Mark Hughes' QPR future does not hinge on Southampton match

Mark Hughes says his future as Queens Park Ranger manager does not hinge on his team's result against Southampton on Saturday.

Facing questions about the increasing speculation about his future at the London club, Hughes says he remains confident of an improvement in the team's fortunes soon, but acknowledges that they have had a "difficult start" to the season.

The former Wales manager says that the club has "moved in a massive direction forwards" since his arrival and that he had the support of the team's staff and ownership despite the "difficult situation".
