Emmanuel Adebayor insists the players believe they can achieve this season’s main goal - a place in the top four of the Premier League.
The striker admits we’re going through ‘a difficult moment’, magnified by Sunday’s disappointing FA Cup semi-final defeat against Chelsea at Wembley.
Always the optimist, ‘Ade’ takes heart from knowing our destiny is in our hands as we sit fourth in the Premier League with five games remaining, starting at QPR on Saturday.
“The most important thing now from QPR until Fulham at the end of the season is to finish in the top four,” stated Ade.
“We are going through a difficult moment but the quality is still there, as you could see in the first half against Chelsea.
“The life of a footballer is about good moments and difficult moments and we’re going through a difficult moment now. We have to show character, personality and fight for the team and the fans.
“We have to believe in ourselves that we can do it, and we will do it.
“We have great players and we know what it takes to get out of a difficult moment and that’s what we intend to do against QPR. It won’t be easy, but we have that belief.
“At the beginning of the season our target was to finish in the top four and we are in a good position. We have to keep going and fight to the end of the season.”
