Loan Ranger Andros firing on all cylinders

Andros Townsend feels QPR's fight for survival is bringing the best out of him during his loan spell at Loftus Road.

Loan Ranger Andros firing on all cylinders

The winger has scored two goals in his last two matches as Rangers try to haul themselves out of danger in the Premier League.

The first of those goals was a beauty that helped secure a vital 3-1 home win against Sunderland. However, Andros experienced the other side of football's emotions when another fine strike wasn't enough as QPR lost 3-2 in a vital game at Villa on Saturday.

That means QPR remain seven points from safety with eight matches remaining.

"On a personal level it’s been really good," said Andros, now on England Under-21 duty with Tom Carroll, Danny Rose and Adam Smith.

"I’ve been going out on loan for three or four years and this is my chance to show everyone at Spurs that I’m good enough to play at this level.

"I’ve made my first five starts in the Premier League and scored a couple of goals but the main thing is how the team is performing and unfortunately, the result didn’t go our way against Villa. We will fight all the way to try and get out of this situation.

"You can feel the tension out there, of course and the last three or four matches have been massive, six-point games.

"That doesn’t affect me in a negative way, if anything, it has spurred me on to do all I can to get the right result.

"I’ve tried to play my own game and hopefully that’s come across in my performances."
