Trialist nets brace in QPR win
HARROW Borough striker Troy Hewitt scored twice for QPR’s reserve side in a behind-closed-doors match on Tuesday afternoon.
Akos Buzsaky played for an hour of the friendly against Crystal Palace’s second string as Rangers ran out 4-1 winners, with Heidar Helgsuson and Dan Shittu also scoring.
Buzsaky is working his way back to fitness after a knee injury and returned to action in a friendly against Tottenham last week, featuring for 45 minutes.
His latest appearance is another step towards a first-team comeback for the Hungarian, who has been sidelined since October.
Hewitt, who has banged in a total of 20 goals for Borough this season, came on as a second-half substitute against Spurs and was deployed on the right wing.
But this time the 20-year-old played the full 90 minutes in his preferred central position alongside Helguson, who is back in contention after a groin problem.
A very similar player to Blackpool’s DJ Campbell, Hewitt was being tracked by a number of clubs before QPR showed an interest.
