Matt Ingram fully justified QPR’s faith in bringing him from Wycombe in January - and ditching further interest in £1.6 million rated Dan Bentley at Southend.

Watch Grant Hall score first QPR goal against Reading along with string of fine saves from Matt Ingram in the video above.

The former Chairboy had to wait his opportunity behind Alex Smithes before making his debut in April against Cardiff where he kept a clean sheet - and held on to the keeper’s jersey to the end of the season.

In fact modest Ingram conceded only three times as Rs picked up a win against Bristol City in the final game, and draws against Cardiff and Reading.

However, the 22-year-old says he’s under no illusions for next season.

“I’ve been given the opportunity, but as the gaffer said, Alex has been playing really well, and I’ve got no qualms chasing and nipping at his heels,” Ingrams added.

“Everyone wants to have one of the 11 shirts on a Saturday, and I’m no different, and I’m going to keep pushing him.

I need to be ready. It only takes one sending off; one bad injury, god forbid, and I’ve got to be ready. Hopefully, I’ve taken it and the gaffer was pleased.”

Here's Ingram's take on how he beat Bentley to Loftus Road.
