Mark Hughes emerged from a barrage of questions about his future on Friday to insist he is still the right man to turn things around at QPR.

Hughes' men will try to secure their first Barclays Premier League win of the season at the 12th attempt on Saturday when they welcome Southampton to Loftus Road. The game against Saints has been dubbed "El Sackio" given the current predicament of both managers.

Tony Fernandes claimed on Twitter last week that QPR "must win" the six-pointer against the south-coast club, who are one point above rock-bottom Rangers. But Hughes is adamant that he can drag the west Londoners away from the foot of the table. "My future doesn't hinge on this match," Hughes told a press conference.
