Mark Hughes: Sitting bottom of the Premier League
Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes insists he remains confident that he has the full backing of the club despite their poor start to the new season.
The Hoops sit bottom of the Premier League after picking up just two points in their opening six games after suffering a 2-1 home defeat to West Ham on Monday night.
Pressure is now mounting on Hughes who brought in ten new players this summer at a cost of nearly £200million.
But Hughes is confident that he still has the backing of the club's hierarchy, asked if he will be given enough time he said: "I would think so.
"We have had a big investment and we're looking to improve this year and we will.
"It is very, very early days but until we get positive results on the board then obviously everything is up for debate and a focus begins to come on the club as a whole.
"We just need to start winning football matches. If we do that, it goes away."
The situation looks much brighter for West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, whose side moved up to seventh with the victory that came courtesy of Matt Jarvis and Ricardo Vaz Te goals.
"We've achieved our first Barclays Premier League away win, which is no mean feat for a newly-promoted team," Allardyce said.
"I think the outstanding qualities we showed both in our ability to take the game to the opposition away from home and our ability to score goals was fantastic to see.
"As the underdogs, having just been promoted, to come to QPR and take the game to them and dominate that first half was great for me to see."
