CLINT Hill is the first QPR player to utter the phrase that Rangers will keep fighting ‘until it’s mathematically impossible’.
The best in hoops on Saturday was tired after the 1-0 defeat to Fulham, and probably didn’t think twice about the cliché in Rangers fight against relegation – but it's the phrase used by those about to clutch straws.
If there was any doubt about a team with backs to the wall, the defender (pic) made it plain the team needs a bit more luck than they’ve enjoyed in the last three months.
Samba Diakite was the fifth Ranger to get red carded when the debutant took the long walk less than a third into his debut, and Hill, who was the first on the opening day of the season, is desperate for fortunes to head in QPR’s direction for a change.
He said: “We’re not giving ourselves a chance – it’s difficult with eleven never mind 10. We need a bit of luck.
“We need a bit more discipline and we need better shape off the ball – especially in the first 20 minutes against Fulham.
“I thought Samba played well at least for 25 minutes or so. He was rash, and he’s a young kid in a new country – he’ll learn from this, and we’ll keep going until it’s mathematically impossible.”
