QPR loanee Andros Townsend insists that the R's have still got it all to play for this season despite the defeat at Aston Villa.
The R's are now seven pints adrift of safety in the Premier League and look to be in deep trouble at the foot of the table but the on-loan Spurs winger believes they still have every chance of avoiding the drop.
Townsend believes the side should have won at Villa Park but says they played well enough to retain hope that they can still avoid the drop at the end of the campaign.
"We feel like it (Villa) was an opportunity missed. Considering the way we started the game, it was a disappointing result. We should have been one or two nil up in the first 10 minutes," he said.
"It was unfortunate that they got their first goal just before half-time. That dampened our spirits.
"It can get you down, but as soon as we got back in the dressing room, the manager said, 'That's gone now, we've got to let that go and focus on the second half, because we can win this game.'
"We believed we could but unfortunately it wasn't to be.
"When we got the equaliser [to make it 2-2], coming away with a point as a worst case scenario wouldn't have been the worst thing to happen. But they scored another and it was a sloppy goal to concede - that killed us."
