QPR defender Alex Baptiste has called on his team-mates to show the same character which they displayed against Brentford when they take on Preston this weekend.
The Hoops salvaged a late draw against the Bees on Monday night, a result which the defender said was encouraging after a disappointing few weeks.
Speaking to GetWestLondon, he said: "It was a bit of a weird one to be honest because we didn't know how to take it, it happened so quick. We didn't feel like we were two goals worse off than them performance-wise, because it was quite an even game.
"They scored two very good goals but to comeback and gain a point after being two goals down was an encouraging sign. It shows that we've got a lot of fight in this team and don't give in when we're down."
"It would have been easy to fold after three defeats and going 2-0 down would have made it easy to give in, but we showed the fight and spirit in the squad, which is a great quality to have."
The trip to Deepdale will see Baptiste return to the club he spent last season on loan with, and he's expecting the Lilywhites to take the game to QPR.
He said: "Obviously I was there last year and they're a very good side at home and will come out all guns blazing, so it's going to be a tough test but we'll go into that mentality that we showed against Brentford, and you never know what could happen.
"We haven't won away from home this season but if you look at the results it's not like we haven't been in the games. We've got to overcome it, we've got to win away from home, we've got to know how to play away from home and it's going to be a challenging test."
