Chery wants positive finish to season

IN-FORM attacker Tjaronn Chery believes a positive conclusion to the current campaign will stand QPR in good stead for next season.


The R’s travel to play-off hopefuls Cardiff City on Saturday and Chery – who is the Hoops’ joint top-scorer with ten goals to his name – is calling on his team-mates to continue their ever-improving form with a positive performance and result in Wales this weekend.

"This will be a really hard game for us,” he told www.qpr.co.uk

"Cardiff are fighting for the play-offs and probably need to win this game to keep up their top-six chances.

"However, we want to win every game we play and we believe we are playing well at the moment.

"We feel we are on a good run and we want to finish the season as strongly as possible.

"We want to create a winning mentality and a good feeling for next season.”

He added: "We are working very hard in training every day.

"Our fitness levels are improving all of the time, and we are coming on strong in games now.

"We've scored late goals in recent weeks, and that is down to our ability to keep going right to the end.”

Rangers head into the clash against the Bluebirds buoyed by a last-minute victory over Charlton Athletic last weekend – a game won by a fantastic stoppage-time goal from Nasser El Khayati.

Chery, who again impressed in the number.10 role, was delighted for his fellow Dutchman, adding: "It was a really nice win for us.

"Last minute victories are always great to be part of – especially when you aren't at your best, which we weren't on Saturday.

"I was really pleased for Nasser.

"For his first goal for QPR to be a winner was great. For it to arrive in the last minute of a London derby – at Loftus Road – is even better for him.

"It was a lovely finish and we were all very happy for him afterwards.”

Chery is enjoying a purple patch in front of goal at the moment, with six goals in his late ten appearances for the R’s.

He attributes much of that success to his flourishing partnership with Sebastian Polter.

"I'm really pleased with how things are going at the moment,” he said.

"My first ten goals have really pleased me, especially because I haven't played every week throughout the season.

"I am confident that I will score and create goals if I'm given the opportunity, so I'm really enjoying my time in the team at the moment.

"I feel we are improving as a team all of the time.”

He added: "Myself and Seb are working hard every day to improve the partnership.

"I am from Holland, he is from Germany – and the football in both of those countries is similar, so we understand each other.

"We complement each other well.

"It is an early partnership, but the signs are positive for next season.

“We have some good attacking options, so we know we have to keep improving, because there is always another player who wants the shirt.”
