Redknapp sets 37-point target for QPR
Feb 17, 2013 4:12 PM GMT
Harry Redknapp believes Queens Park Rangers need at least 37 points to stay in the Premier League.
QPR are rooted to the bottom of the table with just two wins all season, and are seven points adrift of safety having taken just 17 from 26 games.
However, the former Tottenham boss thinks a good run of form is just around the corner for his team, and has set his sights on a target which he feels the club can battle towards to remain in the top flight.
Redknapp has set 20 points from their remaining 12 games as the target for the struggling west Londoners.
"If someone offered me 37 points now I'd probably take my chance and think that would be enough," he told the club's official website.
If QPR are to start collecting vital points though they will have to do it the hard way, as their next match sees Premier League leaders Manchester United coming to Loftus Road - but Redknapp is ready for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.
"They are a top, top team - world class. They could field two world class teams, couldn't they?" he said.
"You look at some of the names that didn't feature on Wednesday (in the Champions League), the likes of (Nemanja) Vidic and (Chris) Smalling and many more, and it's just unbelievable.
"It's a cracking game for us though. Welcoming United to Loftus Road is something I'm sure the fans are excited about.
"We were on a nice little run prior to the Swansea defeat (4-1), so we're looking forward to it," he added.
"We know it's going to be a tough game, but it's a great challenge for us."
