Sunderland has said that travelling support is vital ahead of their trip to Loftus Road this weekend.
The striker told Sunderland's website: "Loftus Road is a tight ground and the fans are close to the pitch. We always take an amazing travelling support.
"We usually sell out the away end and that is massive for us. It makes a difference so hopefully we can send them home happy.
"[QPR will] have a lot of confidence going into the game after the win last weekend but we have trained hard all week so we also have that confidence going into the match."
Sunderland have taken just one win in their last six matches in the Premier League.
