Dan Bennett for the Brent & Kilburn Times....Ebere Eze struck twice to hand the R's a 2-0 win - the first time this season that Mark Warburton's side have not conceded in a game.

Lumley has been guilty of several errors this season, including a poor pass against Fulham which led to Aboubakar Kamara's winner, but insists that he is working hard to cut out his mistakes.

When asked whether the win over Preston can be a turning point in his season, Lumley said: "Yeah definitely. If you play a good game you gain a bit of confidence.

"I know I've made a few mistakes but I just keep working hard and doing the same thing, don't change anything, and that's it really.

"I accept that I'm going to make mistakes and unluckily for myself they've happened probably too much this season.

"I haven't meant it. I haven't really played a bad 90 minutes it's just one moment in a game that I get punished and it leads to a goal which gets highlighted.

"As soon as you make the mistake there's nothing you can do after it's happened. It can't really affect you mentally and you've just got to keep going.

"We had a bit of a dodgy November. We played well but just didn't get the results.

"We made some stupid mistakes really, I hold my hands up for some of them.

"I've just got to keep working hard every day and that's all you can do as a goalkeeper."

Lumley was called into action in the second half to make a great one-handed stop to deny Billy Bodin's effort on goal.

He has recently returned to the starting 11 after losing his place to Liam Kelly, who is currently recovering from a muscle injury.

Lumley recently opened up about the abuse he has received on social media but insists that he tries to use it in a positive way.

He added: "You do see it but again, it's just something that's going to happen.

"You've got to accept that it's going to happen and as much as everyone disagrees with it you can't do anything about it.

"For me, I try and use it to make myself mentally stronger and that's all you can do."

Is mistake the new buzzword or did he find it in a pre-Christmas cracker? :lol:

I'm sorry but when you are paid as much as modern day footballers you do not make mistakes every match which produces a defeat for your team.
If you were in any other profession such fundamental company threatening mistakes would find you out of the door.

Hopefully they are out of his system but he remains very much work in progress to be able to join our long list of great keepers.
Like the 10 shirt 1 carries a big responsibility.

When you are born in Hammersmith Hospital and within the sound of Loftus Road, there isn't a choice!
