Harry Redknapp remains optimistic QPR will improve their early-season fortunes as they look to avoid dropping back to the Championship.
Since bouncing back to the Premier League at the first time of asking thanks to a play-off final victory over Derby County in May, Redknapp’s men have struggled in the opening weeks of the 2014-15 campaign.
With just one win in their opening five league outings – a 1-0 success at home to Sunderland – QPR sit in the bottom three, just above winless duo Newcastle United and Burnley.
QPR have been soundly thrashed on their two away trips this season, 4-0 at both Tottenham and Manchester United.
They will be out to amend that record on Saturday when they visit Redknapp’s old club Southampton, and the 67-year-old remains steadfast in his belief they will have more than enough to survive in the division.
“It’s not been easy,” he said in a press conference on Thursday. “Last year was the Championship, which is a different level completely, a different game.
“We’ve had two tough away games but our home form has been good.
“There’s a long way to go, we’ve got to pick up some points away from home but I still think we’ll be ok, I’m still confident.
“When we get everyone back we look a lot stronger team so I’m still confident we’ll be fine.
“We’ve got decent players. We needed to bring players in because there was hardly anyone left from last year so I’m very confident we’ll be okay.”
