Loftus Road side in dire need of good results to move clear of the relegation zone.
Chris Ramsey has laid in his QPR charges ahead of their trip to Sunderland on Tuesday night.
The 52 year old has been drafted in as a short term replacement for Harry Redknapp, moving from his role as Head of Player Development and Academy Manager at the Loftus Road club, and has seemingly made a conscious decision to opt for the ‘tough love’ approach when it comes to dealing with his under-performing squad according to the Daily Mirror.

Tim Sherwood is hotly tipped to take over the reins at the West London side in the near future but not before Ramsey has had his say on the club’s slackers.
“It’s important that they realise it’s not acceptable to not run the required amount of kilometres and stick to the gameplan.
“When they sign a contract, they promise to do something, don’t they? The worse thing they can do is not try.” Insists Ramsey.
“You can understand when you have a free-kick and it goes over the bar and you understand when someone is in a one-on-one situation and they might be slightly better than them.
“But all professionals have an obligation to the fans to meet the promise they made to the club when they came.”
“I wouldn’t say they let Harry down totally – when you sign, you sign for the club,” he said. “Ultimately, it’s the club that has been let down because the club has a lot to lose by going down into the Championship.”
Harry Redknapp left the club for apparent medical reasons, the veteran boss needing to undergo knee surgery, leaving the QPR deep in the Premier League relegation mire.
