Jake Bidwell says he and his team-mates need to continue being flexible in their playing positions, following an injury crisis against Sheffield Wednesday on Easter Monday.
First-choice centre-backs Nedum Onouha and Grant Hall were missing against the Owls, with right-back James Perch filling in alongside Joel Lynch, while Bidwell ended up in the middle in the second half.
Against a lively Wednesday frontline, QPR's defence did all they could to contain them, especially in the second half where goalkeeper Alex Smithies hardly had anything to do.
"The defence couldn't be helped with all the injuries we have," Bidwell told Get West London.
"I'll play wherever I'm asked and do it to the best of my ability.
"The gaffer has said we need to be adaptable to play a few formations and you'll need to play in more than one position if you're to fit in the side.
"At this time of the season you find you have knocks and injuries, so you have to cope with it best you can.
"It's healthy competition at the moment. If you have the shirt you can't afford to step off the gas.
"All over the squad there are people ready to step in, we have a deep squad. It's healthy for me and the left-back position is no different."
