Redknapp calls for teamwork after first QPR point
Wednesday 28 November 2012
Harry Redknapp has said that if Queens Park Rangers are to pull themselves free from the relegation mire, it is going to take a concerted effort by all of the players, the BBC has reported. Redknapp was speaking after QPR picked up their first Premier League point in five games, by virtue of a draw with Sunderland.
QPR remain bottom of the table but have arrested a slide that brought defeat in the last five fixtures, and recorded a first clean sheet since the goalless draw with Chelsea at Loftus Road in September, 10 games ago.
After Aston Villa beat Reading on Tuesday evening there are now four points between the R’s and the Royals, who are second-bottom, but Villa’s victory means there are eight points between QPR and 17th in the league, the position to which Villa climbed thanks to Christian Benteke’s winning goal.
Redknapp was taking charge of his first match as QPR manager since replacing Mark Hughes over the weekend, and said: “We need to play as a team and be a team. If we can put them [the players] together and get them to work together, we have got a chance.”
