Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes insists that he can still lead his side to a mid-table position in the Premier League.

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes believes that his squad has the quality to finish in a mid-table position at the end of the Premier League season.

The Hoops are bottom of the Premier League and without a league victory this season, but Hughes has insisted that he can lead the club away from the relegation zone.

Hughes said: "Our hope was to finish in the top half and I still think that is a possibility.

"Obviously we need to start winning quickly and that is our intention at the weekend, but we feel we have the capacity, and we feel teams above us will have periods when they will struggle, like we have at the beginning.

"We feel now with injuries clearing that we are through our period and we hope to prove that at the weekend and kick on."

QPR face Southampton in a bottom-of-the-table clash on Saturday afternoon.
