Queens Park Rangers defender Clint Hill wary of Bolton Wanderers
While the Whites were losing their first match of 2013/14 to early leaders Nottingham Forest 3-0 at the weekend, Harry Redknapp’s men were snatching a last-gasp winner against Ipswich to maintain their unbeaten streak.
But Clint Hill, who made his 100th club league appearance in that match, knows it will not be easy against a Bolton side managed by his former Crystal Palace team-mate Dougie Freedman – particularly off the back of that Forest defeat.
He told the Rangers website: “It is a very good start. It is giving us more confidence and a bit more positivity. But Bolton will be another tough game.
“Dougie has put a good team together and they will be well briefed so we need to show the same desire and commitment as we have done so far this season.”
Hill has had some bad times against the Whites, red carded in the final minute of the 4-0 home humbling by Wanderers on opening day in 2011, then having a clear “goal” in the return Premier League fixture not given despite television replays showing it was well over the line.
The Whites went on to win 2-1 but it was they, and not Rangers, who succumbed to the drop.
