Ignore rivals - Derry
Queens Park Rangers,
QPR midfielder Shaun Derry says the side must concentrate on what they are doing on the pitch rather than what their rivals are up to.
As the battle to avoid the drop heads into the final few weeks of the season the R's still find themselves in all sorts of trouble, although they are currently out of the bottom three. Derry, rumoured to be on his way back to Leeds in the summer to team up with former boss Neil Warnock, claims the team must make sure they do their job rather than rely on others to help them stay up, and he says Wigan's win at Arsenal shows you cannot rely on anyone else. "Monday night just goes to show that you've got no say in any other teams' performances or results," he told the club's official website. "I don't think anyone would have foreseen that result - especially with Arsenal playing at home. "But I suppose every time you get to the last four or five games of a season, random results get thrown your way and it is how you handle them. "I don't think this season has gone to plan for many clubs. The sides towards the bottom of the table this year have probably surprised themselves that they've not performed as well as they could, and should, have done."
