Park hopeful Rangers can survive

Park Ji-sung believes QPR are getting better every game and have a good chance of beating the drop.

After a host of high-profile summer arrivals, few could have predicted the miserable campaign the west Londoners would endure.

QPR looked destined for relegation after winning just twice in 27 league games, but back-to-back victories over Southampton and Sunderland have brought with them a new confidence.

Next up is a trip to fellow strugglers Aston Villa and former Manchester United midfielder Park believes the bottom-placed side can continue their forward momentum.

“There is four points difference now and we all know that the upcoming matches are really important,” the South Korean told the club’s official website, www.qpr.co.uk.

“Our performances in the last two matches have been good, so we have a good chance of getting out of it.

“The other players believe that as well and now we need to keep this momentum going until the end of the season.

“I’m not putting too much emphasis on winning twice in a row. We’re very satisfied that we are getting better and now we need to prepare for the next match. We need to keep winning and to get out of the relegation zone.

“The mood in the changing room after winning and losing is totally different. I can see more players laughing after winning a match, and it will have a positive effect in the next match.”
