WHAT THE BOSS HAD TO SAY…
“We can only focus on ourselves,” Lampard told RamsTV. “We have a game in hand on Boro and we play Bristol City so it’s so tight.
“You can’t count out anyone below us, even though the gap is slightly bigger at the moment. We firstly have to focus on QPR back at home and we need to rest and recover in preparation for that game.
“It’s easy to talk about it but we have to win games. We need to understand that other games around that, we can win or lose and so can they so there are four games in the Championship and that is a lot of football and a lot of twists and turns too.
“Monday is our only focus at the minute and we need to be ready for it.”
