Chris Ramsey: We have a lifeline to try and survive drop

Boss Chris Ramsey insists QPR have given themselves hope in their Premier League survival fight after a spectacular win at West Brom.

Former England striker Bobby Zamora scored a fabulous lob as Rangers bagged just their second away win of the season with a 4-1 victory at The Hawthorns.

Eduardo Vargas and Charlie Austin also scored first-half goals to give Rangers a 3-0 half-time lead before Joey Barton added a fourth in stoppage time at the end of the game.

It ended Rangers' five-match losing run and they are a point from safety.

And Ramsey feels it will give his side belief ahead of their crunch clash at Aston Villa tomorrow night.

"It's going to be a big boost, when you're getting beaten every week and performing well sometimes it's hard to see a way out," he said. "The players are keeping faith. We knew it was going to be very difficult to get any sort of result here but goals always lift any team's confidence.

"We've been close to that, it wasn't our best performance, it was a good performance, but we performed similar to that against Everton (a 2-1 defeat). We just haven't taken the chances in the same way."
