QPR captain Grant Hall says him and his teammates are not getting too down about the Championship season being suspended as every other team is in 'the same boat'.

The Rs were on a six-game unbeaten streak before the coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to the season, with their results meaning they cut the gap down between themselves and the play-off places to just six points. 

However, Hall explained while although his side were hitting a good run of form, there were other things to be concerned about. 

“We hit great patch of consistency and that is what you need in the Championship - if you are consistent, you will do well,” Hall told QPR’s official website. 

“We struggled with that in the past, we would do well in games but poor in others. 

“To go six unbeaten is very difficult to do in the Championship so it was difficult for us for our games to be cancelled. 

“Everyone is in the same boat, whether it's teams at the top or the bottom, so we cannot feel too down about it because at some point we will be going back to the season and hopefully it gets finished.

“We would love to be at the training ground all having a laugh but unfortunately that cannot happen because there are more important issues going on in the world so football has to take a back seat.” 

Hall experienced an 18-month layoff from football after suffering a serious knee injury earlier in his QPR career, and the centre half has drawn similarities between then and present. 

“For me, having dealt with that in the past I think it’s helped me be better equipped now as well,” he added. 

“For any player, everyone is going to be struggling through this because no one knows when we’re going to be back in.

“I’m lucky that I’ve got a gym at my house so I can keep on top of my gym work.

“It is difficult, we are training towards nothing. We do not have an end date so it is weird for us all. All we can do is try and keep as fit as possible and hopefully, it will be over soon.

“Mentally, it is a big challenge. I am better equipped to deal with this now because of my knee injury. Everyone is going to be struggling.”

In addition to keeping himself fit and following the programmes sent to him by QPR’s backroom staff, Hall has been keeping himself busy by preparing for an expected arrival. 

“It is just a case of keeping myself busy and keeping fit as much as I possibly can but it is difficult because we are not match fit because we are not playing games,” he explained. 

“I have a baby on the way, so me and the missus are trying to get things done like getting the nursery done so it is keeping my mind stimulated. I have a lot on and a little girl to look forward to.”
