WARNOCK: "IT'LL BE A DIFFICULT GAME"
Club News3rd March
Neil Warnock addressed the press and media ahead of our match with his former side, QPR, and revealed some fond memories of his time at Loftus Road.
“I had a fabulous time, whenever I see QPR fans a lot of them say it’s the best year they’ve ever had. It was such a special year, one not to forget really.
"Similar to Cardiff, when I took over we had to keep away from relegation, and then build a team in the summer to get up higher, and we surprised ourselves, really.
"I’m looking forward to going back, I’ve not been back yet as a manager. It’ll be a good atmosphere, but I don’t expect any favours from anyone. It’ll be a difficult game.”
With the final stages of the season on the horizon, Neil spoke of the importance of keeping up a good run of form between now and the end of the campaign.
“Everybody’s going to be fighting for the same thing. Whilst we can’t promise anything, I want to try our best to be in the top half.
"Everyone’s stepped up a gear in the last few months, and we know we’ve all got to step up a gear for next season, because everybody’s got to play their role.
"It’s got to be a happy environment, and that’s what I like about the place. The players are great, the results have been great, and the fans have been great - I think everybody is in a great place at the moment.
"We’ve got a very good group of level-headed players, who are probably surprising themselves with the quality that some of them are playing at the moment.
"We know we’ve got to maintain that if we want to be at the right end of the table come the end of the season.”
