Stoke City boss Mark Hughes reveals that he is disappointed that his side failed to hold out for the victory in their clash with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has admitted that he was frustrated that his side failed to take all three points from their clash with Queens Park Rangers.

The Potters led twice in the match and looked to be holding out for the victory at Loftus Road, until Niko Kranjcar fired a free kick past Asmir Begovic to earn Harry Redknapp's side the draw.

Hughes told reporters: "There's a bit of frustration because, at the end, we haven't got maximum points which we deserved. Given that we feel our home form will improve markedly, we've got to be encouraged by [our away form].

"In terms of what we produced and chances in open play, we were the better team on the day but you need to manage the game and that's what we need to learn from."

Hughes's side are 13th in the Premier League after five matches this season.
