QPR chairman Tony Fernandes isn't ready to pull the trigger on Mark Hughes just yet.

The Daily Mail says Fernandes was upset at the manner of the loss to Southampton but is leaning towards giving Hughes more time, unless other directors can persuade him otherwise.

It is believed key shareholder Ruben Gnanalingam will be in the country before the match against Sir Alex Ferguson's side, while Hughes and Fernandes are expected to have talks this week.
