Bothroyd was squeezed out of QPR during the summer.
He told Sport360: "Well, Mark Hughes said that he thought I should go on loan, get some goals, get match-fit and see what happens in December. I’m a professional, I understand the situation. There’s no point throwing my dummy out and complaining – he has his opinion and he’s entitled to it. I still have total respect for the manager and the staff, and although they’re not having the best time, I’m sure they’ll turn it around."
