Onuoha not fazed by QPR run-in

Nedum Onuoha concedes QPR have the hardest run-in but is confident they can stave off relegation.

QPR are outside the bottom three on goal difference alone and face a tough-looking final 11 games, including trips to Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City on the last day of the season. Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham all visit Loftus Road before the close of the season as well, but Onuoha is not fazed by the upcoming fixtures.

"Of course [it's the hardest run-in]," he told the club's official website. "But teams playing us between now and the end of the season know that we have to go into games trying to get three points."

He added: "It's going to be just as tough for them. It doesn't matter who you play against because teams will be favourites.

"But at the end of the day it's football - and anything can happen.

"I don't really look back myself. Going into every game, you've got to try and win them.

"It doesn't matter who you're playing against. At the end of the day, everyone's got something to play for.

"If you just decide, going into a game, that they're probably going to win because they're a better team, then you're going to struggle.

"As West Brom showed on Saturday, anything's possible in this league. They're not too far ahead of us, and they still went ahead and beat Chelsea. They were probably deserved winners."
