QPR forwards Jordan Hugill and Nahki Wells have formed an encouraging strike partnership in the early part of the Championship season to help guide their side to six wins from 11 games.
The West London outfit managed to avoid relegation last term but they have been competing at the top end of the Championship table this term following Mark Warburton’s arrival at the club over the summer.
The former Brentford boss signed no less than 14 new players during the transfer window with this figure including the loan additions of Hugill and Wells from Premier League sides West Ham and Burnley respectively.
Wells has returned for his second spell at the club after also spending last season on loan, and he has already managed to score six goals so far this term compared to his seven strikes in the entirety of last campaign.
Meanwhile, Hugill has also been among the goals by scoring six in 11 appearances, and both forwards were on the score sheet when QPR cruised to a 4-2 victory over Blackburn on Saturday afternoon.
Hugill has now taken to Twitter to post a message to his strike partner after their impressive start to the season:

It’s clear that Hugill and Wells have rapidly developed a good understanding on the pitch with the two players’ different playing styles appearing to compliment one another nicely.
The fact they also seem to get on well off the pitch is something that will only help their partnership continue to thrive, as it will likely become harder to succeed as the season develops and defences start to gain an understanding of the duo.
There can be no doubt that Warburton should also be credited for pinpointing these two forwards as players who could work well together, as there would have been no guarantee of this being the case when they were signed towards the end of the window.
The QPR boss took some time to seal his striker signings over the summer after recruiting well throughout the rest of the team, but Hugill and Wells’ form so far suggests it was worth the wait.
