Harry Redknapp: 'They want to have a great season next season. If we get pro

The QPR manager will meet with the board next week to discuss potential sales and purchases during what promises to be an interesting summer at Loftus Road.

"I'm looking at people with next year in mind now. They've all got a lot of play for," said the QPR boss, ahead of Sunday's Sky Live clash at Reading.

"We've got to keep going. It's a difficult situation but we've got to keep playing. We're not downing tools. It's important that we don't.

"It's difficult, but we want to pick up as many points as we can. The last few games have knocked us out a bit and it's been disappointing.

"Now it's gone. But we've got to keep going."

Despite being on the cusp of relegation, Redknapp insists it is not all doom and gloom for the Hoops.

"The new training ground is a great bonus," he added. "It shows you the club is forward-thinking.

"They're not going to roll over and die. They want to have a great season next season. If we get promoted if could be a great season.

"That pitch is not made for good football now. If I want to kick the ball up the pitch all day I'd be quite happy to have a terrible pitch, but I want to provide a team that plays football."
