GOALKEEPER Seny Dieng is loving life as QPR’s number one, having bided his time to earn his spot between the posts.
Having joined the R’s in August 2017, it took more than three years for him to make his Rangers debut. Since his bow, which came against Middlesbrough on September 26th, he hasn’t looked back.
Dieng has kept three clean sheets in nine matches so far this season and speaking to The Loftcast this week he explained how much he is enjoying himself.
“I have been waiting for quite a long time to play for this club and I am very pleased,” he said.
“At the start, it was hard for me. Alex Smithies was here and was doing very well and I had a few loan moves where I gained a lot of experience and time on the pitch.
I would have liked to have played for QPR earlier but I learned a lot on loan and am happy that I’m playing now.”
Dieng is set to make his 10th QPR appearance when the R’s host Watford in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday. The stopper hopes his team can bounce back from defeat to Blackburn Rovers last time out.
He said: “We are looking at the positive aspects. We’ve won two of our last three games, so six points from nine, which was a good week before the international break. We haven’t let ourselves get into a bad mood because of the way that week ended [at Blackburn].”
Dieng was joined on this week's episode of The Loftcast by former Rangers winger Lee Cook.
