After defeat at Sunderland undercutting recent surprising victories over some of the Premier League's elite, the 27-year-old is hoping to put a run together to help avoid the drop

Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand is looking to build upon his side’s 2-1 victory over Arsenal with a similar result on Sunday when they travel to Manchester United as they continue their battle against relegation.

The west London side looked destined to drop back into the Championship three weeks ago but victories over Liverpool and Arsenal have changed the picture.

However, those two wins were interrupted by a 3-1 loss at Sunderland and Ferdinand is hoping to put a stop to their inconsistency by beating the reigning Premier League champions.

"Our spirits are high, as you would expect after beating one of the league's in-form teams,” Ferdinand told the club’s official website.

"I said before that game that we are capable of beating anyone at Loftus Road, and we proved it again.

"We can't afford to put in a poor performance again after another good result.

"We have got to start showing progress and we can do that by producing better displays away from home."

The R’s currently lie out of the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference and the defender is looking to the club’s fans to inspire them to another against-the-odds victory.

Ferdinand added: "We have heard them all season on our travels and Sunday won't be any different.

"It's going to be a great day out for the supporters. There is no better place to go than the Theatre of Dreams.

"It is one of the first fixtures you look for and, as players, it is down to us to do our best to make it a good fay for our fans."
