Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett has emerged as a target for QPR as they consider Ian Holloway’s position at the club, according to the Sun.
The pressure is building on Holloway after another mediocre start to life in the Championship, and the R’s could turn to former Millwall gaffer Jackett as they seek to turn around the fortunes of the Loftus Road club before the season drifts away from them.
According to the report, there is a belief within Loftus Road that Holloway should have the club challenging at the top end of the table, despite stricter budgets being put in place since the he took over the club.
This weekend’s upcoming game could well be the crunch tie for Holloway and his QPR future, as the former Blackpool manager takes the R’s to bottom of the table Bolton Wanderers.
QPR have been in a bit of a rut since dropping back down from the Premier League and former manager Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink failed to turn the club’s fortunes around.
The R’s managed a 1-1 draw with low lying Sunderland yesterday, surrendering a first half lead to walk away from the North East with only a point instead of all three.
It seems a harsh sacking really if the club go ahead with it, but in Jackett they would be getting an experienced head into the club and someone who is used to working with smaller budgets and getting success.
Portsmouth won’t want to lose him, but the chance to step back into the Championship might be something which is too good a chance to pass up for Jackett.
