QPR defender James Perch says having a manger who understands the club is a massive plus to enforce stability.
Ian Holloway had previously been part of the furniture at Loftus Road as a player and a manager before being given the top job in November last year, and Perch says that his attributes have been a real positive for the team.
Speaking to GetWestLondon, he said: "We had Jimmy before who was quite defensive and wanting to win 1-0, but Holloway has come in, he’s quite attacking, wants to score goals and wouldn’t mind if we won 4-3. There’s a quite a difference in style but he’s come in and done really well. Obviously he’s ex-QPR and he’s been around the block so he knows what he’s doing.
“It helps massively because he knows what’s expected. Even for me coming here from the north, to get a feel for what the club is like is brilliant. It helps people to settle down and understand what the club means.
“With the league how it is now, I think getting into the play-offs would be a great achievement, especially with the teams coming down and spending millions and millions. It’s not all about spending money but it does definitely help.
“We’ve got a great group with a great fighting spirit, a great home record, a great home support and can beat anyone at Loftus Road.”
