JOHN Eustace has praised the QPR squad’s determination ahead of their final four league matches of the season.
Rangers – who thrashed Swansea City 4-0 at Loftus Road last time out – host Blackburn Rovers in W12 on Friday afternoon (3pm).
That victory built upon a hard-fought point earned at Millwall three days earlier and Eustace wants his squad to keep working hard between now and May.
“There is a bit more confidence in the squad now and training has been good this week,” he told qpr.co.uk. “We have got a couple of injuries and illnesses in the camp but nevertheless the lads have been fantastic.
“Their attitudes have been brilliant and we are looking forward to Friday.”
Despite brushing Swansea aside last weekend, Eustace is adamant that his players will not be taking things for granted against Rovers.
He said: “No one is getting carried away with things and it will be an extremely difficult game. Blackburn are an excellent team and it is going to be tough.
“I want us to be competitive. Every game has different challenges and we have got to make sure that we are competitive in every game that we play.
“I’m expecting a very physical game on Friday. Blackburn have an excellent manager and a lot of experienced players who have been together for a long period of time. It was a tough game up there and it is going to be just as tough at our place.”
Eustace revealed that a few members of his squad are struggling with injury but also admitted that they could be fit for Friday’s game.
He said: “Toni [Leistner] has been poorly all week, Hally [Grant Hall] is struggling with his groin and Angel [Rangel] is struggling with his calf.
“Nahki [Wells] has been playing with an injury for a long while and it is great to see his attitude and determination to play all of the time. Hopefully he’ll be fit for Friday as well.”
