QPR manager Mark Hughes has urged his players to improve defensively if they want to remain in the Premier League.
The West London club have already conceded 11 goals in 5 top flight outings this season plus three in last night's 3-2 Capital One Cup loss to Reading and Hughes is eyeing more assuredness in the back.
"We have conceded poor goals," he said.
"We need to be a little bit more understanding of what is required in those key areas of the field.
"Once we get that a lot of the other stuff of our play is very good, but obviously we need to tighten up defensively."
