Under-fire manager Mark Hughes bemoaned the worst display of his QPR tenure but vowed to fight on after the 3-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton.

Rickie Lambert and Jason Puncheon goals but Southampton in control before Junior Hoilett clawed one back four minutes into the second half. However, Southampton ensured a 3-1 victory courtesy of a late Anton Ferdinand own goal, leaving the Rs without a win this season and their manager under increasing pressure.

Asked if it was the worst QPR performance of his time in charge, Hughes said, "Yes, without a shadow of a doubt. "Today there was not that intensity. We weren't on the front foot, we weren't anticipating anything, we weren't aggressive enough. All the fundamentals that you need to build a performance [were not there]."
