Liam Moore has called on the Royals to 'be brave' at Loftus Road, as he and his team-mates go in search of three points against Queens Park Rangers.
Steve McClaren's side have recovered from a sub-par start to the season to now sit just two points outside the top six in the Championship.
The Royals have been recovering and preparing for a tough test at a tough location, with the Loftus Road stands sitting close to the pitch and creating what can become an intense atmosphere.
On what the Royals need to do against QPR, Moore said: "We've got to be compact. Against Millwall I thought we were a bit better defensively, but the goal was obviously frustrating.
"I think I gave the ball away sloppily in the first half, it was a foul in the middle of the park and quite far out. Then to whip it around the wall is disappointing, but if we're defensively compact and agressive then we should be fine.
"I'd imagine QPR will try to be a bit more offensive than Millwall. It's a small ground, it's compact, they'll try and make it hard for us to play.
"We've just got to be brave and try and do it."
