Harry Redknapp was delighted with the displays of Jay Bothroyd and Rob Green following QPR’s 1-0 victory over West Brom, reports Sky Sports.

The win sends QPR into the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, and Redknapp took time single out Bothroyd, who recently returned to the club from a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday. The former Tottenham boss said: “Jay Bothroyd did well tonight. He was at Sheffield Wednesday but he didn't do very well and they sent him back. I put him out there and asked him to show what he can do.

He also directed special praise at England goalkeeper Green, who kept his third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, saying: “Rob Green made a fantastic save in the first-half and then a number of others when he came under pressure after we scored. That's three clean sheets in a row, which is encouraging. We're picking up some good results now and some clean sheets.

We're getting the best out of the team at the minute. There are areas that I'd like to improve on, but I can't fault the effort of the players.

Despite the rousing victory, QPR remain firmly at the bottom of the Premier League table, five points adrift of safety. Redknapp confirmed that Premier League survival must remain the club’s primary target, but admitted that winning games was an encouraging sign:

The league is the most important thing. That is the key for us. You've got to try and stay up. The rewards for doing so are so big,” he continued.

But winning is a good habit. We've won twice away from home now after not doing so for over a year.

QPR were founding members of the Premier League in 1992, finishing the first season in fifth place - the highest of all London clubs. They remained in the top flight until relegation in 1996. Rangers returned to the Premier League for the first time in 15 years for the 2011/12 season.
