The result means Rangers and the Royals are still without a win this season and that has increased the pressure on Hughes, who is even money at Ladbrokes to be out by Christmas.
The firm offer 5/2 for QPR to collect their first maximum haul at Stoke, it’s 6/4 they come against Southampton, or 28/1 for QPR to grab an unlikely victory against Hughes’ former club Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Saints’ boss Nigel Adkins follows Hughes in Ladbrokes’ ‘sack rack’ betting at 7/4, Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is an 8/1 shot with Sunderland’s Martin O’Neill a 10/1 chance.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told Betrescue: “QPR spent big in the summer but it’s yet to pay dividends and seemingly Hughes is a dead man walking.”
