QPR players are losing confidence in manager Mark Hughes.

The Daily Star says some players are no longer convinced Hughes is the right man to lead them to safety.

Hughes gave his squad the day off yesterday - despite around 100 fans staging a furious protest against them after Saturday's shock defeat to Southampton.

Angry Rangers players needed protection from security guards to leave the ground safely, and angry supporters flooded message boards, radio phone-ins and Twitter with calls for the manager to go.
