The name of Idrissa Sylla is on the lips of QPR fans after making an excellent case for a place in Ian Holloway's side.

The Guinean was a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up against Fulham, before retaining his place in Ollie's team for Saturday's trip to Sunderland.

Not only did he start, but the 26-year-old was a constant threat, putting a shaky Black Cats defence under pressure with his work ethic, physical presence and ability to capitalise on even minor mistakes made by the hosts.

He also managed to get on the scoresheet for the Hoops, taking advantage of a crowded six yard box from a corner.

What Sylla has shown in the last two games is exactly what we know the striker is capable of; the only issue is that we don't see it nearly enough.

We know he has it in his locker, but the key is for Sylla to produce this week in-week out, and not just when the occasions suits.

He was QPR's best player on Saturday, and if he can show that form on a consistent basis, there's no doubt that he's capable of being the Hoops' number one striker.
