QPR boss Chris Ramsey is wary of his message to the players becoming tired.
Ramsey knows simply rollicking his players each week won't be enough to save QPR's season.
"We've had some strong words before each game to be honest, and sometimes you have to take a different tact because the effect of that speech goes," Ramsey said. "Sometimes you have to look at the game and the situation, and use different strategies to get the players ready to perform.
"The players didn't throw the towel in against Palace. We talked about making sure the fans weren't embarrassed any more in the second half of the game.
"So Matty (Phillips) scores a goal like he'll probably never score again. If he shoots from there again I don't think I'll be too happy, unless it goes in."
