QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits his side have had a “tough start” but insists “there’s an awful long way to go” following defeat at former club West Ham on Sunday.

QPR went down 2-0 after an own goal from Nedum Onouha and Diafra Sakho’s header for the home side which left the R’s bottom of the Premier League table on goal difference after conceding 15 times in seven games.

The Loftus Road outfit made a number of high-profile signings in the summer but so far the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Steven Caulker, Sandro and Leroy Fer have failed to deliver for their new club.

Redknapp was asked during his post-match interview whether the players were letting him down with their disappointing displays.

He replied: “I don’t think so. We’re short – we’re short of goals, we’re short up front.

“It’s been difficult, we lost Loic Remy on the deadline and couldn’t get a replacement. We’ve had a tough start but there’s an awful long way to go.

“We’re not going to give up are we? It’s early days. We have to find a way of playing that suits everybody and get the best out of what we’ve got.”

QPR are 5.94 to beat Liverpool in their next Premier League match at Loftus Road on Sunday, October 19.
