Mark Hughes may have been dumped as Manchester City boss in contentious circumstances over two years ago, but the now QPR manager does not see their meeting in the last game of the campaign as a revenge mission.

Mark Hughes may have been dumped as Manchester City boss in contentious circumstances over two years ago, but the now QPR manager does not see their meeting in the last game of the campaign as a revenge mission.

Relegation threatened QPR will go in search of a shock result at title-chasing Manchester City.

"I am not at all surprised it has come to this given the way the season has panned out from our point of view and many other clubs," the Welshman said.

"There have been so many ups and downs, twists and turns - it has been quite remarkable.

"Here we are now with so many issues on the last day of the season still to be resolved. It is going to be an exciting weekend.

"People keep throwing that word [revenge] up but it is not in my mind at all.

"From my point of view I am completely focused on what we have to do as you would expect.

"We have got a huge game and huge challenge. It is not going to be easy as Manchester City are an outstanding football team.

"The prize they are going for is obviously the ultimate prize and for us to deny them the opportunity to do that will be difficult.

"Everybody acknowledges that but the fact that this season has been so unpredictable means you can never say that a result is a given.

"That is certainly not how we're thinking and we intend to go there to get the points we need to be safe."
