Leroy Fer

QPR midfielder Leroy Fer believes the 'boost' his side get when playing at Loftus Road will be key to their survival hopes this season.

The Dutchman criticised the Rs' away form and admits they need to improve away from west London, though he insists winning at home will be key to amassing points.

Indeed, Fer thinks QPR will 'be alright' if they keep winning at Loftus Road, which will likely have a big impact on their battle against relegation.

“I’ve played one game at home so far, against Sunderland. The boost we got with the fans and their energy was amazing. I’m looking forward to Saturday," he told the club's official website.

“I think the most important thing for me and the team is getting three more points – nothing else. We’ve got to keep winning our home games and, if we do that, I think we’ll be alright.

“Stoke are a good team. They lost against Leicester last weekend, but we know what they can do following their win at Man City. They’re strong and we’ll need to be on our game – giving it our best.”

Eduardo Vargas

Elsewhere, loan signing Eduardo Vargas has vowed to score his first QPR goal soon and is targeting a permanent deal with the west London side.

The Chilean made his debut during the 4-0 defeat at Manchester United but only came on as a second-half substitute.

“My job is to score goals," he is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

"I’ve not played a lot over the past few weeks but, hopefully, I can get my first goal soon. I have to just keep working hard so that I can stay long term.”
