We all know about QPR's difficult run in. Hughes certainly does as he has admitted that QPR will be stretched to the limit to stay up. But most worrying of all is the fixtures that their relegation rivals have between now and the end of the season.
Take Wigan. They are bottom but have a great chance of picking up three points on Saturday when West Brom arrive minus Peter Odemwingie. The Latics also have a chance in home games against Stoke, Newcastle and Wolves, and away games against Blackburn and Fulham. Whose run in would you opt for, Wigan's or QPR's?
Then there's Blackburn. They are already above QPR in the table and have a chance of points in home games against Sunderland, Norwich and Wigan and in away games at Swansea, West Brom and Bolton. In fact, Liverpool could be out of the race for the top 4 by the time they travel to Blackburn, making that game winnable too. No contest as to who has the easier run in here!
Wolves, on the other hand, look up against it. They must beat Bolton at home and Wigan away, and hope that Everton arrive out of sorts. They will hope for something at Swansea and Norwich too. A tough run in, but easier than the Hoops.
Which takes us to Bolton. Again they have a head start over QPR and will look to secure points against Blackburn at home and Wolves away, and in home games against West Brom, Fulham and Swansea. That looks the easiest run in of the lot to me!
QPR's problem is the number of times the clubs at the bottom play each other - meaning one or the other or both have to collect points. The clever money would be on Bolton to survive, with one of Blackburn or Wigan joining them in the Prem next season. The recent results against Wolves, Blackburn and Bolton look to have relegated the Hoops - unless Cisse and Zamora can form a devastating partnership.
