Speaking to the South London Press, Queens Park Rangers’ loaned in midfielder Dominic Ball has said that he wants to keep on improving and become “undroppable” at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Aberdeen allowed defensive midfielder Dominic Ball to head out on loan for the season in order to give him some first-team football away from Pittodrie, and it was Queens Park Rangers who swooped to bring him in for the season.
Having not played at all in the first four league games, Ball played in four matches as the R’s won four games in a row and has gone on to play a total of nine games for the club. And now, having started in the defeat to Leeds, Ball has said that he strives to become “undroppable” for Mark Warburton. He said:
“I was unlucky that after a good pre-season I learnt that I was suspended for the opening game – which was carried over from last season at Aberdeen. I thought it wouldn’t count if you were playing in a different country.
“That was demotivating and with Geoff Cameron coming in and doing well, I didn’t get to play in any of the opening four league games. But I kept working hard and got my chance and played in a four-game winning streak and have made nine appearances now, so I’m very happy. Now I want to carry on improving and become undroppable.
“That isn’t so easy in my position because I’m not going to create lots of chances, and playing as a defensive midfield because you don’t always get noticed, but it’s about doing the simple things very well.
“The Scottish league was great and I played there for three seasons but this feels like a step up for me and I feel that I’m doing well. I’ve got two years here with a one-year option after that so there is a chance to really settle in.”
