QPR chief Philip Beard admits they do not expect a relegation battle this season.

Manager Mark Hughes bought enough players to field an entire new team before the market shut last week.

Beard told London 24: "We haven't made the investment of this summer to simply compete at the same level as last season.

"The investment has been made so that we feel we are a club which can compete against - and beat - every club we play.

"We all believe that the squad we have now should be able to get stability in the Premier League - not fighting for survival."
