Warnock Wants Two or Three New Forwards

- Neil Warnock is preparing to put the 'icing on the cake' when it comes to his summer signings.
- Rangers have already swooped for Paddy Kenny, Shaun Derry, Jamie Mackie and Leon Clarke this summer, but the R's gaffer is still targeting a few more fresh faces.
- Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk this morning, Warnock revealed he has plenty of irons in the fire, but doesn't expect too many deals to happen this week.
- "There's plenty of players we're interested in," he said.
- "I'm confident we can get deals done, but not necessarily this week.
- "It's been hard work this summer, but now we're looking to put the icing on the cake.
- "I still want two or three forwards - that's the area I'm specifically targeting now.
- "We need that extra fire-power in the final third if we're going to compete."

Ben Kosky/Kilburn Times - Agyemang aims to regain his place at QPR
- FORGOTTEN man Patrick Agyemang is eager to relaunch his Loftus Road career when QPR's players return for pre-season training on Thursday.

The striker endured a nightmare season, starting just two league games under Jim Magilton before Rangers shipped him out to Bristol City for a miserable loan spell.

But Agyemang is determined to force his way back into the Rs side - even though manager Neil Warnock has already signed two new forwards and stated his intention to add more.

"It feels like a fresh start and I'm going back there to fight for a place," Agyemang told the Times. "I'm excited about going back, seeing the lads I haven't seen for a while and meeting the new players.

"Everyone had a meeting with the manager at the end of last season, just before we went on holiday. He said he liked the look of me and told me 'just make sure you're ready'.

"I know he likes his strikers and he made it clear he was going to bring more in, which is good for the club because we needed to freshen up the squad.

"It's all very well bringing loan players in, but it's better if you don't have people coming and going all the time."

Until Warnock signed up Plymouth's Jamie Mackie and Leon Clarke from Sheffield Wednesday, Agyemang and the out-of-favour Rowan Vine were the only senior forwards on QPR's books.

Agyemang and Vine formed a fruitful partnership after joining Rangers two and a half years ago, but both have struggled for fitness and form more recently.

While Vine turned down potential loan moves last season, Agyemang accepted the chance of a three-month spell at Bristol City - but admits he gained little from the experience.

A groin injury kept the 29-year-old out of the team for two months and he failed to find the net in the seven appearances he did make as City slid down the Championship table.

"I didn't really enjoy my time there - it was a bad experience," declared Agyemang. "We lost my first game 6-0 to Cardiff and things soon went from bad to worse.

"I had an injury that kept niggling at me and the team were going through a bad period, so it was an uphill battle.

"But I'm looking ahead now. I'm aiming to get a good pre-season, hopefully with no injuries and I want to make this a positive year."

Meanwhile, Rangers' Championship trip to Bristol City has been brought forward for live coverage on Sky Sports and will now kick off at 7.45pm on Friday October 22. Kilburn Times

- Reading Deny QPR McAnuff Bid
Get Reading - McDermott: There has been no interest in Reading FC's McAnuff
By Matthew Sadler June 30, 2010
Brian McDermott has dismissed reports that Reading have turned down a bid from Championship rivals QPR for Jobi McAnuff.
It was rumoured that the west London side had offered a fee in the region of £1.5million for the former Wimbledon, West Ham United, Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Watford winger, but McDermott insists he has had no contact with QPR.
He said: "I don’t know anything about that – it’s not true. We will take every transfer on its own merit, but there has been no interest at all" Get Reading
