QPR boss Hasselbaink fancies Sunderland Cup upset

QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink fancies their chances against EFL Cup opponents Sunderland.

Though the Hoops have struggled in recent games themselves, Hasselbaink believes the Londoners can progress into the last 16.

The former Leeds, Chelsea and Middlesbrough striker told qpr.co.uk: “Sunderland are in transition.

“Their manager came in late to the job in pre-season and that is never easy.

“We all have our difficulties, and he has his at the moment, but they are a Premier League side with a Premier League.

“We will see if it's a good time to play them on Wednesday night, but we certainly believe it's a game we can win."
