Andros Townsend insists QPR can still beat the drop.
QPR face Premier League leaders Manchester United this weekend.
Townsend told the London Evening Standard: "In the dressing room after we'd lost 4-1 at Swansea two weeks ago, we were still saying, 'We can beat United.'
"Everyone wrote off QPR last season and look what happened, so why not do it again? I followed their games before I came here and they've got some world-class players, so I could never understand why they were in this position."
