QPR manager Mark Hughes hopes to ruin Manchester City's coronation and secure his own team's Barclays Premier League survival next weekend by becoming the first team to win at the Etihad Stadium this season.

QPR moved two points clear of the relegation zone on Sunday with a dramatic 1-0 win over Stoke that came courtesy of Djibril Cisse's 89th minute strike. Although they remain ahead of 18th place Bolton, the Trotters still could leapfrog Rangers in the season finale next weekend if they beat Stoke and the Londoners lose.

Hughes, who managed City between 2008 and 2009, said: "We haven't covered ourselves in glory this year on the road, but what better time to turn it around?"
