Draw hard to stomach for Redknapp
By Football News
QPR manager Harry Redknapp says his side's Premier League draw against Wigan on Sunday was the toughest result of his career.
Wigan's Shaun Maloney struck deep into second-half stoppage time to cancel out the stunning opening goal scored by Loic Remy minutes earlier, as Redknapp's side's relegation worries were exacerbated.
The result left QPR eight points from safety with just six games remaining.
When asked if it was the toughest result in his time at Loftus Road, Redknapp told reporters: "In my football career, never mind the season.
"What have they (Wigan) done? They've kept the ball, passed it in front of us, but how many saves has our keeper had to make? Hardly any. My players are very low, as am I.
"If we had come off with three points with 10 men it would have given us a massive boost, a massive lift, and you'd have thought we could still win four games. But now it is going to be very hard (to stay up)."
QPR had already played 70 minutes with 10 men after Bobby Zamora's red card for a high challenge on Jordi Gomez.
"It was a rash challenge (from Zamora)" conceded Redknapp, who will be without the striker for the next three matches.
