QPR's Kevin Bond wants creative additions despite a 1-0 win over Ipswich
QPR assistant manager Kevin Bond says the club remain determined to add to their squad after a 1-0 victory over Ipswich.

Rangers maintained their unbeaten start with a 1-0 victory against Ipswich at Loftus Road, where substitute Tom Hitchcock, 20, netted a last-minute goal on his debut.
But Bond, speaking in place of manager Harry Redknapp, who is on crutches following a knee operation, believes new faces are still required.
He said: "We're everything that we weren't last year - everybody's together and you do feel that.
"If I'm really honest, I think we're short in the creativity department. You need goals and creativity and I think Harry likes that too.
"So I don't think we're finished yet. I think we might do a bit of business between now and the end of the window. We'll add to our squad if we can."
Rangers hit the bar twice, first through Clint Hill and then Charlie Austin, before Hitchcock tapped into an empty net after Austin's shot had been parried by Town keeper Scott Loach.
Striker Hitchcock, signed after being released by Blackburn last year, is the son of QPR goalkeeping coach Kevin.
"That will be a happy household tonight," said Bond.
"It was getting late in the game so we thought we'd try him - and there he was at the far post.
"We had a number of chances and when Charlie hit the bar we thought maybe it wasn't going to be our day, but the lads kept going and we did it in the end.
"We hope that when we look back at the end of the season days like this will be important for us."
Ipswich's defeat was a sickening blow for manager Mick McCarthy, who took little comfort from his team's determined performance.
"I don't think they should have beaten us," he said.
"We just didn't do enough in that 90th minute. I thought it was going to be a good point until we didn't defend in the last minute.
"I'm pleased with the group of players I've got, but playing well and getting beaten isn't my idea of fun. We've been beaten so have got diddly squat to show for it.
"I thought it was going to be one of those days when Rob Green pulled off a save from Daryl Murphy.
"We were even with them, certainly in the first half. But if we want to contest the top six then pretty good has got to become good - we've got to get points.
"The players are bitterly disappointed, as you'd expect them to be. It's got to be a point and we haven't got one, so there's no point patting ourselves on the back."
