Hughes pleased with 'important' point for QPR

The R's drew 1-1 away at Carrow Road thanks to a Bobby Zamora goal, and their manager was satisfied they were able to bounce back from their 5-0 opening day defeat to Swansea City

QPR manager Mark Hughes recognised the significance of his side's first point of the season as they drew 1-1 with Norwich City.

After their opening day 5-0 defeat at home to Swansea, it looked like another long day for the R’s when Simeon Jackson opened the scoring for the home side after 11 minutes.

However, Bobby Zamora knocked in the rebound after John Ruddy saved Djibril Cisse's penalty, and Hughes was pleased his players were able to hang on for a draw.

"It was important from our point of view. We had a poor display on the opening day of the season which we were disappointed with, so it was important to take something out of this game," he told Sky Sports.

"I'm pleased enough with the draw. It was a game of very few chances but I thought we defended well. We were always dangerous on the break without ever picking the right pass at the right time.

"We were always a threat, but in terms of what we needed to take out of this, it was a positive performance to get off the mark and get points on the board."

QPR have been one of the busier Premier League sides in the transfer market this summer, bringing in seven new players, and Hughes revealed there could yet be more additions.

Real Madrid and Tottenham centre-backs Ricardo Carvalho and Michael Dawson and Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar have been linked to moves to Loftus Road.

"In terms of personnel that we are able to bring to the club, we will have to wait and see," he explained.

"We have done really well and if we can't get any more in that we think could help us, then so be it. In terms of what we have been able to bring to the club, I'm very happy."
