QPR chairman Tony Fernandes should wait until Christmas before deciding whether to sack Mark Hughes, according to the club's former striker Rodney Marsh.

The London club returned to the foot of the Barclays Premier League on Saturday after they suffered their seventh defeat of a so-far winless season at Stoke. Speculation continues to mount over the future of Rangers boss Hughes despite public statements of support from Fernandes, who is also the club owner.

Marsh, who played over 200 games for QPR, told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "I believe you should give the manager until Christmas. If you look at any successful team it is always based on continuity and consistency."
