QPR boss Harry Redknapp refuses to give up on beating the drop.
The defeat leaves Rangers still seven points off safety with just seven games left.
But Redknapp is refusing to throw in the towel. He said: "I draw encouragement all the time.
"We're not giving up. We've got to beat Wigan on Sunday.
"I've said all along we need another 14 points.
"That means we've got to win four and draw two. We don't need a miracle."
