Kane: It was great to get on the pitch

TODD Kane was delighted to make his full league debut in QPR’s home draw with Huddersfield Town at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday.

A 1-1 draw - in what was Rangers’ first game at the newly-named stadium - ensured the R’s continued their fine start to the new campaign, claiming four points from a possible six against promotion hopefuls Stoke City and Huddersfield.

Speaking after the match, the former Chelsea defender spoke with pride after making his full league debut for Rangers. He told www.qpr.co.uk: “It was great to get on the pitch, obviously with the result as well I was buzzing.

"I tried to make an impact when I came on, I got told to keep wide down the right-hand side and play my own game and that’s exactly what I like to think I did.”

Following Karlan Grant’s early second-half spot-kick, Grant Hall grabbed a late equaliser for QPR, ensuring the R’s were able to build on their fine start to the season at Stoke City the last time out and start to build momentum up for the season ahead.

He said: “I am really excited for what is happening this season, the lads and everyone at the club have a great feeling and that’s why I came here. I can’t wait for what happens.”

Rangers' attention now switches to the Carabao Cup as they host Bristol City in the first round and Kane added: “Obviously, I want to start Tuesday but in the bigger picture it’s down to the gaffer and whatever side he picks, whether I am starting or coming on from the bench I will be ready.”
