Former Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince is set to take the QPR job.

The Mail on Sunday says Ince, sacked by Blackburn Rovers in December, is the top target for Rangers chairman and good friend Gianni Palladini as the pressure mounts on current boss Paulo Sousa.

Sousa's job is in jeopardy following a dismal run which, after yesterday's goalless draw with Sheffield United, has seen Rangers take four points out of a possible 21.

Sousa admitted to friends he fears he is about to lose his job less than four months after arriving at Loftus Road.
