More From Ainsworth...Ex-QPR Loan, Mancienne to Wolves

BBC - Ainsworth proud to hold QPR reins
Ainsworth is happy to be in temporary charge at Loftus Road
QPR caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth is convinced the Loftus Road club will go from strength to strength despite the sacking of Iain Dowie last week.
"QPR is very strong with the result of what happened and will stay strong, nothing is going to break us," Ainsworth told BBC London 94.9.
"Iain was a great mentor for me when he was here, he gave me the reserve job, I never thought I'd be thrust in to this.
"I'm a very proud man, I am happy to be doing the job," the 35-year-old added. BBC

- Caretaker Manager Gareth Ainsworth is calling on Rangers fans to come out in their numbers tomorrow (Tuesday) night, as the R's play host to table-topping Birmingham City at Loftus Road.
- Buoyed by Saturday's excellent point against in-form Reading at The Madejski Stadium, Ainsworth has called on the R's faithful to pack out W12 and make it another memorable evening.
- "There's nothing I'd like more than to see a packed Loftus Road for the visit of arguably one of the best teams in this division," he told www.qpr.co.uk.
- "I've said it more times than I'd care to remember, but there really is nothing like a packed Loftus Road under the floodlights.
- "The atmosphere the fans can generate at an evening kick-off at Loftus Road is immeasurable - it can arguably be the difference between success and failure.
- "If we can get a big gate and perform like we did against Reading on Saturday, there's no reason why we can't build on our recent unbeaten run."

Championship - Wolves take Mancienne on loan
Wolverhapton Wanderers have signed Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne on loan until December 29.
The England Under-21 international stands a chance of going straight into Mick McCarthy's squad for Tuesday's Championship clash with Swansea.
McCarthy said: "We wanted some defensive cover, because we wanted to stop conceding goals at the rate we have - 14 in five games isn't good enough.
"Michael is a good defender and very quick. He is travelling up today and could be in the squad tomorrow.
"But I wouldn't want to throw him in without doing some work with him first."
Mancienne, 20, is no stranger to the Championship having spent most of the last two seasons on loan at QPR, making over 50 appearances for Rangers."Mike Hytner / Eurosport
