JOE Lumley feels the confidence within the QPR dressing room is starting to grow following a difficult start to the campaign.
After losing their opening four games, Rangers have picked up 14 points from their last eight fixtures with their latest coming courtesy of an entertaining 1-1 draw against Derby at Loftus Road on Saturday.
QPR came from behind to grab a share of the spoils and following the game Lumley told www.qpr.co.uk: “For the fans watching, it must have been an exciting game.
“Both teams had chances and I thought we probably had the more of them so we were unlucky not to get the win in the end.
“Derby are a good side so we take the point because it could have gone either way.
“They have got a lot of good players and while you always want to win your home games, you can’t be too disappointed with the draw when we played like we did and came back from behind too.”
Rangers have kept five clean sheets this season, including four in their last eight league games, and Lumley added: “Defensively we have been class.
“We have started to keep a lot of clean sheets and we are creating chances at the other end so you get the feeling we have started to turn things around.
“We certainly feel our confidence is growing.”
With no game this weekend, the 23-year-old says there will be no let-up at Harlington, explaining: “We go into the international break now to work hard so we are ready to go again at Ipswich.
“We want to improve in every area.”
