Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has revealed the aim for the club is now to put together a string of victories, after defeating Leicester City 3-2 on Saturday.

Charlie Austin secured the three points for the R’s with a dramatic winner at Loftus Road, turning in a late header to spark wild celebrations within the home support.

The victory still leaves QPR in 18th spot in the Premier League, although they are now in the relegation zone by goal difference alone
– with Hull tied on eleven points with the London-based side – and Redknapp is now hoping the team can push on ahead of a “tough” week.

“This is a run of games where we’ve got a chance to get some points,” Redknapp said.

“We’ve got a tough week, going to Swansea next and then Burnley here.

This was the first chance and we took it. It’s put us right back into the pack. If we’d been sitting here on eight points at the end of the night, you’d say we’ve got a mountain to climb but we’re back in there,” he added.

“We showed a lot of character. They pinned us in at the end of the game and it was all hands to the pump. We defended for our lives and it was a great win for us.”

The win halted QPR’s run of three games without a victory and they will look to build on that success with another over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday. However, Redknapp’s men have struggled on the road and if they were to win – priced at 4.18 – it would be their first away victory of the season.
