Looking to Saturday

QPR Official Site August 30 - PLAY YOUR PART
R's gaffer John Gregory has called on all QPR fans to turn out in force to pay their respects to Ray Jones on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers lock horns with Southampton at Loftus Road, in their first fixture since the tragic death of the young QPR striker.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk this morning, Gregory said: "I think there will be a mixture of people at Loftus Road on Saturday - regular fans who come here week after week, and others who will make that extra effort to be here to pay their respects to Ray.
"It would be fantastic to have a full house. I'm sure the fans will shout that little bit louder for Ray and for the team.
"The events of the last seven days have united the QPR family and in the long term we will all be stronger together - both fans and players."
Gregory added: "In many ways, on this particular weekend, football takes a back seat.
"That's honestly how it feels, but come 3.00pm, we've got the chance to put the events of the last week to the back of our minds for 90 minutes.
"Every member of our squad is still hurting, but maybe they'll just run that one per-cent more and chase every ball down that little bit harder than before - and they'll be doing it all for Ray.
"We want to celebrate his life by putting in a winning performance." QPR
