QPR will be looking to try and close the gap on the top six in the Sky Bet Championship after a season of ups and downs.
They are, though, in a better position than they were a few months ago both on and off the field and so we caught up with former manager Ian Holloway to see what he made of it all:
“I’ve been very pleased with their progress.
“Obviously, they had a horrible start to the season and it was heart-breaking for me after we had to sort out the high-end wages that were at the club and bring it back to a more controllable state last season – you had concerns.
“But if you take that start out and they had got the signings in that they did quicker, where might they be now?
“They’ve done ever so well and they’ve made some fantastic signings even if they are only on loan until the end of the season.
“They’ve still got lots of work to do but never say never in this division. They’ve competed with the best, they’ve got themselves back on track and they just need that little bit of consistency.
“Someone like Nahki Wells with his fantastic brain and the senior arrivals have been excellent.
“The ones that left like Jamie Mackie, Jack Robinson, Nedum Onuoha and James Perch, I told them that I had to let them go but I asked if they’d stay committed with the young lads coming through to the end of the season and they were brilliant to a man.
“That helped QPR getting to a situation where they might be able to move forward again.”
