Fulham humiliation prompts QPR striker vow
Mackie promises Rs will bounce back from hammering at Craven Cottage
Jamie Mackie admits it is ‘back to the drawing board’ for QPR after their humiliating defeat to Fulham in the west London derby on Sunday - but believes his side will come back stronger.
Mackie, making his return from an eight-month injury lay-off, came on for the final 18 minutes when his side were 5-0 down, but had little chance to make an impact.
The striker conceded that he and his team-mates were distraught at the final whistle, but vowed that there is enough mental strength within the squad for them to bounce back.
“You need a little bit of time to reflect after a loss like that,” said Mackie. “We’ll go back to the drawing board, the most important thing is that we all stay together.

“We’ve got a lot of good characters in the squad to make sure we do that and we’re in it all together, we don’t want to get too low after losses like that.
“It’s a long season and as long as we stay level-headed I’m sure that we’ve got enough. It’s a tough league, we’ve got to stay together and not blame each other. We’ve got to be strong together and we’ll come through it.”
