QPR’s Furlong prefers right-back role

QPR defender Darnell Furlong has insisted he prefers playing at right-back and regards his switch to centre-back as purely temporary.

Furlong has been deployed in the centre of defence in recent matches.

“I don’t mind playing there but I definitely prefer playing at right-back and see myself as a right-back,” he said.

“Doing a job for the team is what footballers have to do. I’m more than happy to do that for now and do my best when I can.”

Having drawn at Millwall and thrashed Swansea 4-0 in their previous two matches, Rangers were beaten 2-1 at home by Blackburn on Good Friday and are still not mathematically safe from relegation.

They have three matches remaining and are eight points clear of 22nd-placed Rotherham with a significantly better goal difference than the Yorkshire side.

“I don’t think we’ll be happy with just another point. We want to win the games,” Furlong said.

“We’ll be doing everything we can to win those games. We just need to have a similar attitude to the Millwall and Swansea games.”
