Queens Park Rangers‘ defender Ryan Nelsen celebrates after scoring a goal a game in Wigan on December 8, 2012. QPR can boost their bid to stave off relegation by “sneaking” a couple of wins over the congested Christmas holiday programme, Nelsen said on Tuesday.

QPR can boost their bid to stave off relegation by “sneaking” a couple of wins over the congested Christmas holiday programme, captain Ryan Nelsen said on Tuesday.

Harry Redknapp’s side are six points from safety, ahead of home games against West Brom and Liverpool and an away match with Chelsea.

New Zealander Nelsen believes the busy schedule can work in their favour.

He told Sky Sports News: “We’ve got to start producing some points, hopefully starting tomorrow (Wednesday, against West Brom).

“We’ve been almost there in a lot of games but it’s not good enough – we need some 90-minute performances.

“We’ve got to dig deep and play every game like it’s our last and claw our way back.

“Over Christmas you can sneak wins because the games come thick and fast.”

Redknapp believes keeping the west London side in the top flight would rank as one of his biggest achievements in the game and Nelsen thinks the 65-year-old is the man for the job.

“If anyone can help you it’s him. The players have the motivation but he’s already made an impact through his man-management.”
