Hughes: We just need time to gel

QPR boss Mark Hughes believes player turnover and a host of injuries have prevented his side from showing their true colours this season.

• Hughes backs Park
• We need more time

Hughes continues to hold support from Rangers' chairman Tony Fernandes despite the club currently sitting bottom of the Premier League.

Fernandes bank-rolled several big-name signings over the summer and despite thus far yielding poor results, Hughes feels that given time to gel they will be successful.

"Everyone understands what we are trying to do here. Tony and Amit (Bhatia, vice-chairman) and all the shareholders have been really positive in that regard. They knew and we discussed that there was a possibility the start of the season could be a little bit difficult because we had so many players coming in."

Injuries have also played their part in the clubs rocky start to the season with Hughes unable to name a settled back four all season and the former Manchester City boss says that once the squad is settled the desired results will come.

"We have also been hurt with the number of injuries which hasn't helped matters but I think we are all comfortable that at some point in the very near future, once everything settles down, once we get a settled side then the quality we have will let us win Premier League games. We are very positive that once we get points on the board that will continue until the end of the season.

"I've got great support and I think it is a consequence of the work we have done in such a short space of time. We have taken the club a long way - not only off the field but I feel in terms of the personnel we have been able to attract to the club," said Hughes.

Only Fabio and Andy Johnson will be missing from Sunday's clash with Everton at Loftus Road, and Hughes is looking forward to working with a fully-fit squad.

"There are still players who are able to train at the minute but haven't had game time so there is still the discrepancy in terms of everyone's level (of fitness). It is not all on the same line unfortunately but that will get to a point in the future when everyone has the same level of fitness and has had enough game time and is into the flow of the Premier League season."

Rumours persist that Hughes' position in under threat due to the poor start to the season but the much travelled manager points to the reign of Sunday's opponent David Moyes as the model all clubs should follow.

"Longevity is vital to a club and certainly one in our position who are only in their second season after coming up from the Championship. You need that continuity and longevity of players and management to enable you to grow as a group and chopping and changing personnel is difficult."

Hughes has backed his own managerial ability amid rumours the likes of Harry Redknapp is waiting in the wings to replace him.

After keeping QPR afloat last season Hughes believes his time at Loftus Road so far ranks amongst the best in his career.

"The job we did from January until the end of last season was a huge job. Whatever success I have in the future and whatever success I have had in the past, the job that we did from Jan until the end of the season was huge and was right up there in what I was able to achieve. I don't think that will change anytime soon, I think it was a massive job that we had to undertake and achieved, we are still very early in the process and we are still trying to move this club forward and we will do," Hughes said.
