QPR Reserves drew 1-1 at Hayes & Yeading this afternoon, with Patrick Agyemang on target for Ronnie Jepson's side.

Agyemang gave the second-string the lead going into the break but the hosts drew level with five minutes remaining.

Jepson was pleased with the work-out, telling www.qpr.co.uk: "It was another very useful match for us.

"We are working hard to improve the players' fitness levels and it was great to see Pat get himself on the scoresheet. He did well.

"Damion Stewart got another 90 minutes under his belt and came through unscathed, which was another real plus point.

"We created a few chances in the first half and I was happy with how we did.

"I made a few changes in the second half, and gave a few trialists a run-out, It was useful to have a look at them. We probably lost our shape a little bit in the closing stages.

"Overall, it was a good performance and a decent test."

I've worked for this Club for nearly five years now and I can honestly say I've never known a team spirit like it within the camp.

I spoke earlier in the week about the impact the five new signings have made - both on and off the pitch - but Messrs Kenny, Hill, Derry and Mackie took it to a whole new level on Saturday night.

The singing initiation has always been part and parcel when new players arrive at the Club - I even had to sing on my first away trip with the team up at Blackburn Rovers in 2006, busting out a version of Vanilla Ice's 'Ice, Ice Baby.'

However, I've never known anyone deliver like these guys did.n anyone deliver like these guys did.

Matching outfits is one thing, but throwing dance moves into the equation is something else.

The lads were first class from the first vocal and as the singing unfolded, residents in the hotel suddenly emerged from their rooms to join in with the fun.

A standing ovation was the least they deserved and the general feeling within the squad was that their rendition of JLS's 'Everybody In Love' was the best ever heard at QPR.

We shouldn't be at all surprised though. The four new lads, as well as Leon Clarke (who informed www.qpr.co.uk that he did his initiation when he was on loan here a few years ago - although his team-mates weren't having it!), have settled into the group remarkably well.

They really are the heartbeat of the squad already and you sense they will all play a major role next season.

Simon Cowell would probably say otherwise, but they definitely get a big thumbs up from me!

Flashback a Year: The View of Terry Venables on Pre-Season
"... You can train hard and work hard but in the end there's nothing like games to get you fit. Managers naturally say that it's not about winning or losing in pre-season games, but it is. They want to be playing tough games, not easy games that they're going to win six or seven nil just for a work out. They don't know where they stand with that. Maybe that's OK in the first week or 10 days but after that they want to be playing tough teams." Venables
