JUST IN: Gareth Ainsworth explains why QPR didn’t need to recruit another striker.

Gareth Ainsworth believes there is no pressing need for QPR to sign another striker.

Rangers have been looking at prospective acquisitions since the transfer window closed, and there are a number of players who are now without a club.

Chris Martin, whose short-term deal at Loftus Road expired at the conclusion of last season, is among them.

Financial Fair Play regulations currently limit QPR.

But, with Lyndon Dykes back from injury and Sinclair Armstrong impressing in the absence of the Scotland front, manager Ainsworth feels they are in good form.

Youngster Rayan Kolli has also impressed since being brought into the first-team squad.

Ainsworth said: “I’ve heard people have been saying ‘Are we getting a striker in?’.

“Well, with Lyndon and Sinclair and Rayan Kolli and Charlie Kelman – and probably Alfie Lloyd underneath them – we’ve got strikers at this club.

“It’s about time some of these young boys got a chance. We’ve given Sinclair the chance and look what he’s done. And Rayan Kolli is doing really well.”

Dykes, who was recently sidelined by a knee injury, is expected to return to the QPR side against Sunderland on Saturday, while Ziyad Larkeche could make his full league debut for the club.
