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."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
