Hughes remains defiant in wake of poor QPR beginning

QPR boss Mark Hughes is confident the team can regain its form after producing an extremely poor start to the Premier League season. The R's sit at the bottom of the table with just three draws from nine outings and a goal difference of minus 11 but Hughes is remaining positive about the West London clubs road ahead.

The Welshman indicated that he is not losing sleep over QPR's current situation and is confident the work he puts in will soon pay off.

"I'm very lucky in that respect. It doesn't affect me in that way," Hughes told reporters. "My wife may question that on occasions when I'm snoring - but I have no problems."

He added: "I spend a lot of time at the training ground, and I try do all the work that needs to be done on a daily basis here.

"When I lock my office door, I can go home and clear my mind. It's always in the back of your mind, but I can keep it there until I go back in the next day.

"A lot of managers can't separate their personal life from their professional one - and that's something I understand. But I can, and that's something I'm grateful for."
