Tough run-in may be a blessing – Hughes

QPR manager Mark Hughes believes his team’s tough run-in to the season could be a blessing in disguise.

In the bottom three and having won only one league game since Hughes took over in January, Rangers face Liverpool on Wednesday night and desperately need three points.

Their climax to the campaign is a daunting one, with Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs also among their opponents.

But Hughes believes the tricky set of matches may work to Rangers’ advantage.

“The other teams have similar run-ins but ours is tough, we acknowledge that,” said Hughes.

“It’s good in one respect because it focuses the mind – we know every game is a huge game and we’ll have to play to our limits from now until the end of the season.

“We can’t take any short cuts. We have to play at the maximum of our abilities and try to drive the games.”
