QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits the expectations he had of the squad haven't been met.

Redknapp accepts QPR are down after defeat to Stoke City.

"I thought we would still be in with a chance at this stage when I came in, but you don't know until you get here and work with the team.

"You're not sure what you've got, who is who and how they are.

"But I felt we've been in every game apart from Liverpool, who battered us here and were different class.

"Other than that, we've been in every game. It is just that little dividing line that makes the difference."
