QPR chairman Tony Fernandes saw improvements in Mark Hughes' team for their draw with Reading.

Sunday's draw with Reading will have been seen by most as a missed opportunity for QPR to move within three points of Aston Villa in 17th place.

But Fernandes felt that after a shaky start Rangers were the better side, and reckons they are very close to collecting their maiden win.

He said: "At one stage, when we looked like we're going to lose at half-time, I thought we had played awfully. We didn't look as though we were competing and then in the second half we were quite a different team.

"I think our midfield were not used to the kind Reading play and they played us off the park initially, but we came back strongly and I thought we deserved the win. We're just missing that last minute bit."
