Queens Park Rangers are deliberating over whether to stick by manager Mark Warburton or make a change after they suffered another frustrating result being held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Wycombe Wanderers.
Warburton’s side have endured a real dip in form over the last few weeks and the 1-1 draw against Wycombe on Saturday means they have now failed to secure a win in any of their last seven matches. Indeed, they have only managed to pick up all three points once in their last ten fixtures leaving them in 19th place in the table and four points clear of the relegation zone.
It was a challenging summer for QPR with the Rs having lost their most influential performer from last season in Eberechi Eze, but they did at least manage to keep hold of Bright Osayi-Samuel. However, they have managed to win just four of their opening 20 Championship matches which leaves them looking over their shoulders heading into the festive period.
Do you love QPR? Here’s 19 basic questions about the R’s that almost every fan of the club should be getting right
It has now emerged that QPR’s hierarchy are considering making a change in the magerial department with Warburton’s future now under real scrutiny. The Rs are considering over alternative potential names they could appoint were they to chose to part company with the former Brentford and Nottingham Forest boss, per West London Sport.
This has undoubtedly been a very challenging period for Warburton, and the Rs need results to improve very promptly if he is going to be able to remain on as manager. The QPR boss had shown signs of progress with the club last term and they were playing a bright attacking style that was attractive on the eye and something they were looking to build on.
However, despite a couple of encouraging early performances this season with the likes of Ilias Chair impressing at times, they have hit a real poor run of form and there looks little sign of things improving after their frustrating display against Wycombe on Saturday.
Making a change at this stage would be a risk for QPR and they would have to be sure that a new manager could come in and get them picking up results straight away. You get the impression Warburton desperately needs to secure a win very soon in order to survive this challenging period.
