QPR chief executive Philip Beard hopes to have a new manager in place before this weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Newcastle but is remaining tight-lipped about prospective candidates.

The Rs have already begun their search to replace Neil Warnock, who was sacked on Sunday night following an indifferent start to the season in which the top-flight newcomers have picked up just five wins from their 20 matches and lie 17th in the standings.

Mark Hughes has emerged as the bookmakers' favourite to replace Warnock, but Beard refused to confirm or deny whether they had held talks, telling BBC Radio Five Live: "I can't confirm anything, what I can tell every QPR fan is that we're working extremely hard to bring in the right person to build some stability at the club and then build for the future."
