QPR boss Redknapp explains dropping Townsend, Taarabt for Southampton win

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has explained dropping Andros Townsend and Adel Taarabt for victory at Southampton.

Townsend has been excellent for QPR in recent games.

Redknapp said: "Townsend has been excellent. He's done great for me, so it was a difficult one leaving him out.

"He's been as good a player as we have, but I decided to give Junior Hoilett a run today.

"I felt we needed a target, so I brought [Jay] Bothroyd in as Bobby [Zamora] wasn't fit.

"Adel hasn't been at his best so I left him out."
