“I feel he has done a good job and that he gives us more fluidity up front than Lyndon Dykes.
“I feel like Roberts should definitely be the main man, who is now number nine for us for the foreseeable future.
“You have to give him at least a few matches to let him adapt to this position and that doesn’t just mean he’s going to be there on his own too,
“You have Chris Willock and Chair Elias playing on either side and that allows Roberts to drift left, right and center and so gives us more fluidity and dynamism and hopefully Roberts can adapt quickly and he can be the man to put away some of the chances we’ve missed so far this season.

While Roberts has yet to score for QPR in the tournament, he has shown some signs of promise this semester.
Roberts currently averages 2.1 passes per game at this level and has completed 20.3 passes per game (according to who scored).

Provided Roberts, Dykes and Sinclair Armstrong can push each other to new heights in terms of their development, they could potentially have a positive impact on QPR’s fortunes in the second tier.
