LONDON (AFP) - Queens Park Rangers' Malaysian chairman Tony Fernandes conceded on Tuesday that his side's start to the Premier League season has been "nothing short of a disaster".

The London club are without a win in 16 matches and Saturday's 2-2 draw at Wigan Athletic saw them set a new record for the longest run of winless games at the beginning of a Premier League campaign.

Harry Redknapp's side host London rivals Fulham on Saturday and Fernandes has urged supporters to keep the faith ahead of the busy Christmas period.

"Holiday today in malaysia. Went early xmas shopping. But all I want is 3 points. Hehehehe," he said.
