Warnock desperate to change QPR squad in summer

Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock 'can't wait' for the summer to change his squad following the 1-1 home draw with Sheffield Wednesday. Warnock was frustrated with the result and admits he is anxious to get on with the task of overhauling his squad at Loftus Road.

Warnock said: "This is the most frustrated I've been since I came to the club.

"We should win games like that. Wednesday have got to be delighted with that point.

"I can't wait until the summer, when I can rectify what needs to be rectified.

"We lack a physical presence up front and have too many loan players here.

"There are one or two areas I need to look at, and hopefully we can start next season with players who have a clear idea of what I want.

"If we had a team in place we could cater for a player like Adel Taarabt.

"He'd be better off with a big man up front, but we haven't got anyone like that."

But Warnock is confident that Rangers, who have 48 points, will be good enough to stay in the Championship.

"It's a nervous time for most teams - I bet even Preston will be glad when they get a few more points and are safe," he added.

"With the players we've got, we are capable of beating teams. I'm not fearful, I'm just very frustrated."
