QPR Boss Feeling The Pressure

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes understands he needs to start picking up results or his team could find themselves adrift at the bottom of the table, talkSPORT report.

Hughes also felt the need to praise his friendship with Rangers’ board members and is speaking like a man under pressure. QPR currently have just two points from six games going into their crucial clash with West Brom today.

“We all understand we are judged on results and at this point in time we haven’t got as many results on the board as we would have liked. But we knew it was a difficult start to the season given the fixtures we had,” Hughes said in his weekly press conference.

“Against West Ham I felt we did OK but conceded poor goals and we have done that unfortunately. But that’s more to do with continuity, in terms of selection and my ability to select a settled back four.

“We’re six games into a very long season. We understand what the requirement is at the end of the season and that hasn’t changed. We are working to the right level and we will get performances and results in the future. Everybody who has seen us this season knows we have the capability to do that.

“It’s just about getting points on the board and once we do that it will settle everybody down. I have got a great relationship with Tony and Amit [Bhatia, the vice-chairman] and everybody at the club and that will continue. They understand how I work, they know I have experience in this situation and this league and long-term I will take this club forward.”
