Hall: Points matter over performances now

QPR head into this weekend's game at Birmingham City just five points above the relegation places.

Although performances have been improving, the points have struggled to tally up in 2017, with the R’s only winning two matches this calendar year.

“We have to start putting the ball in the back of the net. We’ve been playing really well but we can’t get the results together,” Hall told

“I don’t think it really matters how we’re playing at the moment, we just need to get results. Even if we play poorly for 90 minutes but get a 1-0 win, then so be it.

“The position we’re in, we need points. We’re playing teams around us now in the next few games, so we need to be winning these games."

Hall had a six-month loan spell at Saturday’s opponents Birmingham City, and has spoken very fondly of his time at St. Andrews.

“It was a very big club for me to go to," he said.

"It was my first Championship loan so it was a great experience for me.

"Obviously it's a massive club, so I’m looking forward to going back there.”

Similarly to us, Birmingham have struggled to pick up points recently, and have managed only one win in their last 13 games.

Hall believes frustrating the Blues, and their fans, early on could be key.

“They’re in transition with Zola coming in, changing the way they play," he said.

"It’s going to be a tough game, every game in this league is.

“If we can get a goal early doors and quieten their fans, that will be a plus for us.

"We’ve got to go into the game like we’ve been going into every game recently, but we need to pick up three points."

Playing in a new midfield position under Ian Holloway, Hall has been a virtual ever-present for the R's.

“I’m happy to be in the team, and if the gaffer needs me to play there, I’m more than happy to do so," he said.

"It’s about the team, not about me - we need to pick up results in the next few games.”

Obviously it's a massive club, so I’m looking forward to going back there.
