QPR boss Hughes happy to field Faurlin, Granero in Man City defeat

QPR boss Mark Hughes was pleased to boost his midfield in defeat at Manchester City.

Hughes handed a debut to Esteban Granero, who joined the club from Real Madrid this week, while Alejandro Faurlin, recently returned from a six-month lay-off, started.

Hughes said: "Faurlin had another 70 minutes on the road to his recovery and I thought Granero was excellent all day.

"I took him off as a precaution. He hasn't had a great deal of football but showed what a good player he is going to be for us."
