Dyer hoping to repay QPR faith

Kieron Dyer is intent on repaying the faith that has been shown by QPR.

The injury-prone midfielder has been given an opportunity to resurrect his career by R's boss Mark Hughes with two appearances in the Premier League so far.

Dyer has missed a lot of football over the past few years but is now on a varied training program so he can remain at the disposal of the West London club.

"I have been hammered many times over the years and you do develop a thick skin. I just thought if I get another chance I am going to prove everyone wrong," the 33-year old told the London Evening Standard.

"I am getting a lot of minutes now and if I stay on the pitch, I'm going to prove a few doubters wrong.

"As soon as the manager came in, he said, 'I want you to get fit and I will give you another chance. I know what you can do because I played against you in the past'.

"I have been put on a special training programme and I haven't missed a session this season so it must be working."

He added regarding the QPR deal last summer: "That was a huge vote of confidence for me. I hope I have a lot of games left in me.

"These are exciting times for QPR and I am looking to the future, not the past."
