Clint Hill had two messages for the QPR hierarchy after victory over Sunderland - buy players and stick with 4-4-2.

Hill was given his first Premier League appearance of the season in a 1-0 win, starting at left-back as Harry Redknapp went with a back four rather than the wing-backs system tried against Hull and Tottenham.

And the 35-year-old urged Redknapp to stick with a tried and tested formula as the change helped end a run of three straight defeats.

He told Sky Sports: "I think we worked well as a four, so hopefully we’ll take the positives from that.

"Everyone knows the system, probably played it most of their careers at the back and in the middle so we know our formation, know our system, and know our individual roles in it. Hopefully we’ll stick at it.

"We’ve got to take the positives from it - clean sheet and we managed to score a goal which always helps."

Hill started in place of Armand Traore, who is teh subject of a bid from Crystal Palace, and Rangers are expected to do plenty of transfer business before Monday night's deadline.

Danny Simpson is on his way to Leicester and Loic Remy is expected to join Chelsea, while Lassana Diarra has undergone a medical ahead of a move to Loftus Road.

Hill said: "It’s going to be a busy 48 hours for everybody. We need people in. I’m sure the gaffer and the chairman will do that and it gives us a two-week break now to bed them in.

"Hopefully then we can hit the ground running against Manchester United away. It doesn’t get any tougher."
