KASPARS Gorkss believes QPR must match Wolves' endeavour if they are to follow in their footsteps and earn promotion next year.
Rangers were again cast in the role of awkward party guests on Saturday as a 1-0 defeat ensured promotion to the Premier League for Mick McCarthy's men.
The Rs defender, who completed the game with a thick bandage to protect the stitches in a head wound, reflected: "Fair play to Wolves - I thought they played with a lot of enthusiasm and congratulations to them.
"I think the one thing that stands out about Wolves is the 100 per cent effort in every game. They chase every ball, they work really hard, harder than others and that's what we need to do next year.
"Maybe then the other things will come. Obviously our goal this season was to go up, but hopefully next year at this time we are the ones who go up and our fans will be the ones celebrating."

The result at Molineux meant QPR dropped to 11th in the Championship and cannot now finish higher than ninth place, even if they win their last two games against Plymouth and Preston.
Nevertheless, Gorkss insists the Rs will not be treating those fixtures lightly as they aim to set down some kind of marker for the following season.
"Hopefully we can get two wins to finish the season on a high," he added. "I think winning is a habit and you can't ever say 'this game doesn't matter, but the next one does'.
"The next one against Plymouth is our last home game, so it matters for us to say thank you for the season to our fans and end on a good note at Loftus Road.
