Tommy Williams believes his former club QPR have far too much quality in their ranks to be dragged into a relegation battle.
The left-back spent time on loan at Loftus Road at the end of 2009 but, after failing to secure a permanent move, returned to parent club Peterborough.
Williams, who was part of the Posh side that beat QPR 1-0 last weekend, told the Kilburn Times: "I really can't see it happening to QPR - I think it's three out of five down there.
"With two or three results that can change completely, but I think QPR have got plenty to avoid going anywhere near the relegation zone. There's undoubted ability in the squad - I saw it every day not so long ago.
"The lads there were great to me, even on Saturday, and I really hope they turn it around sooner rather than later. There are some great players at QPR but, at the moment, they're not playing as a team.
"It's a little bit of a transitional period for them and I think there could be quite a big overhaul at the end of the season, which is a shame because it's a club that I like and want to do well."
