QPR’s survival in the Premier League will ultimately come down to how they perform on their travels against fellow strugglers, according to Karl Henry.

Chris Ramsey’s side find themselves in the bottom three after two successive home defeats but battling midfielder Henry does not believe the matches against the top sides will decide where they end up.

The R’s have yet to travel to fellow strugglers Crystal Palace, WBA, Aston Villa, and Leicester, on the very last day of the season, and Henry thinks it is those games which will decide where they finish.

He told West London Sport: “I don’t want to tempt fate, but will West Bromwich Albion and teams around us have the same quality as Arsenal and Tottenham?

“If we play like against teams around us, like we did against them we’ll get wins.”

The former Wolves man is aware that the R’s currently have the worst record of any side in the Premier League when it comes to picking up points on their travels, with just one win so far in the campaign which came at Sunderland in Ramsey’s first game in charge.

Prior to that under previous boss Harry Redknapp they had not managed to pick up a single point on their travels.

The R’s are next in action at Crystal Palace, where they are currently priced 4.40 in the match betting and it is a massive game, which Henry is well aware of.

He scored the last time he was there with Wolves although his goal came in the 90th minute of a February 2010 FA Cup replay which Wolves lost 3-1.
