Mark Hughes set to haunt Manchester City next Sunday?
Queens Park Rangers need just a point from their final Premier League match to be certain of staying in the top flight, although it couldn’t be a tougher assignment considering they have to get that draw at Eastlands.

Only Sunderland have managed to deny Manchester City victory at the Etihad Stadium this term, with Roberto Mancini’s side having the added incentive of knowing that three points in this contest will mean the Premier League title.
However, Sir Alex Ferguson remains hopeful that Rangers can somehow get a positive result from the final match, while his Manchester United side need to win at Sunderland to stand any chance of winning the title.
“QPR need a point and they’re fighting for survival,” said Ferguson.
“The whole future of the club could be resting on the game and I only wish Sparky was playing.
“But Mark knows his job all right. He was sacked by City in a very unethical way and he’ll remember that.”
“There could be a Devon Loch. You never know,” said Ferguson.
“Stranger things have happened in this game of football.
“They’re red-hot favourites but we’ve won the title on three occasions on the last day and we don’t mind doing it again.”
Indeed, Ferguson will have been delighted to see QPR snatch a late winner against Stoke City which means they can play more defensively in their final game of the season.
