He's had to be patient, but Ryan Manning is finally breaking through at Queens Park Rangers and he is doing so with aplomb.
The Republic of Ireland youth international was handed his senior debut by Ian Holloway against Wolverhampton Wanderers on New Year's Eve, helping his side to end a six-game losing streak.
He has played in two more games since then and continued to prove his worth to Holloway with a superb assist in their last outing against Reading, a game which they won 1-0.
Pawel Wszolek got in behind the Reading full back on the right and surged forward before pulling the ball back to Manning, who played a cool first-time through ball to goalscorer Jamie Mackie with the outside of his foot.
Manning, 20, has yet to taste defeat with Holloway's QPR and he will be hoping to continue his impressive form as he rides the crest of a wave at Loftus Road.
