Aramide Oteh swapped one League Two club for another in the winter transfer window as QPR sent him to Colchester United after a spell at Stevenage.
The hard-working forward had a decent spell with Stevenage in the first-half of the season with plenty of displays full of industry and the odd goal endearing him to fans of the club.
He didn’t get as many starts as he perhaps would have liked, however, and is now seeking that in Essex – though so far he has again been used as a sub.
United look out of sorts this season and currently lie 18th in the table – looking destined for a mid-table finish at best.
They’re looking for a spark, then, and fans have remarked on social media that Oteh appears to help give that to them when he comes on, but it’s yet to earn him a start.
He’s accrued 69 minutes across three sub appearances and is yet to score, with some wanting him now to start from the off and play through the middle up top.
Whether Steve Ball opts to go down that route, however, remains to be seen but QPR will surely hope that he does so their youngster gets more minutes.
Indeed, with Colchester having not won a game since early December in the league, perhaps now is the time to really give Oteh a run.
With him not coming on against Leyton Orient last time out, however, it remains to be seen if that is going to happen.
And, that said, the jury has to be out on his future at QPR. Of course, he is still a young player and further loan deals may well help him out but the Hoops will want to see him playing regularly somewhere before making a call – let’s see if he can force his way in for Colchester.
