The Rā€™s held Sunderland to a 0-0 draw at the Stadium of Light tonight in Redknappā€™s first game in charge since taking the Loftus Road reins but he feels there is a heap of hard work to do if they want to avoid relegation.
"It's going to be tough, we mustn't kid ourselves,ā€¯ said the former Tottenham boss.
"You look at the position we are in - it's very, very difficult. But I can see there are some decent players there.
"We need to play as a team and be a team and if we can put them together and get them to work together, we have got a chance."
