DUNNE’S DE­LIGHT AT NEW R’S DEAL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

RICHARD DUNNE says noth­ing other than the Pre­mier League will do for QPR af­ter ex­tend­ing his stay at Lof­tus Road for a year.

For­mer Manch­ester City de­fender Dunne has trig­gered an ex­ten­sion to his cur­rent deal af­ter star­ring at the heart of the R’s de­fence this sea­son.

But Dunne, who missed the whole of the 2012-13 cam­paign through in­jury, says pro­mo­tion is all that mat­ters.

“The aim from the start of this sea­son was to win pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier League and that re­mains the case. That’s all we’re con­cen­trat­ing on at the mo­ment,” said Dunne.

“Our per­for­mances haven’t been too bad re­cently, and if we can keep that up and con­tinue to win games we’ll go into those play-offs full of be­lief and full of spirit.

“What we have to do now is try to get as many points on the board as pos­si­ble, and also to men­tally pre­pare our­selves for the play-offs.

“Af­ter miss­ing a year through in­jury, to come back and play so many games is great. If we can kick and fin­ish on a high, that would be the ul­ti­mate end to the sea­son.”
