Redknapp is currently without leading scorer Charlie Austin due to injury and saw QPR draw a blank for the fourth time in five games in Sunday's 0-0 stalemate with Watford.

That result dropped QPR down to fourth in the Championship table and they have scored the joint-lowest number of goals of the top 18 teams in the division.

With only 24 goals coming in 23 games this season, it is an issue Redknapp is keen to address when the transfer window opens this week.

"We had Charlie out and Bobby Zamora, while Andy Johnson can play half a game maximum," said Redknapp. "They are not fully fit.

"The Doncaster game on New Year's Day is important for us now and we are looking to bring in another striker in January if we can.

"In some ways we are lucky Charlie has been fit for as long as he has, otherwise we could have been without a striker for weeks.

"At least we are nearly at January now and may be able to get someone in."

Redknapp has been linked with a loan move for Tottenham youngster Harry Kane, who spent time in the Championship last season with Leicester City.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
