Queens Park Rangers winger Andros Townsend has backed his side to go on a winning run to avoid relegation.

Townsend, who is on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scored in QPR's 3-1 win over Sunderland, which moved Harry Redknapp's side within four points of Premier League safety.

The young midfielder believes that QPR have turned the corner following two victories in a row and are treating each game as a "must-win".

"I don't think we won in my first three games here, but our heads didn't drop because we knew how good we are as a team in terms of the players we've got," Townsend told reporters.

"We knew once we got that first win we could go on a run. We've got two wins now and hopefully we can carry on doing that. We've got massive six-pointers and that is why our heads didn't go down.

"We keep saying each game is a massive game and that it is a must-win but as a team we are relishing that."

QPR are bottom of the Premier League table on 23 points.
