Taarabt hopeful of survival

21 March 2013 17:00

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt insists his side can avoid relegation from the English Premier League.

Harry Redknapp's men sit seven points adrift of safety at the foot of the table following a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.

But the Morocco international has called for QPR to focus on the matches ahead rather than dwell on the loss.

"For us we cannot look behind anymore, we have to look forward and try to win the rest of the games as much as we can," Taarabt told the club's website.

"We still believe. There are eight games left - 24 points to play for - so we know what we have to do and we will try to do that."

The attacking midfielder, who has been absent from the starting line-up since February 23, is not among the QPR contingent departing for international fixtures.

He featured in a reserves match against West Ham to keep up his fitness, scoring in a 3-1 loss.

"It was more important to get some minutes so I'm pleased to have played a full 90, that was the main thing," Taarabt said.

"We have two weeks off so for the first-team players it was really useful.

"We are looking forward to Fulham now. We know how they play, they will be confident after beating Tottenham. We have to go there and try to win."
