New players make QPR squad

QPR manager Harry Rednapp has revealed the club's two new players, Tom Carroll and Matt Phillips, will be part of tomorrow's squad taking on Birmingham. The other two last-minute signings, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Niko Kranjcar, will still be sidelined as they recover from injuries.

Redknapp did however hint he'd be happy to take Emmanuel Adebayor onboard, if Spurs would loan him out.

QPR manager could face motoring charge trial

Football manager Harry Redknapp could face a trial after pleading not guilty to two motoring offences.

The Queens Park Rangers manager is accused of speeding at 38mph in a 30mph zone on The Avenue in Poole, Dorset, on October 23 last year.

He has also been charged with failing to supply the driver's identity as required under The Road Traffic Act.

Redknapp did not attend a hearing at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court where Jonathan Morrissey, defending, entered not guilty pleas on his behalf.

A spokeswoman for the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that Redknapp, who lives in Sandbanks, Poole, had been charged with the two offences.

The Bournemouth Echo reported that Charles Nightingale, prosecuting, told the court Redknapp had not been able to ascertain whether he or wife Sandra had been driving the domestically-registered vehicle at the time of the alleged offences.

It said the trial could be dropped if the information is provided.

Crunch weekend for QPR

Time is running out for QPR if they want to stay in the Premier League.

Their chairman Tony Fernandes has said he wants Harry Redknapp to stay as manager even if they do go down.

But Redknapp thinks that his team need to beat their fellow strugglers Wigan on Sunday:

A defeat at the weekend would put the west London strugglers at least eight points from safety.
