Josh Murphy is another Norwich City player with a point to prove this weekend for loan club MK Dons.
The 20-year-old had been earning rave reviews for the Championship new boys, but Murphy admits he let his standards drop in the midweek league defeat at Huddersfield.
Murphy's Norwich club mates aim to bounce back from a Premier League hammering at Newcastle when they host West Brom on Saturday, and the wide player is targeting a similar response in the Dons' testing trip to QPR.
'I'm loving my football and I have really been enjoying it,' said Murphy. 'You are only as good as your last game and I wasn't good enough so on that basis I wasn't happy with my own performance. I haven't done well this week but previously I feel I had done okay. That is my aim, to come to MK, play games, create chances and score goals and I feel I have managed that in the main so far. I just need to keep doing it. QPR is a chance to put things right and this set of lads are not the type to dwell on results, we'll keep our heads up and if we go in the right frame of mind we'll be fine.'
Karl Robinson's side had picked up four points from their previous two games before a no show at Huddersfield.
'Frankly it wasn't good enough. We set our standards throughout the season and we have been great and even when we weren't winning we played well,' Murphy told the Dons' official site. 'We were a little bit complacent. The way we played wasn't like a normal MK team. We're hard-working, we'll re-group and it's only a matter of time before we pick up results. There is another 30-odd games left so we can't feel too down on ourselves.
'It was a real sucker punch and the way we played wasn't good enough. Now we have to dust ourselves down and get ready to go again at QPR.'
