QPR can 'sneak' some wins during festive period, says Ryan Nelsen
Tuesday 25 December 2012
QPR captain Ryan Nelsen believes the team can “sneak” some wins over the festive season as they bid to escape relegation from the Barclays Premier League.
Harry Redknapp's side are six points from safety, ahead of home games against West Brom and Liverpool and an away match with Chelsea.
New Zealander Nelsen realises the severity of the situation - but believes the congested programme at this time of the yea can work in their favour.
He said: "We've got to start producing some points, hopefully starting tomorrow (against West Brom).
"We've been almost there in a lot of games but it's not good enough - we need some 90-minute performances.
"We've got to dig deep and play every game like it's our last and claw our way back.
"Over Christmas you can sneak wins because the games come thick and fast."
Redknapp believes keeping the west London side in the top flight would rank as one of his biggest achievements in the game and Nelsen thinks the 65-year-old is the man for the job.
He added on Sky Sports News: "If anyone can help you it's him. The players have the motivation but he's already made an impact through his man-management."
