Just over 10,000 people managed to fight the freezing cold January evening to see Queens Park Rangers narrowly edge out the MK Dons in the third round replay of the FA Cup due to a strong header from Danny Gabbidon which found its way past Dons keeper David Martin. With the goal also being the centre backs first goal in almost seven years since he scored for Cardiff against Crewe on 7th March 2005. Despite Mark Hughes taking the reins at Loftus Road since succeeding Neil Warnock on 10th January, he has inherited not only a team that lies third from bottom in the Premier League, but he has also inherited a team that had only won once in front of the home support as well as having not won in any competition since the 2-3 away win against Stoke on 19th November 2011. In the meanwhile QPR have slipped into the relegation places just bellow Blackburn on an inferior goal difference by only managing to take 2 points from a possible 27, also conceding fifteen goals and only managing to the find the back of the net on seven occasions. Many would have to argue that QPR only managed to edge past the League One team by the skin of their teeth being often caught out not only possession wise but also with the amount of chances. Charlie Macdonald was unfortunate not to do better when he ran in between Anton Ferdinand and Danny Gabbidon to only see his shot on goal slice past the far post. In the second half Jabo Ibhere also had a good chance from six yards whilst Macdonald was once again unlikely to see his chance missed from Stephen Gleeson’s shot on the hour mark. Meanwhile QPR failed to break down the oppositions strong defence with Jay Boothroyd seeing his shot go wide whilst Akos Buzsacky saw his superb free kick saved by Martin on 70 minutes. Rangers seemed to boost a rather shaky defence with a lack of creativity also missing in Midfield with Mark Hughes aiming to bring in fresh blood to ensure QPR’s Premier League survival. QPR have been linked heavily with Chelsea defender Alex as well as Man City’s Nedum Onuoha, Blackburn’s Chris Samba, and a potential £5 million move for Sao Paulo’s Brazilian playmaker Henrique. Although Hughes will be under pressure to bring in these potential signings before the difficult games starting in a mouth-watering at home in the FA Cup against Chelsea, and at home to Wigan as well as being away to the likes of Aston Villa and Everton. Hughes will also be hoping to end QPR’s run of bad fortunes by creating his own legacy at the club which he sees being a large project in his stay at the West London club.
