QPR boss Ian Holloway has likened his squad to a set of golf clubs, believing he has a squad for all situations with the Rs facing a 'completely crazy schedule.

Rangers were active in the January transfer window, signing Sean Goss, Luke Freeman and Matt Smith, while loaning in Ravel Morrison and Kazenga LuaLua and Holloway is happy with how the quintet have settled in.

With eight games remaining, Holloway is looking to finish as high up the table as possible but also reach a point where he has to stop worrying about the opposition.

He said: “I'm not looking at how high we can finish. I'm looking at our next opponent.

“Unfortunately for us, we have to look at it 80 per cent them and 20 per cent ourselves. We look at their weaknesses and I pick a team to do that. I want to be able to pick a team which is 100 per cent us.

“The great thing is I've got different choices. I have a whole set of clubs in a bag, ie I've got a putter, chipper and driver.

“I've got a big man up front, I've got pace out wide and I can try and select the right people. I wanted to miss out the midfield.

“When you can explain why you're leaving someone out and the way they accept it helps the group. Conor Washington understood it. He went off and scored a goal as well.

“It's all about trying to get ahead of the game when you're losing all the time. Luckily, I didn't get that when we didn't win for six games. Was that me? Was that us then? Is this different now? Things change in football.

Rangers face Derby on Friday night before Aston Villa on Tuesday. They return to action the following Friday to face Brighton before Easter fixtures against Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Holloway added: “I've never had a period as completely crazy as this. We've got three or four games on a Friday night, we've got a game on a Tuesday and a game on a Monday.

“I'm going to need everybody to be up for it, to understand. The good thing is we can change tactics at the click of the fingers and they can understand it and implement it which is more important.”

Rangers were active in the January transfer window, signing Sean Goss, Luke Freeman and Matt Smith, while loaning in Ravel Morrison and Kazenga LuaLua and Holloway is happy with how the quintet have settled in.

He added: “The group has really settled in. We made changes in January. I didn't plan to do that but it worked out that way for all types of reasons.

“To get a group of people to settle and understand. Whoever is picked, it's really pleasing.”
