Traore hopes QPR win will kickstart season
The Super Hoops have endured a tough start to the campaign, with Harry Redknapp coming in to replace the sacked Mark Hughes, with the team still searching for their first victory of the campaign.
An Adel Taarabt brace handed the Londoners their first three-point haul of 2012/13, and Traore believes that it could prove to be the catalyst for a run of results:
“It was definitely a relief to get that win,” he is quoted by The Metro.
“I still think it’ll be really hard and before this game we were unbeaten in three.
“It was really important to get that win, so I think now we can start our season.”
The result lifts QPR from the foot of the table and into 19th, however Reading could move back ahead with a draw against Arsenal.
The Loftus Road club have improved of late, with Redknapp instilling a new sense of optimism in the squad.
It is expected that the former Tottenham coach will delve into the transfer market in January in a bid to keep them clear of relegation.
Names such as Scott Parker and Peter Crouch have been mentioned, but it’s unclear how much ‘Arry will be able to spend following a costly summer under the guidance of his predecessor.
