Ramage wants central role

14 April 2010 03:38
Peter Ramage is keen to have an extended run at centre-half for QPR. The 26-year-old defender, who joined from Newcastle in the summer of 2008, switched from his regular right-back role to take the centre-back position vacated by fractured-skull victim Damion Stewart in Saturday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. And after enjoying his run-out alongside Kaspars Gorkss in the heart of the Rs defence, Ramage is keen to take up the role on a regular basis. "It was a bittersweet pill to go in there after Damo's injury, but I loved every minute of it," he told the Kilburn Times. "Hopefully I can get a run in the team in that position. "Centre-half is my position, if I'm honest. It's where I feel more comfortable and I played most of my games for Newcastle there in the Premier League, so I've been there and done it. "But I've had to stick at right-back and bide my time because we've got good centre-halves here - Matty Connolly's been magnificent wherever he's played and then you've got the big two, Damo and Kaspars."
