Barbet: We want to finish positively

YOANN Barbet insists winning is the only thing in his mind as he prepares for Wednesday night’s final game of the season at West Brom.

The Baggies know victory will guarantee their automatic promotion to the Premier League, while Brentford and Fulham are waiting in the wings to pounce on second spot should Slaven Bilic’s men drop any points against the R’s.

Brentford are just one point behind West Brom while Fulham are two points off.

Barbet, who spent four years at Griffin Park before moving to the R’s, says he isn’t interested in doing anyone any favours – he just wants QPR to end the campaign on a high.

“It is exciting to be involved in this game and we want to finish the season in a positive way,” said the Frenchman.

“We are going there to win, like we do every game.

“We know it is going to be tough because West Brom know they have to win really, so it will be exciting.”

Rangers ended their home campaign with all three points against Millwall at the weekend, overcoming the Lions 4-3.

It was certainly an entertaining game, and Barbet added: “We played good, attractive football against them and we are going to try and do the same on Wednesday night.

“We have conceded too many goals this season but at the other end we have scored a lot of goals.

“This has been us this season – we play open, attractive football and score a lot but when you are open you might concede too.

“That is where we need to improve next season. We want to keep scoring like we have and defend better. This starts from me.”

As for the midweek finale where so much is at stake, Barbet added: “It is a game of football and I want to win every game I play in so I will be going to West Brom, trying to win – that’s it.”
