QPR manager Harry Redknapp is hopeful that ‘one or two’ of his new signings will be able to take the field against Norwich on Saturday.
It was a busy deadline day at Loftus Road with Jermaine Jenas, Andros Townsend and Christopher Samba all arriving and, while the former Blackburn defender is still recovering from a finger injury, Redknapp insists it is possible for a couple of the other new signings to make an appearance.
“It’s a big game for us tomorrow,” Redknapp told reporters. “We’ve been in good form and got a great point against Man City.
“We’ll have to look at the new signings. Hopefully one or two can play tomorrow.
“Jenas is in the squad, we’ll have a look at him this morning. We’ve got one or two little knocks. We’re hoping Jamie Mackie is okay but Junior Hoilett is not quite fit.”
Redknapp is confident that results like the one against Manchester City will buoy his side in the second half of the season as they try to climb out of the relegation places.
“We’ve given ourselves a chance, we’re only four points adrift,” he said.
“It’s going to be hard but I still believe we can stay up.
“It’s up to the players to prove their worth. If we weren’t in the position we’re in we wouldn’t need to bring anyone in.”
