We can decide our own fate - Hughes
Queens Park Rangers,
Mark Hughes believes QPR's Premier League fate is in their own hands and reckons he'd rather have points than games in hand.
Hughes' side are currently 17th in the table and two points clear of Bolton, who have played two games less. Even though wins in those games would see Bolton overhaul QPR Hughes is happy to be in the position of having already earned points and feels securing their top flight status is theirs to decide. Speaking ahead of Saturday's visit of Tottenham, Hughes said: "We feel it is up to us, we have difficult games but it is important that we maximise the opportunities that we have ahead of us. "We have four difficult games and we make no bones about it - it is not going to be easy but we are playing well, especially at home, and we feel we can pick up enough points. "At this stage of the season my preference would be to have points on the board so if we can get points at the weekend and put pressure on the teams in and around us that haven't accumulated as many points as us at this point - I think that more advisable and more comfortable then having games in hand."
