MARK Hughes has promised QPR's fringe players a clean slate – but hinted that he needs to whittle down the size of his squad.
Rangers have more than 40 professionals on their books, with the new boss keen to make additions in the January transfer window.
However, Hughes has offered fresh hope to the likes of Hogan Ephraim and Rob Hulse, who failed to make QPR's 25-man squad for the first half of the season.
Asked whether everybody with be given a fair crack of the whip, Sparky said: “I would think so. There's a big group in fairness and that brings it's own difficulties.
“I've always tried to involve everyone on the periphery. That's the way that I work. We'll give everybody a chance.”
