QPR manager Ian Holloway is looking forward to testing his young squad against difficult opposition when they take on Union Berlin this afternoon.

The afternoon will see a reunion with former striker Sebastien Polter, but Ollie is adamant he is only focusing on ensuring his team are ready for their league opener against Reading on August 5th.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I am taking my whole squad over there for what I, again, consider to be another training session, just like last week’s game at Peterborough was a training session for both teams.

“I am thoroughly looking forward to it. I was pleased with how we did against Peterborough, how the group understood what I wanted, and I liked the way our younger lads applied themselves in a QPR shirt.

“We have got a young squad, which is pleasing but what’s important is that we get them all to blend. Our time in Germany is another opportunity for us to do that, and to work on certain things, looking ahead to the first game of the season against Reading.”
