Shaun Derry believes Queens Park Rangers' meeting with West Brom this weekend has become 'a huge game' in the club's Premier League quest.
The Loftus Road outfit have held their own since returning to English football's top table, but they are still struggling for consistency.
Three defeats in their last four outings have represented a step backwards, and everyone connected with the club is determined to make amends.
They plan to start this Saturday when the Baggies arrive in the capital for a fixture that will see both sides attempting to re-establish some momentum following recent wobbles.
"It's a huge game for us," Derry told QPR's official website.
"West Brom have been on a run of form, but we're playing them at home and hoping for three points.
"If we can put in a performance like we have done for the last two or three games, especially against Stoke and Man City, then we're hopeful that we can get the three points."
QPR slipped to a 2-1 defeat against fellow top flight newcomers Norwich last time out, but Derry feels Neil Warnock's side have offered enough this term to suggest that they can mix it with the Premier League elite.
He added: "I think that we're more than holding our own. We've played very well at times this season.
"Sometimes, like last week at Norwich, you think you could have got something from the game and when you don't, it disappoints you.
"But I suppose that's just the quality of the league, you've got no divine right to win games, just as we saw last weekend."
