Holloway on the Brighton Game & Possibility of Playoffs

TEAMTALK - Holloway's Men in Good Spirits

QPR manager Ian Holloway claimed he would have few problems raising his players' spirits for the Boxing Day trip to Brighton.Despite their poor home form Rangers have produced some encouraging displays on the road and collected four points from their last two away matches against Stoke and Ipswich.Victory at the Withdean would give Holloway's side their fourth away win of the campaign and would put them in the ideal frame of mind for the home clash with Cardiff two days later."We'll be training on Christmas Day, and we'll leave on the morning of Boxing Day," Holloway said."I'm hoping to have a nice day with my family on the 25th, and I'm also hoping that we won't have any more injuries, because we've had so many this season."It won't be hard to pick up the players for Brighton, because I was proud of how hard they worked against Coventry."

Ian Holloway insists QPR can still claim a play-off place this season ahead of their Boxing Day trip to Brighton.Rangers' home defeat by Coventry - their fifth of the season at Loftus Road - left them six points adrift of the play-offs.But manager Holloway said: "There's more than enough in my side to show me we are not far off [the play-offs] but we just need it in that final third," said Holloway."We have four games in eight days and they have to show character now - simple as that."
