hope the goal earns him consecutive starts for just the second time since moving to Loftus Road.

And if the winger is given the nod at Elland Road on Sunday, he hopes to use it as a platform for a successful term next season.

“I want to keep playing games and keep improving on the training ground and hopefully that will lead to more starts,” he told the club website.

“I’ve had to be patient and work a lot on the training ground, but hopefully I can play against Leeds, and that will give me a lot of confidence going into the summer and next season.”

Osayi-Samuel has had to bide his time for his first goal in blue and white hoops after joining on the final day of last summer’s transfer window.

The youngster’s first strike for QPR came in his 17th appearance for Ian Holloway’s men.

His goal certainly would have put a smile on the faces of the Rs fans, and Osayi-Samuel says he wants to keep giving the support reasons to get behind him.

“It’s good to see the fans cheering me on and it gives me the confidence to take on my man and help the team,” he added.

“At Loftus Road the ground is really tight so I can sometimes hear people say ‘take him on’ and it gives me belief that they know I can get past my man. I want to keep making them happy.”

Another goal this weekend at Leeds would certainly see the fans get even more behind Osayi-Samuel.

And the 20-year-old knows he has to add more goals to his game as he continues to develop.

“It meant a lot to score because I have played a few games now, and it just feels good to get the first and hopefully there are many more to come,” he said.

“I know I need to get into the box more, it’s been pointed out to me that I’m not actually in the box often so I’m restricting my chances of scoring – it’s definitely something I am working on.”
