Can Harry Redknapp save QPR from the drop? 5

Rangers secured their first away win since November 2011 and only second win of the season, both with Harry in charge, and suddenly the belief seems to be coming back to the West London side who had suffered under the previous stewardship of Mark Hughes.

Although they face some very tricky fixtures with inform Tottenham, West Ham and Manchester City, having taken down a resurgent Chelsea a 5 point defect from moving out of the bottom 3 and the jinx of being the bottom team at Christmas no longer seems to phase them.

Shaun Wright Phillips who in a recent interview explained, “It makes us think that if Chelsea struggled to break us down, with the way we played against them, then a lot of teams will.

“We’ve never stopped believing we could escape, ever since we got in this situation. We still believe it strongly and it was a great relief to get this result. Away from home we haven’t been the best and we’ve dropped a lot of points, s this is something we must consolidate now.

It is definitely a tough proposition with only Sheffield United ever being able to avoid the drop having spent Christmas rooted to the bottom since the Premier League was formed, but if anyone can do it, Dirty Harry can. Good luck to QPR and Harry Redknapp. Can they avoid the drop?
