QPR star hails Harry Redknapp’s influence

Queens Park Rangers forward Junior Hoilett

Winger Junior Hoilett has said manager Harry Redknapp has given Queens Park Rangers the boost needed to try to maintain their Premier League status.

The Canadian believes former Spurs coach has changed the team mentality since taking over from Mark Hughes back in November 2012, according to The Sun.

“He has been working hard in training and getting us to fight for each other”.

“That has given us confidence to show what we can do. His door is always open, he’s a good boss”, he admitted.

The Hoops still lie at the bottom of the table, but only four points away from salvation, however the hopes of survival remain alive among the squad.

Two wins in the last two games have put QPR back in the race and Saturday’s clash against Aston Villa presents itself as vital for the team’s prospects.

“It is going to be a six-pointer. Aston Villa are in the same position that we are in. It is going to be a scrap and a really important game”, said Hoilett.

The 22 year-old, who featured as a starter in the last two victories, remains confidence about the team’s chances after looking at the games left to be played.

“I’ve looked at the remaining fixtures and it is possible. We have a run of games that we can win. We have home fixtures we can win so I am trying to remain focused and work towards that goal”, he assured.
