Heaton Enjoying QPR Loan

Manchester United loanee Tom Heaton says that he is enjoying life at Loftus Road despite playing second fiddle between the sticks.

The goalkeeper penned a short-term loan deal with the club prior to the fixture against Plymouth Argyle back in mid-August.

While he admits his frustration at not starting games, he admits that he will have to wait his turn as experienced Radek Cerny continues to perform well.

"QPR is a very good club," Heaton told manutd.com

"I get on with all the players and the staff have been excellent. It`s been a touch frustrating to have played just two games, but that`s football sometimes.

"You have to be patient but (first choice goalkeeper) Radek Cerny has done very well to be fair. I accept that and I just have to keep striving to be in the team. Obviously I`m hopeful that at some point I`ll be in there."


With regards to Radek Cerny, Heaton admits he is learning a great deal from playing with the experienced keeper, and being coached by former Manchester United man David Rouse.

"You can always learn things," Tom continued.

"Obviously with Radek Cerny here as well I can learn a great deal off him. He`s 35 and been around and done it with Spurs and Slavia Prague, and now here, and he`s got a lot of experience.

"You take the most out of it and try to absorb as much stuff as you can. I`m not going to deny that the biggest thing is playing, that`s what I`m trying to do, but on top of that you still want to improve every day."


Heaton also complimented the style of QPR boss Jim Magilton, indicating that the R's boss looks to play football in the right way.

The keeper stated that Magilton's Championship experience would be crucial in helping the R's to achieve their goals this season.

"Jim Magilton`s all about passing and playing, really," continued the keeper.

"He`s not into lumping it forward, he wants pass, pass, pass, which is fantastic for me because it`s what I`m used to. I like him a lot. He just likes quick play with one and two-touch passing.

"If you can get that going in the Championship then you can be successful in that. He`s got a lot of experience himself and he`s passing that on.

"It`s a nice way to play and the lads are coming round to that way of thinking now. Some of the stuff we`re playing is excellent and if we carry on doing that then results will keep improving."


Heaton has played twice this season for QPR in the Carling Cup and the two occasions couldn't have been more contrasting.

The first a gritty tie against Accrington Stanley where the R's edged through against the League Two side at Loftus Road.

The second was quite a different encounter as QPR were narrowly edged out by Premier League contenders Chelsea, Heaton in particular starring to deny Salomon Kalou, Joe Cole and Florent Malouda.

Heaton's loan lasts until November 14, but with limited first team opportunity at Loftus Road it remains to be seen whether he is willing to remain in W12 past this date.

Cerny has done fairly well this season, a few blips notably against Peterborough, but by and large has done OK. Refreshing to have a useful back-up I must say!
