Rio Ferdinand tells QPR fans of determination

QPR ace Rio Ferdinand says the players are determined to correct their poor form.

A number of key players are on international duty, but those remaining at QPR are still working away to improve.

QPR sit bottom of the Premier League with four points from seven games, indicating a tough relegation battle lies ahead.

Manager and players have come in for criticism, including former England international Rio Ferdinand.

The ex-Manchester United defender used his Twitter page to assure fans the players left behind during international week are working hard.

Smaller training sessions can lead to added focus from the players still around, and they will be needed to help the players prepare for the Premier League's return.

With players involved in internationals likely to come back with knocks and tired from their excursions, those like Ferdinand will be needed to step up and produce solid performances.

QPR's next fixtures are at home to Liverpool and Aston Villa, before travelling to Chelsea and then hosting Manchester City.
