Ian Holloway has called on QPR fans to get behind their team when they host Norwich on Saturday.

Ollie returned to Loftus Road as manager last week, 10 years after leaving the club and he has been tasked with turning around the club's fortunes.

But the Rs boss can't do it all on his own and has called on the supporters to back their side in order to improve their shaky home form.

He said: “We need the fans to be with us. We need the fans to help us because the home form has been a bit stuttering.

“Newcastle was a debacle and dare I mention Brentford. I'm not scared to say that Brentford are a well organised team.

“They've been doing that the last four or five years. They were set up to pass it and move right. They brought in some good players. I said they'd be relegated but how wrong was I? That was tough for us to take.

“For me, it's the excitement of getting out there and working.”

Holloway was reticent in providing an update on who is fit but did reveal Jamie Mackie was returning to full training.

He said on Wednesday: “It's been slightly strange. I've not met everybody yet because of internationals. Hopefully we'll get a clean bill of health from them.

“The knocks we have had are all doing well. Jamie Mackie might even start training tomorrow (Thursday) which is fantastic for the boy. He was buzzing yesterday.

“Gladwin keeps hurting his ankle which is an ongoing problem that we have to manage. I've seen him do it twice already.

“I don't expect anyone to be missing from last weekend's great recovery. I thought they recovered really well.

“The character of the team after going down to 10, particularly Tjaronn Chery and the way he played alongside Cousins was fantastic. I'm looking to build on that really.”
