Defeat an eye-opener for Hughes


QPR manager Mark Hughes admitted his team's dismal first-half display in Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Blackburn had been a real eye-opener for him.

The Rs went in at the break at Ewood Park 3-0 down and although a second-half brace from substitute Jamie Mackie gave them hope, it was ultimately too little too late.

The result left the London club above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone on goal difference alone and former Rovers boss Hughes - appointed as successor to the sacked Neil Warnock at Loftus Road last month - said: "I think it is still a case of getting to know what I have to work with."
