Hughes predicts QPR’s scoring ability will save them from relegation

New QPR boss Mark Hughes has seen enough to suggest they have enough firepower to beat the drop this season.

The former Welsh coach replaced Neil Warnock at the Loftus Road helm exactly a month ago and swiftly went about bringing in new faces such as Nedum Onuoha, Djibril Cisse and Bobby Zamora.

"I am still getting a real understanding of what I have to work with," he said.

"It's not been easy because coming in January is a bit different to my previous job, where I was there from the start of the season.

"I had longer to assess the squad and what happened at Fulham last year was we struggled with attacking players.

"Bobby Zamora was out for a long period, Mousa Dembele was unavailable and Andrew Johnson as well, so that had an effect on us.

"We had to wait for those guys back in the New Year and they made a big difference.

"I think in terms of what we can deduce in an attacking sense, I think we are definitely on par that.

"That's why I am confident that we can create chances and now we have guys than can convert them as well."
