QPR pull out vital win

QPR have given themselves every chance of staying in the Premier League, after a 3-0 win over Swansea on Wednesday night moved them two points clear of the relegation zone.

Goals from Joey Barton, Jamie Mackie and Akos Buzsaky sealed a home win for the Loftus Road club, and Mark Hughes was delighted with the victory after the game.

“We had a game plan tonight and I thought the players were excellent,” the Welsh manager told Sky Sports.

“They got the job done. We’ve just got to get on with our business, and if we can do that we can be a match for anyone.

“You saw by the manner of our performance tonight that we can take on anyone here and that’s what we have to do – take maximum points from our home games and then take that form away with us.

“People looked at our run-in and told us it was too hard, but we’re getting good results at the moment. There are going to be twists and turns, but that will happen at the top and the bottom,” he admitted.

QPR have West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday next.
