Yeni Ngbakoto bagged himself a couple of assists and a goal on Saturday for Queens Park Rangers and is enjoying his time under boss Ian Holloway.

It was perhaps a slow start for the creative midfielder to his career in England but he has got to grips with the Championship as the season has gone on.

Ngbakoto nearly missed out on taking the spot-kick against Rotherham United at the weekend, with team-mate Idrissa Sylla initially grabbing hold of the ball.

But the striker unselfishly handed it to Ngbakoto, with the team spirit extremely high in the camp under boss Holloway.

“I had a good feeling for the penalty,” said Ngbakoto, speaking to QPR's website

“I said that to Idrissa and he gave me the ball, which was nice of him.

“He let me take it, he was happy for me to take it, and that is great, because it shows the spirit we have.

“I wanted to score and thankfully I did.”

Yeni Ngbakoto in action for the Hoops

The run of five wins in seven games has lifted Rangers away from the relegation zone and the side are targeting a top ten finish.

Ngbakoto now links up with Congo during the international break and when he comes back, he'll have to be at his best against the likes of Derby County, Aston Villa and Brighton.

And he is certainly enjoying his role under Holloway's style of play.

“It’s going well for me now,” said the midfield star. “I’ve worked really hard after a difficult start for me here.

“The manager and his staff are really pushing me. I feel good. I’m scoring goals, providing assists and we’re winning matches, so all is good.

"We deserved the win (on Saturday) and the final scoreline was fantastic for us.

“We worked hard for this result, so I’m so happy for me, my team-mates and the fans, who supported us fantastically.

“To score five goals at home is brilliant and it continues our really good home form.”
