Ian Holloway has admitted he is under pressure and that his future as QPR manager could be under threat if he cannot halt their losing run.
Rangers have lost six matches in a row – their second six-game losing run since Holloway’s return to Loftus Road as manager earlier this season – and are still not safe from relegation.
A win against fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest at Loftus Road would guarantee Rangers’ Championship survival. Otherwise, they could travel to Norwich City on the final day of the season still in danger of the drop.
Asked if his players are playing for their futures, Holloway told reporters: “I am playing for my future. The players aren’t – their contracts are what they are.
“I have a two-and-a-half-year contract, half a year has gone and if we don’t stay up I can’t imagine me being here to be fair.
“So who is under pressure more than anybody? I have got to win some games and I know that.”
West London Sport report that Holloway will again be without defender Grant Hall for the Forest game.
Hal has been struggling with a knee problem and his season appears to be over as he is also expected to miss the Norwich match.
