Pressure grows on under-fire Ramsey at QPR

HITC Sport understands Chris Ramsey's job as Queens Park Rangers is under mounting pressure.

Chris Ramsey's future as Queens Park Rangers manager is under serious threat with the club considering possible replacements for the under-fire boss, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ramsey's future at Loftus Road has been the subject of intense speculation for some time, following an indifferent start to the season.

Queens Park Rangers currently find themselves in 12th spot in the Championship table after a run of just two wins in their last nine games.

QPR have won just five of their opening 14 games and last Friday's defeat to local rivals Brentford has increased the pressure on Ramsey.

Ramsey signed a three-year deal at QPR in the summer after being task with the job of leading the club back into the Premier League following relegation last term.

QPR spent big in the transfer market during the summer transfer window, bringing in 13 new players and had set their sights set on a promotion push this season, but currently find themselves off the pace at the top of the table.

This could be a defining week for Ramsey as QPR travel to in-form Derby on Tuesday before taking on struggling Preston North End on Saturday and failure to win both of those games could cost Ramsey his job.
