Neil Warnock on Queens Park Rangers' promotion chances

Queens Park Rangers are currently eight points adrift of the play-off places.

Neil Warnock has told Sky Sports’ FL72 podcast that he feels Queens Park Rangers’ squad is too 'unbalanced' to get promoted at this moment in time.

Warnock is in temporary charge of the R’s, and although he has a lot of quality to work with, the 66-year-old boss believes there are areas of weakness in the team.

With the January transfer window coming up, QPR have a chance to address those problems, and Warnock feels that bringing in quality will be vital.

“I think the squad is slightly unbalanced for a promotion charge, but I don’t think there’s a lot that needs doing,” he explained.

“January will be an important time for the club, I think if they could tweak it, they would have a good chance. You have a chance of getting in the play-offs, so I wouldn’t write us off.”

QPR are currently sat in 13th place and if they are to get promoted, their form will have to improve drastically.

The R’s struggled for consistency under Chris Ramsey, and they already are eight points behind the top-six.

That gap could get bigger over the coming weeks, too, with QPR facing a set of very tricky fixtures after the international break.

QPR take on Middlesbrough, Leeds United, Reading, Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion in their next five matches, meaning their new manager looks set to be welcomed with a baptism of fire.
