Christopher Samba says he is "ashamed" of QPR's Premier League defeat at Swansea and is demanding an improvement against Manchester United on Saturday.
Bottom club Rangers were beaten 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium on 9 February.
Samba, a £12.5m signing from Anzhi Makhachkala last month, said: "We shouldn't be ashamed of performances but I was ashamed of mine and the team's against Swansea."
"We need to show great attitude and commitment."
QPR, who are four points adrift at the foot of the table, face a Manchester United side boasting a 12-point lead at the top.

Former Blackburn defender Samba was a surprise addition to the QPR squad on the final day of the January transfer window, moving from Russian on a four-and-a-half-year deal worth a reported £100,000 a week.
He made his debut in the goalless draw against Norwich, QPR's fourth clean sheet in five league matches.
But their defence was torn apart by Swansea two weeks ago and 28-year-old Samba said: "I have nothing to hide - I was very angry. I said what I saw to the players.
"There's nothing worse than feeling full of regret."
QPR were 2-0 down inside 18 minutes against Swansea. Although injury-hit striker Bobby Zamora came off the bench to halve the deficit, the hosts scored two more to run out comfortable winners.
Samba said: "Bobby Zamora showed us what the Premier League is about when he came on.
"I think more of the players should have his attitude: urgency that reflects we have 12 games left and must play every one like a cup final."
