Former QPR player and manager Iain Dowie believes Mark Hughes deserves more time at the helm to give the players he has brought into the club a chance to gel.
Hughes is widely believed to be fighting to hang onto his job after Saturday's 3-1 loss against Southampton left Rangers four points adrift at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League table and still looking for a first victory 12 games in.
Dowie told Sky Sports News: "Mark's a very experienced manager and he'll understand that when you don't get results you come under pressure. But with the sheer number of players that have come in, it takes time to gel."
