Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Blackburn left Rangers 13 points behind second-placed Burnley with just 15 to play for.

Crucially, they are still nine points ahead of seventh-placed Brighton, but Redknapp knows a run of three games without a win is not the sort of form to take into the play-offs.

"We need a result and quickly," said the Rangers boss.

"We're still missing five or six players and that's really hurting us. We just need to get a result or two to get us into the play-offs.

"We're focused on making the play-offs now. We've got a big cushion but we need to go on a run to make sure we're heading into the play-offs with momentum."

Redknapp hopes to have Joey Barton, Clint Hill, Jermaine Jenas and Nedum Onuoha back from injuries when Rangers host Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
