Harry Redknapp's side remain rooted to the bottom of the division and lie seven points from safety with only 11 games remaining this season.
After suffering a 2-0 defeat against Manchester United, the Hoops forward has turned his attention to upcoming fixtures against Southampton, Wigan, Reading, and Aston Villa.

"If he hadn't done that, maybe we were in the game. It's hard when we keep going 1-0 down and have to chase a game. It's tough.
"Next is Southampton and if we can get results against the teams in and around us it is almost like a double game."
The 27-year-old took some consolation in the fact that the margin between QPR and safety was not extended over the round of results as a whole.
"It is another game down but no-one has stretched the margin," Mackie added. "It's important for us to try and get a result, a few back-to-back results, so we could be in there.
"It is going to be hard but we've got to keep going, keep trying to play and get a result. That's all you can do."
