Junior Hoilett says confidence is high in the Queens Park Rangers camp ahead of their six-pointer against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The bottom-of-the-table Hoops travel to Villa Park fresh from securing back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since being promoted to the top flight in 2011.

Redknapp’s side have the chance to close the gap between them and 17th-placed Villa to a single point, and Hoilett says the R’s are determined to extend their winning run.

“At training – around the building – everyone has that extra confidence,” Hoilett told QPR’s website.

“It is making us work harder each day to get ourselves out of the relegation zone. Everyone has the same motive – working hard as a team to get us out of the trouble.

“We are now looking forward to the next game and keeping the run going to get the points we need to lift us up the table.

“Saturday is going to be a six-pointer. Aston Villa are in the same position that we are in. It is going to be a scrap and a really important game.

“We are back in the fray. Back-to-back wins in the last two games have got us back into the race for survival. With our remaining fixtures we have a fighting chance to stay up.

“I’ve looked at the remaining fixtures and it is possible. We have a run of games that we can win. We have home fixtures we can win so I am trying to remain focused and work towards that goal.”
