Queens Park Rangers have battled back from a troubled start to the season, easing the pressure upon the head of Steve McClaren.
The former England boss had seen the West London side lose their opening four games of the Championship campaign, a run that including a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of West Brom, but QPR have since bounced back.
Victories over Wigan and Bolton, either side of a goalless draw with Birmingham City, see QPR enter Wednesday evening’s clash with Millwall on the back of a three-match unbeaten run – and the improvements of McClaren’s side are shown in the results of our poll after we asked fans to predict the length of McClaren’s stint at Loftus Road.
41% of supporters believe that McClaren will see out the entirety of the 2018-19 season, compared to 34% of fans who expect their boss to depart before Christmas. A further 20% believe he has just a few weeks left in the role, while 5% are expecting a change imminently.
It is likely the results of the poll would have been extremely different if we had conducted it during QPR’s sequence of defeats but McClaren has clearly earned himself some breathing room.
