PAWEL Wszolek has spoken of the growing confidence in the QPR dressing room following the side’s strong start to the season.
Ian Holloway’s men followed up on their wins over Reading in the Championship and Northampton Town in the Carabao Cup with a hard-earned point at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
And the influential Wszolek, conducting his first interview in English, told www.qpr.co.uk: “For me this was a good point because Sheffield Wednesday are a very good team and they can play good football, especially at home.”
Jamie Mackie gave Rangers the lead on 23 minutes at Hillsborough before Sam Winnall levelled for the hosts three minutes after the interval.
“I thought as a team we played very well,” added Wszolek, who could not speak any English when he joined the club 12 months ago.
“The first half from us was perfect. In the second half it was disappointing for them to score so quickly but this was a very important point for the team.”
Wszolek is excelling in his role as a right wingback as Holloway continues with a 3-5-2 formation, a set-up which has seen the R’s create a number of chances in all three fixtures so far this term.
“I like this position and it is good for me to be playing in every game,” said the Poland international. “I am happy with this and want to help the team.
“We are creating lots of chances and I really believe we have a very good team – every training session you can see this.
“There is lots of confidence now in the dressing room and this is important for all the players that we have this feeling.
“We are all working hard and only by working like this, by being together, can we have success. And we all know this.”
Wszolek, who came off late on at Hillsborough with a minor calf injury, also reserved special praise for the R’s fans – very special praise indeed!
“The QPR fans are the best in the Championship, the best in England!” he said. “I love playing in front of them, especially at home.
“People say they are the 12th player and I feel this way too. They are very important for us.
“When I am on the pitch, I am playing for my family, my team-mates and for those people in the stands.”
