Pat - Sloppy Goals Cost Us
Queens Park Rangers striker Patrick Agyemang believes that while results haven't gone their way of late, their ambitions remain the same.
The R's forward has had a good run in the side of late, and has responded with two goals against Middlesbrough and Watford.
Speaking to the BBC the R's front-man believes that Rangers, under the guidance of Paul Hart can still achieve a coveted playoff place.
'It doesn't help, but we're professionals and need to get on with it,' he said.
'We've been unlucky in the past few seasons, but this season I feel like we can really get there.'
Rangers have picked up only one win in nine games, scuppering their playoff hopes. Central to this has been their inability to keep clean sheets - only two shut-outs have taken place this season for the R's.
A couple of useful points against West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United could have been made better but for some disappointing goals, defensive-wise.
Pat revealed that his side are desperate to pick up all three points on Boxing Day, as Bristol City come to Loftus Road with a similarly poor recent run.
'We've had a few bad results and a few unlucky results as well, so we're desperate to get a win now to push our season on again,' Agyemang continued.
'The team has been playing well, it's just that the results haven't been going for us. We've been letting in sloppy goals, which happens in every team, but we're trying to get rid of that and get back to winning ways.'
The striker has started as a lone front-man in recent fixtures, which hasn't afforded Jay Simpson a great deal of attacking licence out-wide.
Paul Hart will now have to decide whether or not to partner the former Preston North End striker with Simpson, or stick to the formation that has improved Rangers in recent games.
