QPR must maintain run says Shaun Wright-Phillips
QPR undefeated in four matches
Tuesday 18 December 2012
Shaun Wright-Phillips is hoping QPR can kick on from their first league win of the season in this weekend's trip to Newcastle.
QPR secured their maiden victory at the 17th time of asking on Saturday when they beat Fulham 2-1 at Loftus Road.
The victory extended their unbeaten streak under Harry Redknapp to four matches and Wright-Phillips wants that fine form to continue at St James' Park this weekend.
"We got everything we deserved," the winger told the club's official website. "We controlled the game from start to finish. I think they only had two corners and one deflected shot which went in.
"Let's not get it wrong, Fulham are a great team. They showed us that last season so to come up against them and control the game in the way we did just shows we are a team that's moving in the right direction.
"I thought we defended really well. When we had to put our foot in, we did that.
"We've got to try to keep that unbeaten run going and keep picking up points, no matter who we are up against.
"We need to be as strong and as resilient this weekend as we were on Saturday."
Wright-Phillips is enjoying a new lease of life at QPR, with his performances improving vastly since Redknapp succeeded Mark Hughes.
However, the 31-year-old added: "My recent performances have a lot to do with my team-mates and the fans, who have been very supportive of me especially over the last few games.
"Even if I have made a mistake they've still urged me on. Considering the position we are in, that's just what we need.
"That sort of backing and support makes a massive difference for me and for the rest of the team. It gives you the confidence to get the ball and try again, and the next time it might come off."
