Djib­ril: We can stay in top flight

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 15 - By JON WEST

DJIB­RIL CISSE reck­ons cri­sis club Queens Park Rangers will still be in the Premier League next term.

The Hoops are a laugh­ing stock right now, with ev­ery­thing that can go wrong do­ing just that.

Ev­ery­one is hav­ing a chor­tle at the Four Year Plan doc­u­men­tary that made the pre­vi­ous own­ers look like to­tal am­a­teurs.

And five play­ers – in­clud­ing Cisse – have picked up reck­less red cards this sea­son. Blun­der­ing of­fi­cials also failed to spot they had ac­tu­ally scored a goal through Clint Hill’s header at fel­low strug­glers Bolton at the week­end.

Mark Hughes’ (be­low) mob ended up los­ing that one 2-1 and are now in the drop zone.

Cisse said: “It is dif­fi­cult to take, but the ref­er­ees are only hu­man and they need help.

“They need what­ever help they can get and video tech­nol­ogy is one op­tion.

“They have to do some­thing be­cause we saw how it cost us.”

But the France striker in­sisted: “With this kind of per­for­mance, there’s no doubt that we are go­ing to stay up.

Dis­as­ter

“I love the club al­ready. I will do my best to help the club stay up be­cause we be­long in the Premier League now.

“We have to pro­duce this ev­ery game and we have to score goals. We have to fight un­til the end and that’s what we are go­ing to do.”

Cisse, who had net­ted the R’s goal at Bolton, ad­mit­ted that the Tr o t t e r s ’ win­ner had been a dis­as­ter.

He said: “I’m happy to help the team, but when you don’t bring points home it’s a bit use­less.

“With five min­utes to go, you can­not re­ally con­cede a goal like that.”
