Queens Park Rangers started their crucial run of fixtures with a gritty 0-0 draw at home to Reading, but then went on to lose 1-0 away to Stoke City last weekend, and then inexcusably 3-1 to fellow relegation strugglers Southampton on Saturday. It's a string of results that have left the Hoops four points adrift at the foot of the Premier League table, and five points from safety. If Mark Hughes wasn't feeling the pressure before the devastating loss to Southampton at the weekend, then he certainly will be now, and with other results going against his team, he finds himself as odds on favourite to be out of a job come Christmas.
Queens Park Rangers take their search for a first Premier League victory (the only side still awaiting a win) to Old Trafford next Saturday afternoon with Mark Hughes desperate to have something to celebrate in the Theatre of Dreams, like during his playing days with the Red Devils. The Hoops then travel across England to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light next Tuesday evening, with the Black Cats still struggling to get their own season up and running. A week on Saturday sees the arrival of Aston Villa to Loftus Road, a match that is nothing short of a must win for both sides, but surely anything short of the maximum three points for Queens Park Rangers will leave them needing a miracle to escape relegation into the Championship.
