Joe Jordan has told talkSPORT that Queens Park Rangers can retain their place in the Premier League, despite sitting bottom of the table and seven points from safety.
Harry Redknapp’s arrival at Loftus Road, and several signings during the January transfer window, had perked up the club’s hopes of survival after a dreadful start to the season under Mark Hughes.
A 3-2 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa last weekend leaves them adrift in the division once again, but Jordan, a member of Redknapp’s coaching team, reckons there is belief within their squad that they can stay up.
And he reckons their recent goal scoring exploits can aid their attempts to avoid relegation to the Championship.
“There is belief there,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “The performance last week was excellent. Going forward that was the best we’ve played since we’ve got here.
“There are eight games ahead of us and there are games we think we can win.
“Harry has been in circumstances like this before and I’ve worked with him during those and Harry’s teams have achieved what we’re asking these players to go and achieve for QPR.
“The possibilities [of survival] are there we’ve just got to make sure we don’t create our own problems. If we can play the way that we have played recently we will score goals, we’ve just got to make sure those goals win us games.”
