HARRY Redknapp believes the R’s home form will play a huge role in our bid to climb away from the relegation zone in the Barclays Premier League.
Rangers play host to Aston Villa at Loftus Road this weekend and the new R’s boss is calling on the Hoops faithful to crank up the volume and create an atmosphere like no other on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, Redknapp said: “We need to make Loftus Road a really difficult place to come for away sides.
“It reminds me of Fratton Park. It’s a small stadium and the crowd are right on top of you.
“It’s a great place to be when the fans are in full voice.
“We need to make it a place team’s fear coming to and that needs to start on Saturday.”
Redknapp was full of praise for the 375 Rangers fans who braved awful conditions, as well as a mammoth journey north, for Tuesday’s goalless draw at Sunderland and he now insists it is down to the players to give the R’s supporters something to shout about.
“Our fans that travelled up to Sunderland were fantastic,” he said,
“They were right up the top there but we could hear them throughout.
“We need everyone in this together if we’re going to give it a right good go, but it’s down to us to give the fans something to really shout about.”
Tickets for Saturday’s clash against Villa are still available.
