Queens Park Rangers defender Angel Rangel has claimed that the team has ‘strong character’ which shone through in Saturday’s victory over Stoke City.
Mark Warburton’s side came back from two goals down to beat Stoke on the weekend as they climbed further away from the relegation zone.
The R’s found themselves 2-0 down early in the game, but were able to peg back the Potters to make it 2-2 before half-time. QPR then won the game in the second half with two more goals.
It was an important result for Warburton and his team, as the R’s had not seen victory since a win over Leeds United back in January.
Rangel has stated that the team is showing their character and that he believes the side deserve more points than they’re currently on.
Speaking to the QPR official website, Rangel said: “Our performances in the last few games have deserved more points but that is football for you. When you don’t take your chances and concede soft goals then it is always going to be difficult.
“The good thing about this team is that we have a strong character and we’ve kept going and the last two games have been good.
“The four points have been very welcome and now we have Forest away, which we know will be a tough one.”

QPR have been inconsistent throughout the campaign, and the one key problem that they seem to have is conceding goals. If that could be improved they’d be a threat to any side in the division.
It’s set to be a run-in that could set up the side for next season, with Warburton’s side far from relegation and not looking likely to challenge for a place in the top six.
He’ll have been happy to have seen the character that Rangel refers to and will likely hope that will continue for the rest of the campaign.
The R’s now face a trip to Nottingham Forest where they’ll be looking to spoil the Reds’ chance of promotion.
