The Hoops are bottom of the Premier League but moved four points away from safety by winning 2-1 at fellow strugglers Southampton on Saturday.

That victory, coupled with results elsewhere, gives QPR renewed hope of staving off relegation with just 10 matches remaining, including Saturday's home clash against Sunderland.

QPR also have a trip to face lowly Aston Villa on March 16 before they reach a busy April, which begins on Monday, April 1 with an away day at Fulham.

"We know we've got a huge task on our hands over the last 10 games of the season," Jordan told the club's official website, www.qpr.co.uk.

"March will be a crucial month - it's vitally important we do well this month.

"There are fixtures coming up against teams in a similar position to us in the table.

"That gives us an opportunity to not only put points on the board ourselves, but also to stop those around us.

"But we aren't looking any further ahead than Sunderland. That's our next game and the only one we're focusing on right now.

"It's going to be a very, very tough game and one we'll need to be at our best at if we want to get back-to-back wins.

"We'll need to maintain our performance levels from the weekend and take our chances."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
