Holloway on QPR Injuries/Selection Problems & hampered by Transfer Window

Skysports "Holloway bemoans transfer rules
By Peter ORourke - Created on 19 Dec 2005

Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway has bemoaned the transfer window as he faces up to a striker crisis.
Holloway has just two fit strikers available for Monday's clash with Coventry due to injuries and suspension.
The Loftus Road chief is unhappy that with the transfer window being closed he is not able to bring in any new players to help ease the injury crisis.
"It is a tad (a selection crisis), I wouldn't even say it is selection problems as he have got no one to choose from," Holloway told Sky Sports News.
"Stefan Moore's fit, Shabazz Baidoo has been ill for the last week. Even that young fella is not fit so I am going to have to play a makeshift strikeforce.
"Until I know Martin Rowlands is fit I can't do anything, but that's life.
"That's the new transfer window we can't do anything about it.
"It is the same for everybody in our division and that's why results are so up and down for most teams bar the two at the top.
"What we are all trying to deal with at the moment is the implications of the window and what effect it has on us.
"We can't bring anyone on loan. I would have to borrow a striker from somebody and I can't do that.
"It is new for all of us (the transfer window). We have four games in eight days after tonight's game.
"With injured squads it's very difficult for us all."
