Under-fire Mark Hughes believes "wholesale changes" to the management structure at QPR would be a bad move but accepts the west Londoners are in danger of being relegated.

The Welshman is favourite with bookmakers to become the first Premier League manager sacked after the Hoops failed to win any of their opening 12 matches. That poor start was epitomised on Saturday as QPR slumped to a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Southampton.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has kept his counsel since, aside from a non-committal tweet in the immediate aftermath, and Hughes hopes to remain in charge. "Stability is absolutely what this club needs in the long-term," he said.
