Queen’s Park Rangers defender Fitz Hall says his club are not scared of playing in the Premier League and are confident of avoiding relegation.

Neil Warnock guided Rangers to the Championship title last season and looks set to give those players who helped secure promotion a shot at the top flight.

Hall, 30, sees no reason why the West London club should not be able to hold their own next season, despite a 15-year absences from the top division.

“We can do well next season,” Hall told the club’s website. “The gap between the Premier League and the Championship is definitely closing.

“The sides that were promoted last season all did well and even though Blackpool got relegated, they were flying at the start of the season and surprised a few people.

“It gives everyone hope. I don’t think many people gave them that much hope, but for them to go to the last game of the season and still be in with a shot of staying up certainly does.

“If that’s anything to go by then we’ll definitely fancy our chances.

“We have got experience, but I think it helps when you have got young players who haven’t played in the league before, because they’re not scared of anything.

“They don’t know what to expect and they’ve not been there.

“A lot of people also want to prove themselves, and I think that will help as well.”
