QPR welcome Reading to Loftus Road on Sunday with Hughes still looking to register his first Barclays Premier League win of the season.

Hughes' men were handed a difficult start to the season and have taken on Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea in their opening nine games, but now they face a winnable run of matches against Reading, Stoke and Southampton.

"We have in recent weeks played against teams in the top half of the table and we have acquitted ourselves well without getting the points we felt we deserved," Hughes said.

"Now we are up against teams that are in and around us so they take on more significance because we need to get maximum points.

"We know we've got opportunities in the games we have coming up to get more points on the board and that's our intention.

He added: "Nobody needs to feel sorry for me. This is football. It's fine. You can do everything correctly and sometimes you can get a curve ball and the roof starts falling in.

"There is nothing you can do about it."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
