West London Sport/David McIntyre - Diakite to join QPR squad on overseas trip

Mark Hughes will take his players for a break in the sun next week – and plans to use the trip to help Samba Diakite settle among his new team-mates.

QPR have a two-week gap in fixtures after Saturday’s game at Blackburn and manager Hughes wants them to recharge their batteries ahead of the London derby against Fulham on 25 February.

The trip has not yet been finalised, with Portugal a possible destination for the squad.

And midfielder Diakite, Rangers’ recent signing from Nancy, is expected to join them after playing in Mali’s final match at the Africa Cup of Nations this weekend.

“He’s got a third v fourth-placed play-off to play in and I’m hoping he’ll then come straight over to join us,” Hughes confirmed.

Hughes will hope his side fly out in buoyant mood after the vital game at Blackburn, where a victory against his former club would ease Rangers’ relegation worries.

Back-to-back home league defeats have left QPR struggling at the wrong end of the table, with the sending-off of Joey Barton against Norwich and Djibril Cisse against Wolves proving costly.

Hughes believes those dismissals cost the R’s six points, but insisted: “You can look back on spilt milk, but we can’t do anything about it.

“You’ve got to get on with it – the games you’ve got ahead of you. That’s what we’re focusing on. It’s important that we’re really positive.” West London Sport

EALING GAZETTE/JACOB MURTAGH - QPR boss wants more from Wright-Phillips

MARK Hughes reckons QPR fans will see the best of Shaun Wright-Phillips now the winger is playing in his preferred position.
The former Manchester City man has been a big disappointment since his multi-million pound switch to Loftus Road in August, while also failing to find the net in 22 appearances.
However, Sparky reckons he can bring the best out of the 30-year-old, who was an England regular during his time under the Welshman at City.
Wright-Phillips returned to his more natural position on the right flank in Saturday's defeat to Wolves, and will get another chance to impress at Blackburn tomorrow.
“I think Shaun's doing okay,” said Hughes. “In fairness I probably haven't been able to play him in his most preferred position, which is wide right.
“I've moved him around, I've played him in the middle and I've predominantly started him on the left. He's got enough ability to be able to adapt so I've been pleased with that.
“But obviously most players will tell you they would ideally play in their preferred position. We've got players coming back that will allow me to do that and Shaun will feel he can have more of an impact.”
One player who is keen to hook up with Wright-Phillips is pal and former City team-mate Nedum Onuoha.
With Luke Young ruled out with a hamstring injury, Onuoha could be used as a makeshift right-back at Ewood Park.
And he insists there's no reason why his mate can't rediscover the form that made him one of the hottest prospects in the country.
Onuoha added: “I've seen him when he was at his absolute peak at City where he scored 12 goals just before he went to Chelsea.
“The thing with Shaun is as a person is that he's very humble and hard working and there's nothing stopping him from being that player again. Ealing Gazette
