Nedum Onuoha admits Queens Park Rangers face the hardest run-in of the Premier League's relegation-threatened teams, but is confident Mark Hughes' side can avoid the drop.

The 16th-placed Rangers have taken just 22 points from their 27 games so far this season and are just two points from the foot of the table, with only goal difference keeping them above Blackburn and Wolves.

One win in 15 matches does not bode well for their survival prospects, while upcoming trips to Manchester United, Chelsea and a season finale at Manchester City are unlikely to yield any great gains.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham have yet to visit Loftus Road, but Onuoha is confident that the side can do enough to earn another term in the top flight, starting with a huge showdown with Bolton at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday.

"Of course [it's the hardest run-in]," Onuoha told the club's official website. "But teams playing us between now and the end of the season know that we have to go into games trying to get three points.

"It's going to be just as tough for them. It doesn't matter who you play against because teams will be favourites. But at the end of the day it's football - and anything can happen."
