QPR forward vows: “I want to start every week”
Mackie believes he is proving his worth in the QPR side
Jamie Mackie is determined to make himself a fixture in the QPR side this season.
Forward Mackie has started each of the Rs’ last three games and has been one of Neil Warnock’s most impressive players, having a hand in goals against Stoke and Norwich.
The Scotland international made Warnock’s 25-man squad at the last minute after recovering from a broken leg which kept him out of action for nine months.
With the manager set to sign new players in January, places will be under scrutiny, but Mackie (pictured) wants to make himself irreplaceable.

Meanwhile, QPR are sweating on the fitness of winger Shaun Wright-Phillips for Saturday’s clash with West Bromwich Albion at Loftus Road. Wright-Phillips suffered a foot injury in the defeat at Carrow Road, leaving the ground on crutches.
Warnock confirmed there is no break, but said the player will undergo ‘extensive treatment’ this week.
