QPR boss Redknapp stands by defensive tactics

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has defended his defensive tactics for their draw with Tottenham.

By playing with just one striker, QPR have taken four points in their last two Premier League games against Chelsea and Spurs, and Redknapp insists this is the way QPR have to continue if they want to stay up.

He said: "I've had teams in the last few years who had great attacking flair, but I have to make the best out of what we have and be hard to beat.

"Against Liverpool, I played Djibril Cisse up front with Adel Taarabt with two wingers and got destroyed. We are not good enough to play that way, unfortunately.

"Some of my players get written off. People say, "They are only Championship players". But they are giving it everything and I can't ask for more."
