Southampton manager Nigel Adkins is confident both he and QPR counterpart Mark Hughes will remain in charge whatever the outcome of Saturday's match between their respective sides.
Saints head to Loftus Road this weekend with just one win to their name since their seven-year Premier League exile came to an end. QPR are the only side below them after an 11-match winless streak, something they hope to end.
It has been suggested the losing manager could be sacked but Adkins said: "I don't think it will have any relevance whatsoever for either manager. I'll be perfectly honest because that is what you're going to build it up as, because we've got two managers, two football clubs at the wrong end of the table."
