QPR boss Marti Cifuentes is preparing for a vital match against fellow strugglers Huddersfield after his side ended their winless run by beating Millwall.
A 2-0 success at Loftus Road was Rangers’ first victory in eight Championship matches and lifted them up a place, to third from bottom.
And it means they will climb out of the relegation zone if they beat Huddersfield – the team immediately above them – next weekend.
Cifuentes said: “We need to keep on working. Today we are very happy, but we know that we have a very important game next week here again.
“We need to be very focused on the task. The next target is to win against Huddersfield.
“Enjoy the victory today – it was very important for us – and from tomorrow start to prepare for a massive game against Huddersfield at home. Feet on the ground and keep on working.
“I’m aware that no matter what the result next week it is going to be a huge task. It’s an important game but, step by step, we need to get a lot of victories, not just next week.”
Rangers struggled to create clear-cut chances before Ilias Chair broke the deadlock in the 27th minute.
They defended well and their win was sealed by Sinclair Armstrong netting a late second.
Cifuentes added: “In all the games that we’ve played, we never gave up and I never felt – even in the worst games we played – that the team was accepting the defeat.
“We have been close in all the games since I took over. We’ve always been in games but haven’t had the clinical touch.
“Today we did, and that made things easier. You could feel the tension, London derby, but definitely the first goal gave us the calm that we needed and from there we played at a very good level.
“Today’s victory was a consequence of a lot of small things we have been doing well over the last few games but unfortunately not getting the points.”
