QPR heading for training camp

first_img Only goal difference keeps Rangers out of the bottom three following their 2-1 defeat at Hull, but they must wait until a March 4 clash with Arsenal to get things back on track. A scheduled meeting with Tottenham at the weekend has been postponed due to Spurs’ Capital One Cup final appearance, leaving Ramsey with a window to get his side together in a new environment. And with adverse weather making life hard at the club’s Imperial College training ground, it has been an easy decision. The squad have travelled to Dubai, where they will stay for five days, with Ramsey having invited three development players along. Darnell Furlong, who made his debut against Hull and was involved in the incident that led to captain Joey Barton’s sending off, makes the trip alongside Cole Kpekawa and Reece Grego-Cox. “We believe that getting together, going through and planning what we want to do for these last 12 games is going to be very important,” said Ramsey. “The grounds are not very good here at the moment and our training pitch gets flooded despite the efforts of the groundsmen, who have done very well for us this season. “We think that if we can get away for a bit of different scenery and look at things in a more holistic manner, it will be better for us. “We’ll try to cram in more quality training in a more relaxed situation.” Press Associationcenter_img Head coach Chris Ramsey has taken advantage of a break in QPR’s fixture list to take his struggling squad to Dubai for a training camp.last_img read more
