QPR boss hails returning star
Dyer ‘an excellent player,’ says Hughes, as defender makes his comeback from injury
Mark Hughes insists Kieron Dyer still has a role to play at QPR after the defender made his comeback from injury on Tuesday night.
Dyer managed only seven minutes of last season’s opener against Bolton Wanderers, before a foot injury brought his campaign to an end.
He finally returned to action in QPR’s 3-0 pre-season win over Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night, setting up Nedum Onuoha’s late goal.
And Hughes is now planning to ease the 33-year-old back into action.

“It was brilliant for him. It’s been a long time,” said Hughes. “We’ll go easy with him, it’s important we don’t rush him back too quickly.
“He had about 20 minutes and we’ll try to build that up. Kieron’s an excellent player and if I can get him anywhere near the level he was at before his injury I’ll be delighted.”
