Hill's warning to R's stars
QPR, Latest news update:
Clint Hill has told his Queens Park Rangers team-mates to prepare to fight for Premier League survival - or leave the club in January.
The R's defender is looking ahead to the side's final game of 2012 when Liverpool arrive at Loftus Road on Sunday afternoon knowing three points are a must given that they currently occupy bottom spot and are six points adrift of safety.
And Hill, who has been in boss Harry Redknapp's first-team plans for his six games at the Loftus Road helm, feels there is no place in the squad for players who are not willing to scrap and battle to avoid relegation.
Hill said: "The message is simple: you have to be together and be up for the fight. If you don't fancy it then January is around the corner. If you don't fancy it then off you pop, simple as that.
"Our first-half report has been pretty horrendous. Look at the papers - it's everywhere. You can't be a proud man to look at a paper or look at Sky Sports News and see you're bottom of the league. If there's any time for action, it's now."
Punters can use their free bet to back Redknapp to work his magic in the second half of the season and guide the Londoners to Premier League survival.
