QPR boss Mark Hughes has backed misfiring striker Djibril Cisse to rediscover his scoring touch.
The French frontman has failed to find the net for Rangers this season and lost his place to Andy Johnson in recent weeks.
But Cisse is set to return to the side for Sunday's London derby with Spurs after Johnson was ruled out for most of the campaign with a knee injury.
And Hughes insists it's only a matter of time before Cisse gets off the mark.
“He started the first two games then I changed things around with different formations for different challenges we faced playing away from home,” said the Welshman,
“I thought the energy of Andy Johnson and Bobby [Zamora] would help us in those games so he's been out the team.
“But we know what Djibril gives us. He's an outstanding finisher and we have to make sure as a team we're strong and compact and have enough quality about us to release Djib at the right time to be able to show what he can do.
“We haven't had the solidity to do that as yet, but when Djib's not in the team he's a great impact sub to come on.
"He's very much in my thoughts for the weekend."
