MARK HUGHES believes QPR have finally shown the discipline and organisation he is looking for in their bid to beat the drop.
Although the Rs had to settle for a point, they were unlucky not to take all three – missing several good chances – and the QPR boss expressed satisfaction at what could be a turning point for his team.
“Today, I saw more qualities that I expect from teams that I'm in charge,” Hughes said.
“It's taken a little while, but I was encouraged by things that I saw. It really illustrated what I've been trying to get over.
“I've been in this league a long time and understand what it takes to win Premier League games. I sensed today that there was real understanding of what was required – and that's what we'll have to have from now until the end of the season.”
Hughes added: “We showed discipline and I was pleased with what we did today, albeit ideally, we would have preferred three points.
“I sensed today our luck was starting to change. We've got a threat in the team. We've got Djibril Cisse who will come back next week and I'd be more concerned if I thought we didn't have the ability to score goals in the Premier League.
“I know that we have that threat and we can get organised and make sure that we're difficult to beat and then we'll definitely have enough going forward in the games that we have left.”
