MATTHEW Connolly insists team morale will remain high at QPR whoever gets the nod to succeed Paulo Sousa as coach.

Rangers are expected to appoint a new boss within the next two weeks and Connolly told the Times: "Whoever they appoint will inherit a very good group of players, young and old - we've got a great team spirit.

"If Gaz [Ainsworth] gets the job, all the players will be very happy. If he doesn't, we'll make whoever comes in very welcome and get on with the job next season."

The Rs displayed astonishing character on Sunday at Preston in what was a meaningless game for them, with Connolly almost sending Deepdale into despair as his last-minute header was cleared off the line.

"It would have been nice to score, but it was obvious there was going to be a pitch invasion, so maybe it's better that it didn't go in," added the defender.

"All the players want to do a job for themselves, first and foremost, but I think it was only fair on the other teams who needed to get in the play-offs.

"If we were in the same situation, we'd want other teams to give everything. My aim's to do my best for the team and Gaz and that won't change.
