Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has admitted that his side "made a mess" of Tuesday night's Championship home game against Queens Park Rangers.
"It's the accumulation of points at the end of the season so we can't just look at others to do us a favour," Bruce told the Birmingham Mail.
"We've made a mess of it. We'll get ready for Saturday and hopefully it goes our way then.
"It was always going to be hard, we were under no illusion about that. We have to accept it, we have to accept the defeat and move forward."
Up next for Villa is a trip to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, their last game before the international break.
