CARETAKER boss Mick Harford has confirmed that he hopes to succeed Paul Hart as QPR manager on a permanent basis.

Harford, who stepped into the breach following Hart's resignation last week, said: "They've asked me to be in charge of first-team affairs, which means being the manager, and I enjoy that.

"It's an opportunity for me as well and hopefully I can grab it. If the players keep playing like that [at Blackpool] it gives us a bigger chance.

"I enjoyed working with Paul. It's been difficult for everyone connected with the club - the staff, the players and especially the supporters. They need a bit of stability."
