Philip Beard: Says QPR are working hard to move off the foot of the Premier Leag

Manager Mark Hughes has come under huge pressure following a start to the season which has seen his side fall four points adrift at the foot of the Premier League table.

Hughes remains in control of the side following a disappointing loss to Southampton and took charge of training on Tuesday as the build-up to Saturday's trip to Manchester United begins.

Beard, who held a two-hour meeting with Hughes on Monday, was at the training ground again a day later but brushed off suggestions that his presence is part of any increased scrutiny on the manager.

"I spend a lot of time at the training ground, it's no different to usual," Beard told Sky Sports News.

"We're working hard, we want to turn this around and make sure we do what the fans want, which is to sort ourselves out and get the season back on track."

Club backer Din Kamarudin is also in town but Beard says his trip is not related to any decision about Hughes' future.

He added: "We've got shareholders and when they come to town they come to the training ground. Din's here for the game on Saturday and is looking forward to it, so preparations are going well.

"We are working really hard and we want to turn this season around. It's important we do it for the fans."
