Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp expects "tough start" against Hull City

Harry Redknapp expects Queens Park Rangers to endure a "tough start" to their Premier League campaign against Hull City.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp believes that his players face a difficult start to their return to the Premier League next season.

The West London side, who earned their place back in the top flight by securing a 1-0 win over Derby County in the Championship playoff final, will face Hull City at Loftus Road on August 16.

QPR's full fixture list was announced today, with a trip to Redknapp's former club Tottenham Hotspur scheduled for the following weekend.

"It's a tough start," Redknapp told the club's official website. "Hull's going to be a tough opening game.

"They did a great job last year, Steve Bruce brought some good players in and they'll be looking to improve again this year. They'll be tough opposition."

QPR will also face former champions Manchester United in their first five games.
