London: Harry Redknapp admitted Queens Park Rangers's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League now look bleak after their failure to beat Wigan at home.
The manager had set his side a target of five wins in seven games before Sunday's meeting with their fellow relegation strugglers but with Rangers still seven points adrift of safety, Redknapp concedes the task may now be beyond them
"It's going to be hard," he said. "If we had come off with three points with ten men it would have given us a massive boost, a massive lift and you'd have thought we could still win four games. I would have done."
