QPR owner continues to back Hughes, despite winless streak


Tony Fernandes is not planning a change of manager at Queens Park Rangers.

The Londoners only survived relegation from the Premier League on the final day of last season, and boss Mark Hughes then promised supporters they would never see their side struggle again for as long as he is in charge.

However, ten games in and a number of new arrivals in the summer, and Rangers are again looking as though they will be battling the drop. The Hoops are yet to register their first win of the campaign, having drawn four matches and lost six.

A disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Reading has increased the pressure on Hughes, especially as Harry Redknapp, the former Tottenham Hotspur boss, remains on the market. However, Fernandes insists he retains full confidence in the Welshman.

"I have complete faith in Mark Hughes and we have a great squad, we just need to hold out for that stability and I'm sure things are going to go right," the QPR owner told Sky Sports. "It's been one of those frustrating seasons for us but I'm keeping the faith and keeping calm. It's not a time to panic."
