QPR boss struggling to decide on his best team

Red cards and injuries have made continuity difficult, admits Hughes

Mark Hughes admits that the number of injuries and suspensions QPR have suffered in recent weeks have made it difficult for him to decide on his first-choice XI.

Hughes goes into tomorrow’s home clash with Everton with right-back Luke Young facing a late fitness test, while forwards Heidar Helguson and DJ Campbell remain sidelined through injury.

With new signings Djibril Cisse and Samba Diakite both suspended for recent red cards, Hughes concedes the number of changes has made it tough to settle on his best side.

“It has been difficult because we have lost people to suspensions and injuries, which you would expect, but we have to deal with it,” Hughes told London24.com.

“Certainly in the back four we have lacked some continuity, which is important. There is not a lot we could have done, but I’m hoping that in the coming weeks I’ll be able to get that continuity in terms of selection that will take us forward so we can get the points.”
