Tony Pulis: Stoke boss wants six points from final five games of season

City have won only one of their past 14 league games and have slipped to just three points off the relegation places as a consequence.

This weekend they travel to Loftus Road to face QPR and their manager is happy with the mood in the camp as he targets six points from the final five games.

"We're having a difficult run but our supporters have been brilliant - they've got behind the team," Pulis told Sky Sports News HD.

"The players look bright and we've got to keep them bright, positive and focused. We've struggled in both boxes of late. We've given poor goals away and at the other end, we've not taken chances.

"Harry Redknapp (QPR boss) has always been a fighter - he's a bit like Sir Alex Ferguson, I can see him going on and on."

As to his squad's state of readiness, he added: "I'm still a little bit concerned about Matt Etherington, while one or two didn't train due to niggles

"The only people will turn things around is us and we've got to stick together. The players have trained well - their attitude has been first class

"It's going to be a tough game for us and we've got make sure everyone goes out there gives it a go.

"I've been in this situation before and it's important I stay focused and the players stay focused. Reading and QPR will keep going.

"I've known Harry a long time and they will be firing. We've got five throws of the dice to get the six points that we need."
