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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
