QPR veteran Ryan Nelsen admits he's shocked by their winless run.

The west Londoners prop up the top flight after failing to record a victory in any of their first 16 league games - officially the worst start any club has made to a Premier League season.

"We want to win. It's horrible, feels like a slap in the face and you do anything to find a formula," said the centre-half.

"We are one or two wins away from being right back in that pack. If we get to the teams, they will start looking over their shoulder at us."
