QPR have sacked manager Mark Hughes with the club bottom of the Premier League.
"The circumstances we find ourselves in have left the board of directors with very little choice but to make a change," read a club statement.
"The board will now be working actively to put a new managerial structure in place as soon as possible."
Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge for the match away to Manchester United on Saturday.
"This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the board of directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days," the statement added.
