NEIL Warnock is convinced two of his journeymen are ready to make an impact in the top flight – even though the Rs boss is ready to add five new players to his roster.
He said: “I think Loftus Road’s small pitch will suit Shaun Derry and Clint Hill.
“They will more than play their part on a surface they can cover easily, and I think they’re ready to surprise quite a few."
Thirty-three year-old Derry admitted it was a dream come true to make the top flight after 16 years of trying.
He said: “I wish it would have come earlier, but now that it’s here throughout the close season I intend to stay as fit as possible, and prepare even more so for the Premier League.
“When the fixtures appear in July – that’s when it will sink in I’ve finally made it.”
