Remy pushing for role

Queens Park Rangers

Harry Redknapp is set to ring the changes for the clash with the MK Dons in the fourth round of the FA Cup but Loic Remy wants to play.

Tal Ben Haim, Alejandro Faurlin, DJ Campbell and Jay Bothroyd are all pushing to be involved but forwards Andrew Johnson (knee) and Bobby Zamora (hip) are both absent.

The boss is without Junior Hoilett (hamstring) – who pulled up in the first half of the win over Chelsea – and Samba Diakite who is away at the Africa Cup of Nations

Meanwhile, Remy is aware of the Cup’s pedigree and knows a run in the competition would be good but he is wary of losing focus on the main prize, which is staying in the Premier League.

“I know the FA Cup by name,” he said. “We have the Coupe de France in France and I think it’s a great club competition and could be very prestigious for QPR.

“Given the situation we are in, in the Premier League at the moment, it’s not a small, unimportant competition.

“Ultimately we need to be watchful as if we focus too much on the FA Cup, we’ll lose track on the Premier League. That’s what is important.”
