QPR boss Neil Warnock won't ring the changes for Saturday's showdown at Crystal Palace despite Monday's drubbing at Leicester.
The Hoops lost 4-0 at the Walkers Stadium, but Warnock reckons he’s inclined to stick with much the same team, with keeper Radek Cerny the only likely changer after Carl Ikeme returned to Wolves.
He said: “I don’t think I need to tinker too much. And as daft as some might think me, we had chances to win it at Leicester.
“In fact, we’ve had chances to win all the games since I came here – that’s what makes it so frustrating.
“But with Palace fighting for their lives – this is going to be tough.”
Of course, this is the manager’s first return after he quit Selhurst Park just over a month ago when Palace went into administration. And Warnock admitted he needed no scouts to prepare for the clash.
He added: “Palace are a team with quality who are in a false position. We’re going to have to be as sharp and keen as we’ve ever been to get something from the game.”
