QPR assistant boss Bowen: There is no dressing room divide after Hughes sacking

The Hoops’ caretaker manager has hit out at speculation claiming there is a rift between players at the Loftus Road club after their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United
QPR assistant manager Mark Bowen is adamant there is no divide within the Loftus Road dressing room after the sacking of Mark Hughes.

The Welshman had failed to find a Premier League win this season before being dismissed to make way for former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp.

Placed in charge of QPR as caretaker manager for their trip to Manchester United, Bowen provoked an improved performance out of a squad who had only managed to grab four points prior to their visit to Old Trafford.

"The lads worked well as a unit," Bowen told reporters. "The players are hurting at the moment – they're angry – but talk of dressing room unrest is completely wide of the mark.

"People have written and said a lot over the past few weeks but I can tell you there's a genuine belief that this club will stay up."

QPR will make a midweek trip on November 27 to take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

New boss Redknapp will be looking to overturn a Black Cats side that found themselves on the receiving end of a 4-2 defeat to visiting West Brom last time out.
