Michael Doughty's QPR career looked destined for great things after he made his first team debut in the FA Cup clash against Blackburn Rovers in January 2011.
Having joined the Hoops as a 14-year-old, the midfielder had all the potential in the world to be the home-grown hero that every club craves, but for one reason or another, this didn't materialise.
What followed was a six year spell broken up by eight different loan spells at clubs including Woking, Crawley Town, Aldershot Town, St Johnstone, Stevenage, Gillingham, and and two spells at Swindon Town.
These spells were separated by just 12 appearances for QPR since his debut.
Doughty did get a small sample of the big time, making his Premier League debut against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in 2015, but this was to be a one-off experience.
For whatever reason, the 24-year-old failed to convince the Loftus Road management that he was capable of holding down a regular first team slot in the Championship, with League One very much looking like the midfielder's level.
However with his best years ahead of him, no-one at Queens Park Rangers would bet against Doughty making a huge impression at Peterborough, and finally getting his opportunity to showcase his potential in the second tier of English football.
