QPR boss Mark Hughes is ready to go with the old guard for their trip to Manchester United.

Hughes will remain in charge of Queens Park Rangers for Saturday's trip to Manchester United - but will ask predecessor Neil Warnock's players to bail him out of trouble.

Old sweats Shaun Derry, Jamie Mackie and Clint Hill - who were regulars under Warnock, but watched 12 new faces arrive in the summer - could return to the side at Old Trafford for a game that may decide under-fire Hughes' fate.
