QPR's Ephraim relishing new role

Hogan Ephraim
Ephraim joined QPR from West Ham last season

Hogan Ephraim says he is happy with his new position in the QPR side.

Ephraim has been used in a right-sided role in boss Paulo Sousa's 'diamond' midfield and said: "I'm enjoying it.

"Iíve got more responsibility defensively, but thatís good. The manager is teaching me different aspects of it and itís going well.

ďThe new manager has played at the top level and knows the game, so for him to show faith in me is something Iím proud of. Hopefully Iíll repay him for that."

Ephraim, 20, hoped to re-establish himself in the R's first team following his recovery from a shin problem in September.

But he was on the fringes of the side before his recent run under Sousa.

Ephraim added: ďEvery time he (Sousa) puts me on the team-sheet Ė and Iíve played in every game since he took over Ė it gives me great confidence. Thereís not a better confidence-booster than that.

ďI'm part of it all now so Iím really pleased. Long may it continue."
