Derby 2-2 QPR: Daily Mirror/Ian Bayle

Neil Warnock is ready to fight them on the beaches this season to keep Rangers’ Premier League dream alive.

And defender Clint Hill warns the players are ready to put their manager’s defiant words into action.

Warnock praised Rangers “Dunkirk spirit” after they clung on to top spot in the Championship against all the odds at Pride Park.

Hill put it down to the never-say-die ­attitude Warnock has instilled since taking over last March after leaving Crystal Palace when the club went into administration.

The full-back, reunited with his old boss after signing from Palace in the summer, says Warnock drilled the same mentality into his players at Selhurst Park.

Hill said: ‘‘That’s what he brings to a club, a really good team spirit.

‘‘He got everyone really close together at Palace and we reached the play-offs. Then unfortunately the money was pulled out, circumstances changed, and it became an uphill battle.

‘‘The lads he’s signed and those who were already here have really gelled together and it shows on the pitch. It’s never-say-die right up until the last minute.’’

Derby were cruising to three points after goals from Kris Commons and James Bailey – his first for the club since his summer move from Crewe.

But they panicked after Patrick Agyemang pulled a goal back in the first minute of injury time before Jamie Mackie snatched an ­equaliser four minutes later.

Hill said: ‘‘If we are being honest, we have no idea how we managed to get away with a point.

‘‘That was the worst we have played this season – we just weren’t at the races.

‘‘But when you’ve got players of the quality we have got you always feel you are still in with a shout no matter what and when Jamie pulled out that shot right at the end it felt like a win.

‘‘It proved the game is cruel and we know we have got to play better .

‘‘We are top at the moment but we know it’s going to be a tough old battle to stay there and there are going to be ups and downs. It’s a great start but we are not getting carried away. We are asking ourselves – can we buildon it?’’

Derby skipper Robbie Savage said: ‘‘I suppose we were a little naive attacking in the 90th minute and we left Agyemang one-on-one to pull a goal back.

‘‘After that we knew it was going to be a tough few minutes.’’

Goalscorer Commons added: ‘‘It was frustrating for us after being in such a commanding position.

‘‘It was our errors which led to their goals – missed tackles and misplaced passes.

‘‘But we will regroup. We’ve got players missing, new signings and others who have come in from the lower leagues.

‘‘It’s a learning curve, but the more games they play the better we will become. We just need to stay positive.’’ Mirror
