QPR legend Rufus Brevett reckons Rangers are still a couple of players short but could make a promotion team.
The rugged defender, who made 153 appearances for QPR during the 1990s before joining Fulham during the Al Fayed revolution, still takes a seat at Loftus Road when he can and has casts a knowledgeable eye over the team inherited by Paulo Sousa.
He said: "We will have to see what happens in the window, and that's when they have got to kick on if they are going to achieve anything this season."
Despite QPR's inconsistent season Brevett believes the new manager's reputation may benefit the team. "He's unproven as a manager, but he has a decent playing pedigree - you can't argue with what he's done on the pitch," he said.
Brevett knows the effect money can have on a team after seeing chairman Mohamed Al Fayed take over at Fulham during his time at Craven Cottage.
"When I was at Fulham, Al Fayed came in and suddenly there was a lot of money in the club and the potential to buy in big players," he said. "As long as QPR spend wisely and get the right players in, there is no reason they can't get promoted this season."
Brevett is currently taking his FA coaching badges and lending his experience to Combined Counties League outfit Bedfont.
He always felt he wanted to stay in football after his playing career ended and hopes to make his way into the Football League.
While not ruling out returning to QPR as manager, Brevett knows eventually shifting into Paulo Sousa's seat is a long term project. "Obviously I want to coach or manage as high as possible and Bedfont is an opportunity to get my foot on the ladder," he added.
