JASON Puncheon is going to have to do a bit more to get into QPR’s team, according to Neil Warnock.
The on-loan winger from Southampton was signed on transfer deadline day amid a flurry of last-minute deals, but has so far been restricted to just on appearance off the bench against Newcastle at the beginning of last month, and not featured on the last two subs lists.
Puncheon played in the 2-2 reserves draw with Tottenham on Tuesday, but Warnock admits he is spoiled for choice in the centre of the park.
“Jason’s working hard but he hasn’t had many matches," said the manager. "He’s got a difficult job with Shaun Wright-Phillips there and Jamie Mackie coming back.
"He’s really got to force his way into my thoughts. At the deadline I thought he was worth a gamble until Christmas.”
