Geoff Cameron believes Queens Park Rangers have turned a corner as they head to Barnsley on Saturday looking for a third victory in a week.

After back to back 2-0 victories over Preston North End and Birmingham, Rangers have now had two consecutive clean sheets to their name, after previously waiting all season for a shutout.

And as they travel to Oakwell to face The Championship’s bottom side, the Rs are now back to looking up the table, as they sit just three points from the playoff positions.

After a run of seven games without a victory before last Saturday, Cameron is now adamant the side have overcome their bad run of form, and confidence has returned to the camp with victory at St Andrews.

“Three weeks ago we would have gone under, we would have given a goal up, put our heads down and it would’ve been a tough one,” the versatile American said.

“It shows the attitude of the guys and the belief that we have in the dressing room, we have big shoulders and we can take it. We responded in the last few weeks and we’re heading in the right direction.

“Things are now falling our way, in the beginning it was tough, we weren’t capitalising on our chances. And when these things are happening you put your head down.

“Now we have belief in each other, there’s a more positive attitude, the guys believe in one another.”

If they were to avoid defeat on Saturday, it would make it four matches unbeaten for Mark Warburton’s side, which would be their longest run without tasting defeat all season.

The Hoops will once again be without Liam Kelly and Yoann Barbet for the trip to North Yorkshire, with both still on the side-lines after lengthy injury layoffs.

Angel Rangel is also expected to miss out once again, after not being passed fit to play in midweek.

One man sure to be among the first on the team sheet in Bright Osayi-Samuel, after the 21-year-old’s eye-catching goal on Wednesday which sealed all three points for Rangers.

After picking the ball up on the edge of his own box, the former Blackpool man tore down the left before smashing past Connal Trueman in the Blues’ goal, and Warburton knows he has a talent on his hands.

“We have seen that in training,” he said.

“He is a lad who hasn’t had the benefit of an academy education and he knows he has lots of work to do but he has outstanding attributes.

“He showed superb composure and I am delighted for him. He has worked really hard. He has been patient to get in but he got his chance and he’s really taken it.”

Despite their lowly position, Barnsley will be anything but pushovers in this one. The Tykes have gradually picked up under new manager Gerhard Struber, and have picked up four points from their last two home matches.

But Rangers will take heart from their impressive recent success against Barnsley, having won eight out of the last ten meetings with Saturday’s opponents.

Victory here will give the Rs a sixth away win of the season and put them in touch with the playoff places ahead of the busy festive period.
