Maybe Patrick Agyemang will get his wish as a result of the narrow 1-0 exit to Manchester United last night.

The returning Rangers striker said beforehand, and without batting an eyelid, that three points on Saturday at home to Burnley would be preferable to the next round of the Carling Cup if forced to choose.

Agye was a 33rd minute sub for injured Akos Buzsaky at Old Trafford, but in truth, the one chance that fell to Emanuel Ledesma towards the end was the one chance a gritty QPR performance deserved.

Their illustrious opposition was filled with lesser-known names that still swept forward. Possebon anyone?

But it was down to keeper Radek Cerny to keep Rs in it until Carlos Tevez converted a 76th minute penalty courtesy of Peter Ramage's foul on Danny Welbeck.

Agyemang hopes he can now claim back a starting place after recovering from a groin injury that's kept him out of the side most of October.

He said: "It might have been tougher had the forwards got loads of goals, but they haven't been scoring as regularly as they would like, so maybe I can now chip in with a few goals and assists.

"I haven't set myself any targets though for how many I would like to score - staying injury free is my only target at the moment."
