QPR caretaker manager Mick Harford was relieved to salvage a point from his side's Coca-Cola Championship trip to Blackpool and has called for a period of stability at the club to get their play-off push back on track.

A superb 30-yard shot from Matthew Connolly gave QPR a deserved share of the spoils as Blackpool were denied a first league victory over Rangers in 38 years.

Harford said: "This is a difficult place to come to. Blackpool started really well and controlled the game in the first half.

He added: "But we had a chat at half-time and we started to create some excellent opportunities.

"I think what this club needs after a difficult time is a period of stability. The board has asked me to take charge of the first team and I shall continue to do that."

Harford has taken temporary charge of the Loftus Road club after Paul Hart departed as manager after just five games earlier this week.
