QPR manager Ian Holloway insists there is still enough time to turn around his side’s fortunes in the Championship, despite seeing them slump to a sixth straight defeat - their worst league run in 21 years - at leaders Brighton on Tuesday afternoon.

Holloway’s men suffered a comprehensive 3-0 defeat at the Amex, conceding goals from Sam Baldock, Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert while also seeing captain Nedum Onuoha dismissed in the second half.

And despite seeing his side fall to yet another loss, Holloway remains convinced they can end this dreadful run of form - hinting he will be able to bring in reinforcements in the transfer window.

He said: “If you look at the first half overall you just need someone in a bit of form to [put it] in the top corner.

“Whatever we did the goalkeeper (David Stockdale) seemed to get his gloves on it.

“But that’s just the way it is, there was a huge turning point with Nedum getting sent off, but it was hard enough anyway. The minute [the referee] gives a foul then he’s got a decision to make, but I thought it was very, very harsh.

“We were in it until the second goal and it does look like a penalty. We went a tad deep and that’s the way the lads are feeling about how things are going at the minute.

“I feel for them, but we’ve got more than enough games to get the new ones gelled in and get some new ones in January to help. But such is life, they’re a good team and well done to them.

“It’s onwards to the next game. We’ve got to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and get going again.”
