Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie has admitted that their inability to beat Reading left his team-mates disappointed, but he believes they can stay up.
The Premier League’s only two winless sides played out a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road with Djibril Cisse cancelling out Kaspars Gorkss’ opener.
And Mackie revealed to talkSPORT he still believes they can survive in the Premier League for the second campaign in a row, despite their poor form.
He told Call Collymore: “I honestly believe that we have got the quality [to stay up], but it doesn’t matter how much quality you’ve got, you have to win football games.
“We’re a little bit gutted we haven’t nicked it at the end there with the chance that we had late on.
“At times it was really open. We probably thought it would be like that with both teams desperate for a win.
“We’re very disappointed we’ve conceded from a set-piece again. We need to tighten up and make sure the more basic things about our game are solid and with the creative flair we’ve got in our team we should be winning games like that.
“I suppose people thought with signings, this, that and the other that we’d get off to a flying start but it doesn’t always work like that."
