QPR boss Redknapp won't set points survival target

QPR boss Harry Redknapp is reluctant to set a points target for survival.

Redknapp, who takes charge of his second game when fellow strugglers Aston Villa visit Loftus Road today, refused to set a points target.

But he insists the Londoners have to play like a side chasing a European spot. He said: "It's got to be top form. We're talking top-six or top-seven, that's what we have to do now.

"We have given a points start to everyone and have to play catch up.

"It's like a handicap because we are way, way off.

"It will be hard, no one is kidding themselves about that - but it's not impossible.

"I'm optimistic. I think we can do it. I've not come here to age myself another 10 years.

"I think it can be done - if I didn't, I wouldn't have come."
