QPR boss Mark Hughes says his players have stepped up their performances in recent games.

Victories over Liverpool and Arsenal have given the Rs fresh hope over their survival bid.

Rs boss Hughes was proud of his side's performance against the Gunners and wants more of the same on Sunday.

"The three points was the main thing but the pleasing part from my point of view was the manner of the performance," the Welshman said.

"I think from start to finish it was a good, solid performance and we had a good understanding of what we had to do to go and get a result against them.

"The lads went out and performed to the letter so really, from my point of view, we have to keep on replicating that and the application that we showed.

"The determination to see the game through to its conclusion was there for everybody to see so if we show that in the games we have remaining we will pick up more points, which is obviously the order of the day."
