French striker believes his side will survive on the last day of the season after late drama on Sunday saw them snatch a victory against Stoke City at Loftus Road

QPR striker Djibril Cisse is convinced his side will avoid relegation on the last day of the season against Manchester City.

A point will now guarantee safety for Mark Hughes' men after Cisse scored a last-gasp winner at Loftus Road to beat Stoke City 1-0 on Sunday.

The Hoops' final fixture of the season sees them travel to Roberto Mancini's title challengers next weekend, but the Frenchman insists they will not rely on results involving their relegation rivals to keep them up.

"It's up to us," he told talkSPORT. “We’re going to have to finish the job away at Manchester City. We know that’s going to be difficult but we can make it.

"We are not the kind of team who is going to sit and rely on another team’s result to be safe. We’re going to go there to try and grab a point.

"We need one point and to see what happens with Bolton. We have to focus on ourselves and try to do what we have to do and what happens with the other teams."

QPR currently sit 16th in the table and two points ahead of 18th-placed Bolton, who travel to Stoke on the final day having surrendered a two-goal lead on Sunday against West Brom to draw 2-2.
