QPR LEGEND Ray Wilkins believes the club face a tough task to stave off relegation.
The former Rangers and England midfielder is still hopeful his old team can avoid the drop but admits the outlook is bleak.
Mark Hughes’ men are only above the drop zone on goal difference heading into the last two games of the season, with a daunting trip to Manchester City on the final day.
City might be chasing the Premier League title and are currently sitting top of the pile, however Wilkins is equally wary of the threat posed by Stoke this weekend.
“I’ve got everything crossed for them,” he said. “They’ve got a difficult game with Stoke this weekend and then obviously going into the game with Manchester City last up, that could be very interesting.
“It’s tough for them but they’ve got the opportunity and it’s still in their hands.”
Wilkins was speaking after delivering a coaching and Q&A session to the Collis Primary School football team. The youngsters are through to the final of the npower Kids Cup tournament at Wembley ahead of the League 1 Play Off Final in May.
