Former QPR midfielder Marc Bircham believes the club can become an established Barclays Premier League club but only if they survive their relegation scrap this season.

The 33-year-old ex-Canada international now works as part of the youth team set-up at Loftus Road and he believes QPR can retain their top-flight status and build upon it.

He told Press Association Sport: "I think we can definitely do it. The result against Liverpool was a massive result - not just for the three points but for the confidence and belief of not only the players but the fans as well."
