Mark Hughes: Shows his frustration against Reading

QPR are still waiting for a first Premier League win of the season after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at home with fellow strugglers Reading on Sunday.

Though the pressure has been building on Hughes, he retains the support of QPR chairman Tony Fernandes and insists he is the right man for the job.

"Am I still the manager to turn things around here? Yes I am," said Hughes.

"We're not sticking our heads in the sand. We know exactly where we are and our intention is to get out of that.

"This was an opportunity to do that and we didn't take it. But we have one more point than we did before the game. We have to take that as a positive."

QPR only survived in the Premier League on the final day of last season, but Hughes is determined to avoid a prolonged relegation scrap this time around.

He added: "We anticipated before the season started that we would have a really successful campaign.

"The longer this run goes on then that successful season we all anticipated is in danger. And we could end up being in the situation we were in last year.

"Now we don't anticipate that will happen, but it is a possibility and we are all aware it could happen. We have done really well in our performances of late, but we just need a break as things have not gone for us."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
