New Charlton loanee Rob Hulse has revealed he was one of six players sent to train with the youth team at his parent club QPR.

The experienced striker sealed a three-month loan move to Charlton on Monday having fallen out of favour with R’s boss Mark Hughes at Loftus Road.

After coming off the bench for his Addicks debut in their 2-1 defeat to Watford last night, Hulse - who was left out of QPR’s 25-man Premier League squad this season - explained that he had been made to train with their youth team.

When asked which other senior players at QPR had suffered a similar fate, he said: “DJ Campbell, Luke Young [before he got injured], Jay Bothroyd, Smithy [Tommy Smith], [Heidar] Helguson. So there were about five or six of us.”

Hulse was disappointed with manager Hughes’ refusal to let him join up with the first team but insists he holds no grudges.

“It’s difficult but I’ve been at football clubs and I’ve seen it happen to other people,” he said.

“It happens and you wonder why, and you don’t think you’ve done anything wrong.

“But you’ve just got to get your head down and work hard, and that’s what I did.”

QPR are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table with just two points from their opening six games, but Hulse hopes they will get back to winning ways soon.

“There’s no animosity there, I hope they do well,” he said.

“I hope they start winning some games because I’ve got some good friends in the changing room.

“It’s just football. You just move on and get on with it.”
