Hughes adamant new-look QPR will deliver

QPR returned to Loftus Road for a training session this morning with manager Mark Hughes insisting his new-look side will prove their worth.

Hopes were high at the club following another batch of signings, only for Saturday’s eagerly awaited Premier League opener at home to Swansea to end in a humiliating 5-0 defeat.

The result left Hughes stunned, but the Welshman remains adamant that Rangers are a much stronger outfit than last season and will avoid a relegation battle this time around.

He said: “No-one at this club expects us to be struggling this year. If we get our fundamentals right then we’ll be fine, because talent-wise we’ve got a lot of ability – more ability than we had last year.

“We’ve got to bring everyone together and make sure they all understand their responsibilities and what’s required of them. There are a number of things we need to do better.

“It’s about making sure that as a group – and we’re a stronger group than last year – we bounce back quickly.”
