QPR will be keen to get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities, as they look to fire themselves back up the Championship table.
The Hoops have lost their last four games in all competitions, and manager Mark Warburton will know that results simply have to improve in the near future.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Football League World’s Jacob Potter, QPR’s Bright Osayi-Samuel revealed exactly what it is like to work under Mark Warburton.
The winger also issued an insight into the influence that the senior members of the QPR squad have had on his development at Loftus Road so far.
“He brings togetherness because there is a diversity of young players and older lads. He brings us all together and we’ve seen in games where things aren’t going our way for the young lads, you can see the older ones pushing us, even if it’s criticism, you have to take it.
“Last game I didn’t play that well, and had Angel (Rangel) had a go at me, and for myself I knew that it’s criticism. When you’re doing well, people are praising you and when you’re not, people are getting on to you. That makes me stronger, not just in football, but outside of it as well.”
The 22-year-old went on to admit that he isn’t getting ahead of himself this season with the Hoops, after an impressive first-half of this year’s campaign.
“It shows that I can take it when things aren’t going my way and for the manager, he has faith in you, regardless of whether you’re doing well.
“As long as he knows that you’re working hard and you want to achieve, then that’s all you need. We’re taking each game as it comes, we focus on that first and see where that takes us.”
Osayi-Samuel had a message for the QPR supporters as well, and is keen to continue to put in strong performances for the Loftus Road faithful for as long as possible.
“Keep supporting us. For me personally I feel like, this season I have felt so much support from the fans, it’s been unreal. Even when I feel like I haven’t played well, they make me feel like I have, that’s how crazy it is!
“I’m grateful and just want them to keep doing what they’re doing and supporting us and hopefully we can pay them back by winning games and working hard.”
Osayi-Samuel and his QPR team-mates are next in action when they take on play-off chasing Swansea City on Tuesday evening, in what is certain to be a tricky test for the Hoops.
