KIERON Dyer is a man on a mission.
The 33 year-old - who was arguably the R's star performer against Spurs on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane - is ready to repay the faith shown in him by boss Mark Hughes, as he looks to put his injury nightmares of years gone by behind him.
Dyer told www.qpr.co.uk: "When Mark arrived here he said straight away that he wanted to give me another chance and that’s what has happened.
"That was a huge vote of confidence for me.
"I played 60 minutes in midweek and another 90 on Sunday, so I’m getting the minutes under my belt.
”I haven’t missed a training session this season and been available for every game, so things are going great for me.
”We just need to start getting a few points on the board and everything will be falling into place.”
Dyer entered the fray as a third minute replacement for Jose Bosingwa on Sunday and excelled in a head-to-head battle with Gareth Bale.
Dyer added: “I started my career at Ipswich at right back and made my England debut in the same position.
"I haven’t played there for a while though. I was sitting on the bench, enjoying a cup of tea, and the next thing I know I’m getting thrown in at right-back against Gareth Bale - so that was a good test for my hamstrings!
"I’m gutted we didn’t get the three points but, from a personal view, it’s going well.
”I feel 100 per cent.
"I felt I was up and down like a young Kyle Walker, especially in the first half. The hamstrings held up well, and playing against one of the best wingers in the world was a good test."
Everyone at QPR certainly hopes it will be a case of mission accomplished for the popular former Newcastle United and Ipswich Town ace.
