Harry Redknapp: QPR boss believes 37 points may be enough to stay up

The Rs are currently bottom of the Premier League table, with 20 points to their name and just 10 games left, the first of which is at home to Sunderland on Saturday.

But Redknapp's men gave their chances a boost with a 2-1 win at Southampton last weekend and the experienced boss thinks five more victories and a pair of draws could be enough to save them.

"I've been optimistic all along," he said. "I still feel we'll stay up. We just need to go on a run, we need five wins at least, I think.

"I would take 37 points here and now, I'd take my chances on that if I was offered it. We just have to keep picking up results.

"We need back-to-back wins, it's about time we did it. If we can do that, it puts us right back in the picture."

With regard to Saturday's game, Redknapp says he will make a late decision on whether goalkeeper Julio Cesar and forward Bobby Zamora are fit enough to play.

"We're waiting on them and we're not sure on either," he said. "We'll leave it until the last minute.

"Zamora is obviously a big threat and we'd love him to be fit but Jay Bothroyd and Loic Remy both scored last week, so we'll see how we go.

"Sunderland are strong up front and have two very good strikers but we're at home and need to give our fans something to shout about. We're still in there with a good chance."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
