Holloway: QPR need to be like Brentford

Ian Holloway says QPR need to emulate Brentford as his side look to strengthen following a troubled season.

The Bees did the double over their west London neighbours and will finish the campaign comfortably in mid-table.

And while Rangers’ big-spending in recent years has backfired, Brentford have continued to buy shrewdly on a much more modest budget.

Holloway believes that has helped Dean Smith’s team develop a style of football the R’s have been unable to implement.

“We’ve got to try getting that (Brentford’s set-up) in place, and if our fans don’t like me saying that then I’m sorry but I can only be honest,” said Holloway.

“Brentford have grown because of the way they’ve been asked to pass, move and play. When I was trying to do that we were losing.

“The players will now have a chance to develop and move the ball so they’ll become more comfortable – that’s what I intend to do.”
