QPR boss buoyed by arrival of Cisse and Zamora

QPR manager Mark Hughes is thrilled that he has been able to bring two quality strikers to the club.

The West Londoners have been boosted by the winter arrivals of Djibril Cisse from Lazio and Bobby Zamora from Fulham and Hughes is looking forward to getting the duo together.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing them play together, they've got great qualities that will complement each other," Hughes said.

"I think Bobby enjoyed his time under me at Fulham. The type of work we gave him helped him and we supported him when he was out through injury.

"When he came back in the second half of last season he was exceptional and was a big reason why we ended up eighth in the Premier League. "If he can have a similar impact in the second half of this season that will augur well for us because we need to win games and score goals, that's why he is here.

"Djibril's style of play is made to measure for the Premier League. In Italy the style of play was too slow, he's very much a Premier League player in my opinion.

"If you look at his goalscoring record he has played just over 450 games and scored 220 goals, at top clubs, and not many strikers have that goals-to-game ratio.

"That's what got me excited about bringing him here. He's fitted in extremely well and he's glad to be back in the Premier League."
