Stoke manager Tony Pulis has backed Mark Hughes to turn QPR’s fortunes around and avoid relegation.

The Potters are hovering above the bottom three themselves, but Pulis at least feels QPR and Hughes will avoid the drop this season.

“I don’t think anybody would have said at the start of the season QPR would be down there with the players Mark has brought in,” he added.

“But there is still a long way to go, a lot of games for them to pick up points.

“I’m saying now that I’ll be very surprised if they are down there come the end of the season.”

Pulis will be without winger Rory Delap, who faces a hernia operation next week, while striker Michael Owen is again sidelined with a hamstring problem.
