Cape Town - Queens Park Rangers need a "miracle" if the London club are to add a striker to their struggling squad in January according to Harry Redknapp.

The R's boss suggested that the addition of another striker is highly unlikely reports talkSPORT.

Charlie Austin's goal record has suffered as a result of a hectic festive season fixture list and the lack of support.

Redknapp said that his side are slowly dealing with the intense schedule.

“That’s four games in a short space of time for Charlie Austin, that’s a lot of games for him,” said Rednapp.

“He’s probably never played that amount of games before.

“He had to play because the simple facts are I’ve only got two strikers at the club, him and Bobby Zamora You can’t keep going with two strikers.

“Looking at what you need and getting what you need are two different things. We’re just looking for a loan or two but where are you going to find it?

“Who is going to loan you a striker to play in the English Premiership? You need a miracle to find one, it’s very difficult."
