Massimo Luongo says that QPR are at their best when they face the top teams in the league.
The Hoops have a remarkable record against the Championship's higher ranked teams, most notably including recent victories over Wolves and Sheffield United, and the Australian international says that their style is suited to stopping the opposition's possession-based, attacking play.
Speaking to GetWestLondon, he said: "I wouldn’t say we were underdogs, but the teams that we’ve been most comfortable against are teams that like to play. They like to get the ball down and risk it a little bit, and it pays off for them eventually.
"The players we have in our team are just so aggressive, we win the ball back in really good areas. When we played Bolton and Sunderland it sort of nullified our strengths a little bit because they were just so direct. But we have enough quality to out-play teams.
"I wouldn’t say that we’re underdogs but the teams who are up at the top end of the league are the ones who get the ball down and play a lot more than the other teams, and that’s sort of our strength that we can stop there routine and the way they play out from the back, and we’re good at that, that’s what we worked on last season when the manager came in.
"We weren’t doing it well but we’ve been doing it since day one."
