Swansea assistant Colin Pascoe says QPR’s stars need to start performing

Swansea assistant manager Colin Pascoe thinks that it is about time the big-money signings at QPR started to produce the goods for manager Mark Hughes.

Pascoe is a former team-mate of the Rangers chief and speaking ahead of Wednesday night’s clash between the two sides at Loftus Road, the former Wales international was keen to remind the west Londoners that the pressure is firmly on them.

“They need to win, they are at home and have to take the initiative,” he said.

“They are looking to us as a chance to get three points, they have some big teams left to play and they will want to get at us and press us. They will be psyching themselves up as they want to stay in the Premier League.

“They have some big characters, big players on big money and they need to produce.

“What they did in the Championship last year is gone. This is a different kettle of fish in the Premier League and those big players need to play for Mark Hughes.”
