Queens Park Rangers have taken Montel Agyemang and Nathan Oduwa on trial in the wake of their 7-1 drubbing against West Brom, West London Sport reports.
QPR boss Steve McClaren is frantically searching for answers to solve his woes at Loftus Road after a troubled start to the season has seen the R’s sit rock-bottom of the Championship table after four consecutive defeats.
Saturday’s 7-1 drubbing at the hands of West Brom and the 3-0 defeat to Bristol City on Tuesday has significantly increased the pressure on him, with a testing fight against relegation looking set to lie ahead over the course of the 2018-19 campaign.
McClaren’s side will hope to strengthen their ranks before the loan market closes on August 31st and are also taking advantage of free agents, with West London Sport reporting that Montel Agyemang and Nathan Oduwa have been taken on trial.
Both players featured for the entire 90 minutes of a thrilling 3-3 draw between QPR’s U23 side and their Nottingham Forest counterparts, where Sebastien Bassong, Grant Hall and Chris Paul were also in the squad as they maintain their fitness levels while they search for new clubs.
QPR should definitely be exploring every avenue they possibly can over the course of the coming weeks as they need all the help they can get, but McClaren’s plan to potential sign the duo on permanent deals if they impress on trial is hardly inspiring.

22-year-old winger Oduwa is probably the more exciting options as the former Tottenham Hotspur man earned experience on loan with SPL giants Rangers, Luton, Colchester and Peterborough before being released by the Lilywhites last year.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old midfielder Agyemang has played for a host of non-league sides since leaving Leyton Orient in 2016 and remains largely untested at a high level, which raises questions as to whether he can cope with the rigours of Championship football.
