Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey remains adamant the Londoners can avoid relegation this season, despite being in a precarious position in the Premier League at the business end, reports Sky Sports.
The Hoops are currently 19th in the table after 30 games. They have lost 20 games in the league this season, and have the worst defence in the division. Four points adrift of safety with eight games remaining, QPR’s chances of staying up look slim given their poor form of late. Five straight defeats in the league see them in the worst possible showing ahead of an important weekend.
If they lose more ground on the sides above them in the table, securing survival will become an unassailable task. Rangers are running out of games to pick up points, and this weekend they have a task to see past West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. A win would put them in a great position to avoid the drop, but defeat could be catastrophic. Many are tipping QPR for the drop, but manager Chris Ramsey won’t be giving up until the end.
He was quoted as saying: “There’s no doom and gloom here. We’ve tried to make sure everything is as upbeat as possible otherwise it does have an effect on the confidence. What we want is high energy performances in the next three games and to obviously make sure we take our chances. We need to battle to the end. The players couldn’t have given much more in the games recently.”
