GAVIN Mahon believes QPR must mix it in midfield if they are to reproduce their home form at Bristol City this weekend.

Mahon has featured in all three of Rangers' home matches - all wins - to date and says a steely edge is essential to complement the skills of players such as Daniel Parejo, Lee Cook and Emmanuel Ledesma.

"With the crowd behind us at Loftus Road, we can sometimes not play so well and still get results," said Mahon.

"But away from home if you try and play nice attacking football without earning the right, teams can be all over you. We learned that at Sheffield United.

"You need players who are going to do the horrible work, so to speak, and if we can get that balance right, we'll be a successful team."

Rangers drew 2-2 on their last visit to Ashton Gate, on the opening day of last season.
