Alejandro Faurlin admits the players have let manager Mark Hughes down 'a little bit' following Queens Park Rangers' disappointing start to the season.
Following a summer upheaval at Loftus Road, QPR are still searching for a first Premier League win and head into Sunday's game against Everton bottom of the table after picking up just two points from seven games.
Faurlin is adamant the quality of QPR's squad has been improved by signing the likes of Esteban Granero and Park Ji-sung, and hopes results will get better with time.
"We've worked hard in training but I feel we have let down the manager a little bit," said Faurlin in the Sun Sunday.
"It's disappointing and frustrating when you see the table. We don't like to be at the bottom but we just have to look ahead and try to win the next game.
"We knew it would take time to get to know each other but obviously you never think you will have such a negative run. But we are a strong group with some good players and if we work hard then we will get results.
"We've improved the quality and it's nice to have Esteban from Real, Julio Cesar from Inter and Ji-Sung Park from United. It's a pleasure to work with these type of players.
"They are used to a different type of pressure in terms of winning games and fighting to win titles.
"We are now on a negative run and at the bottom of the table so I guess that may be different for them. But they are top-drawer professionals so with that quality we can only do well."
