Buzsaky: Break will refresh QPR

QPR midfielder Akos Buzsaky says that the club's enforced lay-off this weekend will help them as they fight for Barclays Premier League survival during the run-in.

Rangers were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup fourth round in January and so have a gap in the fixtures for this weekend and have travelled to Portugal for a training camp.

Buzsaky said that the break will help the team come back stronger following recent narrow League defeats against Blackburn and Wolves.

"Training is very organised - that's something that the manager is really known for"

"Now the squad is together and we can train together. We can get our shape and fitness better," Buzsaky told QPR's official website.

"We've got two massive home games to come against Fulham and Everton and everybody's going to be needed.

"I'm sure the players realise that we need to take as many points as possible."

Buzsaky added: "The warmer weather is nice - but we're here to train.

"It's much better than training in minus temperatures in England - or anywhere else!

"I am enjoying it. Training is very organised - that's something that the manager is really known for.

"We've had very organised and good sessions.

"We need to do our best in training, get fitter and fitter and put in good performances, starting next weeekend."
