QPR manager Harry Redknapp lambasted his players after an embarrassing FA Cup defeat to third-tier MK Dons that further highlights their need for reinforcements.

The west Londoners are bottom of the Premier League and five points adrift of safety, but were given a chance to get a morale-boosting win against npower League One opponents. However, MK Dons had no interest in that script, progressing to the fifth round with a 4-2 win that made a mockery of the fact QPR were 31 places higher coming into the game.

With Manchester City coming to Shepherd's Bush on Tuesday, Redknapp chose to make nine changes and believes the only reason that backfired is because his players failed to perform. "If you look at the team, what is it? An England goalkeeper [Rob Green], a right-back from Man United [Fabio], a left-back in Armand Traore," the QPR boss said.
