QPR defender Jake Bidwell is hoping that a positive run of form can propel the club into the playoff places.

The Hoops recorded home wins against Wolves and Sheffield United this week to end a poor run of results, but Bidwell said he's encouraged by how quickly things can change in the Championship.

Speaking to GetWestLondon, he said: "With us not winning in seven, I think were were four points off the play-offs before Saturday, that just tells you everything you need to know about the league, it’s just so tight.

"If you can stay in and around that main group of teams; at the moment there looks like there’s going to be 13 or 14 teams going for those six spots so if you can hang in around in that main group and put a couple of really good runs together at the right times then you could find yourself in the play-offs.

"We’re not getting carried away but we’ve beat the top two in the last two games so we’ve got nothing to be scared of."

Despite not winning in seven games, QPR recorded five draws in this time and were unfortunate not to record three points, however Bidwell says it's always better to get some victories on the board.

"I don’t think anyone was too down because in the main performances have been good but the world’s a better place when you’re winning games, and that’s the fans included, especially with the news that came out in the last week or so," said Bidwell.

"But if we can keep people talking about what’s happening on the pitch then that’d be great."

How QPR could set up as they look to end away hoodoo against Nottingham Forest

The Hoops face a Nottingham Forest side who sit level on points with them in the Championship, but Bidwell says the squad are feeling ready for the test.

He said: "In terms of confidence you don’t get any more confidence than what you get from beating the top two in the last two games.

"No-one is getting carried away but we’ve got nothing to be scared of. We’ll go there and look to get another win."
