Mark Hughes has 'every confidence' that Queens Park Rangers will avoid relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.

QPR currently sit outside the drop zone on goal difference and have yet to hit a run of form since Hughes replaced Neil Warnock as manager in January.

Hughes has won just one of his six league games at the helm and has also presided over defeats by relegation rivals Wolves and Blackburn Rovers.

However, after strengthening his squad during last month's transfer window, the former Blackburn boss is upbeat about QPR's survival prospects.

He is aware of the precarious nature of his team's current position, but feels he has a squad capable of avoiding a swift return to the Championship.

"We're in a difficult situation in terms of where we are in the league and we have to turn that around," Hughes told Sky Sports News.

"I have every confidence, with the quality of players we have in the club now, that we can do that."
