QPR boss Warnock hopes to launch signing spree

QPR boss Neil Warnock hopes to go on a signing spree in the coming weeks.

Warnock believes he requires "five or six new signings" for QPR to survive their first Premier League season in 15 years. The R's manager has also revealed he has been taking advice from Ian Holloway, whose Blackpool side were relegated on the final day of the last campaign.

"Ian Holloway said to me that he thought where they [Blackpool] made a mistake was not getting the squad big enough before the end of August, and we don't want to make that mistake if we can help it," Warnock told the Guardian. "We need five or six signings, which we are desperately trying to move on. It is difficult at the moment but when the season starts we will be ready and Loftus Road will be buzzing at the rafters.

"We do need some signings but the lads that took us up deserve a chance as well. It's not just a matter of signings. I've got to get the right ones that I think will go in to the team and make the team better. I am going to persevere."
