Stricken QPR star is handed a boost

Dyer will be given a chance to prove his fitness in time for next season

Kieron Dyer still has a future at QPR and should be fit in time for next season, Mark Hughes has revealed.

Dyer managed only seven minutes of QPR’s opening-day 4-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers before a foot injury ended his season, leading to doubts over his future at Loftus Road.

However, Hughes insists the former West Ham and Newcastle man can still prove his worth despite a demoralising start to his QPR career.

“He’s still doing his rehab. He’s off his crutches and we’re hoping that he will be fit and ready for pre-season,” said Hughes. “We’re hoping that he has the chance to show what he can do.”
