What QPR coach Marti Cifuentes said after a vital victory over Swansea city about Championship

Marti Cifuentes insisted the battle for Championship survival is not over after QPR won at Swansea to move six points clear of the relegation zone.

Steve Cook’s second goal in as many matches secured a vital victory for Rangers, moving them up to 16th in the table.

But boss Cifuentes said: “I know that we need more points. When I see the table I see that we need to collect more points.
“We’re in a good moment of course – the team is improving, getting better, stronger and feeling good – but we need to be very aware that there are six games left and we need to pick up more points.

“We need to be very humble. At this stage of the season it’s a big battle. We need to keep working. We will not stop.”

Cifuentes made five changes to the starting lineup, including a recall for fit-again Morgan Fox, who was chosen over Ziyad Larkeche to replace the ailing Kenneth Paal.

Cifuentes added, “It was about knowing what we had to do.

“I believe Swansea had around 45 or 50 crosses into the box today, which is one of the reasons we decided to play with this back four.

“When they arrive in the last third the main thing is for them to cross and I think we did a good job defending it.”
