QPR manager Mark Hughes is confident his side can retain their Premier League status after Saturday's performance against Everton.
The west Londoners were unable to eke out a winner against the Toffees as they failed to make the most of home advantage once more.
Bobby Zamora's bundled effort saw QPR come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw, although the Hoops have now secured just two victories from 14 league matches at Loftus Road. Yet despite dropping two further points, the manner of the performance left Hughes believing they can stay up.
"I saw more qualities I expect from teams that I am in charge of," the Welshman said. "It has taken a little while but I saw things that I was encouraged by.
"I saw things that obviously really illustrated the message I have been trying to get over. They have to keep following what we are saying and understand what we're talking about.
"I have been in this league a long time and I understand what it takes to win Premier League games. I sensed against Everton there was a real understanding of what is required and that is what we will have to have from now until the end of the season."
