QPR boss Mark Hughes is thrilled their Premier League hopes are still alive - even if they hang on a result at Manchester City.

Hughes admits had Djibril Cisse's strike against Stoke City - his fifth in six starts - not gone in, his team would have almost certainly been relegated.

"It was a huge result," he said.

"It was key for us that we got the three points, a draw wouldn't have been enough for us - it would have been too much.

"The fact we have one more game and have our fate in our own hands is something we are grateful for."
