Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has assured the club’s fans that he and his teammates will work hard to return to winning ways.
Harry Redknapp’s side suffered their second successive defeat in the Premier League on Sunday when they went down 2-0 to West Ham United away from home.
An own goal from Nedum Onuoha and a header from Diafra Sakho just before the hour mark saw the Hammers win the clash at the Boleyn Ground.
The loss saw Rangers remain at the foot of the league table with four points from seven matches, but Ferdinand insists that the team will bounce back after the two-week international break.
Not the result we wanted yesterday! The next two weeks we will be working hard as a team to put things right.. Thanks for all your support— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) October 6, 2014
QPR gained promotion from the Championship at the end of last season and were expected to perform better than the other two promoted sides, Burnley and Leicester City.
However, the London outfit have played poorly and struggled to match the Premier League teams. Burnley, too, are struggling and are level on points with QPR, while Leicester are five points clear of the relegation zone.
On paper, Rangers do have a team that is strong enough to stave off relegation, but they are failing to get the results on the pitch. Redknapp needs to sort out his team between now and when the league action resumes.
Not that it will be easy for QPR to return to winning ways on October 19, because Liverpool will visit Loftus Road.
