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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
