Danny Gabbidon: Says QPR need to believe in themselves more ahead of Man City test
Danny Gabbidon has revealed QPR will look to be fearless when they host Manchester City on Saturday evening.
Table-topping City have won their last three on the road in the Premier League but Gabbidon hopes entering the game with a more confident approach will benefit his side.
The defender believes the Loftus Road outfit will learn from their mistakes in the 3-1 defeat at Tottenham after claiming they were too respectful of their opponents.
"We showed them a bit too much respect in the first half and we'll learn from that," he told the club's official website.
"I think we showed in the second half what we're about and we've got to approach the City game in a similar fashion.
"We can't be scared of these teams. We need to go out there and believe in ourselves a bit more.
"It's 11 versus 11 at the end of the day and we can't afford to give them too much respect.
"We'll just give it our best shot and see where it takes us on the day."
