Redknapp gives hint over team selection for QPR's next two games

Queens Park Rangers take on Arsenal and Crystal Palace in the next few days.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has suggested that he will operate with a rotation policy over the next few games.

With QPR facing two games in the space of three days against Arsenal and Crystal Palace, Redknapp is keen to use the entirety of his squad. 

The R's possess an experienced team and that means many of their usual first-choices may not be able to cope with the strenuous demands of the Christmas period, with Redknapp trusting his fringe players to step up. 

"We've got one or two knocks - and too many to run through really. (Yun's) turned his ankle and he's out for quite a while," Redknapp told Get West London. "We have got a few older players in our squad, and with two games in two days, we're going to need rotate."

QPR's first match against Arsenal looks the more difficult of the pair, especially when considering their away record this season.

Redknapp's men are yet to pick up a point on their travels and a trip to the Emirates, therefore, appears a daunting prospect.

It could mean that many of their more pivotal players are left on the substitutes' bench, with the Palace match looking more key in defining their season.

The Eagles are one of the teams fighting against the drop with QPR and beating them would represent a major step towards safety.
