MIKELE LEIGERTWOOD has pleaded for more time at QPR to show what he and his team-mates can achieve, writes Paul Warburton.
The Rangers midfielder is only too aware time is running out on the Championship club's bid to make the play-offs.
The Hoops face one of Leigertwood's old clubs, Crystal Palace, at home on Saturday, with only six games to make up the seven points to sixth place.
But the man bought from Sheffield United for £900,000 in August, 2007, reckons the squad is good enough to be given a second chance next season.
He said: "We've had three managers this season, if you count Gareth Ainsworth as well. And it takes a bit of adjusting mid-season to get to where the new manager wants us.
"This squad is a good one, and it would be good to start afresh next season."
However, Paulo Sousa has already indicated he wants a dip into the transfer market this summer to improve the playing strength he found when he became the seventh manager in twoyears in November.
And, although Leigertwood has been practically an ever-present with 35 starts and five off the bench this season, the veteran of five clubs knows he could face the axe just as much as any of the current squad.
He said: "Of course, you want to be apart of what's going on here in the future. But managers always have their own ideas, so whatever I say is unlikely to affect that."
