Djibril Cisse's goal just after the hour rescued Hughes's side who had gone behind to Kaspars Gorkss's opener.

"Credit to us second half we made a much better game of it, in terms of being brave in possession, getting on the ball and really driving the game to Reading," Hughes told Sky Sports.

"First-half we were too passive, certainly in the initial period we could not get out and get our foot on the ball and play the type of game we wanted to.

"But credit to Reading they have a certain way of playing, they peg you back, get the ball up into good areas and have front guys who work really hard and they retain possession high up in your own half.

"We are disappointed as it is a home game and we wanted to take maximum points and once again we haven't been able to do that."

QPR remain without a win, like Reading, and Hughes admits that they need to get a maximum haul as soon as possible.

"The sooner we get it the better, credit to Reading, they didn't allow us to play our expansive game and allow us to pass and move which is what we want to do," he said.

"I have said time and time again, we are in a situation that nobody anticipated and we are working exceptionally hard. The key is to get the first win tne we can settle down and play our football."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
