Kelman looks ahead

FORWARD Charlie Kelman returned from his loan spell at Gillingham last week and was quickly in Under-23s action on Tuesday afternoon.

The 20-year-old’s hat-trick helped Andy Impey’s young R’s clinch an impressive 4-2 victory over Ipswich Town U23s at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
 
The striker made just six starts in all competitions during his time at the Priestfield Stadium and although he cannot play first-team fixtures for Mark Warburton’s side until he is officially recalled in the New Year, the USA Under-20 International can feature for the Under-23s and B Team.
 
After the full-time whistle against Ipswich, Kelman explained: “I moved out on loan and it was unsuccessful, but it is what it is. I am very thankful for the opportunity I got from Gillingham.
 
“Sometimes moves like this work out and sometimes they don’t. My job now is not to dwell on it – I have to get my head down, work as hard as I can and see what happens in January.”
 
Reflecting on his run-out against the Tractor Boys, Kelman added: “These games are a big chance for me now. I love playing up front and I enjoy scoring goals.
 
“These games give me a chance to prove myself, you always have to in football. Everyone can talk off the pitch, but it is about what you do on it.
 
“I have good people around me, there are great people here at QPR who look after me, give me good advice and my job now is to put my head down and to start banging in the goals.”

These games give me a chance to prove myself, you always have to in football.
