QPR boss discusses selection criteria
QPR manager Mark Hughes insists that he is picking the right team, despite recent fan criticism.
The Welshman has been criticised for leaving out the likes of Adel Taarabt but he maintained that the Moroccan had not done enough in training to merit selection.
“It’s what I see day to day [that helps me pick the team],” Hughes said.
“If somebody else is playing better that will shape my view.
“Adel has come back and done really well. He hasn’t played [in the past] because he is at the right level.
“I have had to make changes in games. It hasn’t been easy. It’s about managing resources.”
Hughes believes that one reason for his side’s poor form has been the difficult start they have had, playing sides who have started well, or expected to do well.

“In the first 10 games we’ve played the top eight [at the time of writing] and teams that have started strongly,” he explained. We will soon play teams closer to us.
“Our home form kept us up last year. We need to get that momentum there again. We haven’t done that yet but once we do Loftus Road will be a very difficult place to come.”
