Hughes vows to lead Queens Park Rangers to Premier League safety


Mark Hughes insists he will lead Queens Park Rangers to safety.

The Londoners only secured their Premier League status on the final day of last season, when despite losing 3-2 at Manchester City, they avoided relegation by a single point. After that dramatic match at the Etihad Stadium, Hughes promised fans there would be no repeat of such a struggle as long as he remained in charge.

However, this season has started disastrously for Rangers, with the two points they have collected from their opening six matches seeing them prop up the table. And although this has led to speculation over the future of Hughes, the Welsh coach continues to insist that he is the right man to lead the club out of danger and up the standings.

“We are six games into a very long season, we understand what was the requirement at the end of the season and that hasn't changed,” he said. "We are working to the right level - I've got great support here, and that will continue. They know that I have experience in these situations and in this league and long term we will take this club forward."

"There is real belief in what we are doing, we understand what is required, it was always going to take a little bit of time because we have got a lot of players that are new in terms of the group. We are still getting to know strengths and weaknesses and once we get more games under our belts, we will be fine."
