Jamie Mackie: Believes QPR still have a chance of avoiding relegation

Rangers remain rock-bottom of the Premier League after Saturday's 2-0 defeat by Manchester United. Harry Redknapp's side are seven points from safety with just 11 games left.

"It is another game down, but no-one has stretched the margin," said Mackie.

"It's important for us to try and get a result, a few back-to-back results, so we could be in there.

"It is going to be hard but we've got to keep going, keep trying to play and get a result. That's all you can do."

On Saturday's game, Mackie conceded: "I think we were playing the champions, in my opinion. They are a top draw side and he (Rafael) has scored a worldie. If he hadn't done that, maybe we were in the game.

"It's hard when we keep going 1-0 down and have to chase a game. It's tough."

QPR have matches coming up against relegation rivals Southampton, Aston Villa, Wigan and Reading, with Mackie adding: "Next is Southampton and if we can get results against the teams in and around us it is almost like a double game."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
