QPR manager Mark Hughes has reportedly been given two months to save his job at Loftus Road.
On Tuesday, the London Evening Standard said Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes had resolved to give Hughes a fair chance to turn things around.
Frustration and concern are building after QPR have taken only two points from their first seven Premier League games.
But given the difficulty of some of QPR's fixtures soon after the international break, Fernandes is understood to be willing to wait until the build-up to Christmas, when QPR have a series of theoretically winnable games against Reading, Southampton, Aston Villa, Wigan and Fulham.
Speaking on Tuesday, Hughes stressed: "We have to make sure that nobody is in any doubt about what is required from them.
"We are not happy with the situation we find ourselves in, because we believe we are a better side than that."
