After an incredibly poor run of form for Queens Park Rangers in recent months, the three highlights were the unexpected victory over Leeds United, the Stoke City draw and last weekend’s comeback draw with Hull City.
Neither in isolation are enough to stem the growing frustrations in the fanbase, but they each at least provided different levels of relief. What matters now for manager Steve McClaren is that we use the March international break sensibly, and actually find some consistency and if we can’t win the next one when football returns (Bolton Wanderers – March 30) at the very least, maintain a small unbeaten run to grow confidence further.

QPR fans are a loyal bunch though and this week centre-half Toni Leistner took to social media to send the fans a message and to thank them for their support during this difficult period and he got the expected response in many ways from most.
Now to build on it.
And I apologies if my moaning has been a bit incessant! Your a good pro toni QPR lucky to have you ignore my moaning I don't like losing like many others. Hopefully this is a turning point. Big summer ahead! Make sure you stay

Unbelievable collapse in form since January but plenty to build on after Saturday. Hope you and all the squad come back fresh after the break and finish the season strongly.
