Gaffer pleased with a point at Carrow Road

R’S BOSS Mark Hughes was pleased to see his side kick-start their season with a point at Carrow Road.

Rangers trailed early on to Simeon Jackson’s goal, only for Bobby Zamora to level from close range following Djibril Cisse’s saved spot-kick.

Hughes told www.qpr.co.uk: “We’ll take the positives out of it because we were very poor last weekend.

“It was important that we showed up today and I thought we did that.

“It was a game of few chances in fairness, but in terms of our organisation and quality it was a vast improvement.

“They utilised the threat of Holt very well in the first half, but I thought we improved defensively in the second half and Anton marshalled him very well, to the extent that they had to make a change.

“All in all, we can be encouraged from what we took from the game.

“It’s only my second away point in charge here, so that’s got to be a positive as well.”

Hughes added: “it gives us something to build on.

“We know we can improve markedly on that performance in terms of our quality, but we’re a new team and we will improve.

“The longer we spend together as a group, the better we’ll become.”

Goalscorer Zamora received a deep gash to his head midway through the second half and Hughes added: “It’s a bad gash for Bobby.

“I thought he was excellent today and showed what we missed on the opening day.

“He’ll definitely miss Tuesday night against Walsall and we’ll have to wait and see for Manchester City.”
