The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

QUEENS PARK RANGERS were among the pre-sea­son favourites to bounce back to the Premier League, but man­ager Jimmy Floyd Has­sel­baink in­sists things aren’t al­ways that sim­ple.

Has­sel­baink joined the R’s from Bur­ton Al­bion in De­cem­ber and en­dured a tricky start to life at Lof­tus Road.

They be­gan the week­end 13 points adrift of the play­offs, and the 43-year-old Dutch­man in­sists it will take time to re­build.

“QPR have been rel­e­gated and ev­ery­body thinks it’s easy just to come back, and it isn’t,” said Has­sel­baink.

“A lot of things have hap­pened at the club and it has had a lot of changes.”
