Queens Park Rangers are eyeing up a move for Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth should they choose to part company with Mark Warburton according to TeamTalk.

Ainsworth is currently enjoying a hugely successful spell with Wanderers and has guided them to the top of League One and are five points clear of the chasing pack. They have lost just one game all season and are flying high at the summit.

Due to his impressive managerial record, Ainsworth has been linked with a number of jobs including the posts at Lincoln City and Sunderland but has rebuffed them.

However, Ainsworth has previously enjoyed a spell of his playing career with the London side and scored 36 goals in 141 league appearances for QPR in a seven year stay at Loftus Road.

Warburton has been with QPR since the start of the season and they had a bright start but they have now lost four of their last five games and there is speculation that they could be set to make a change in the hotseat.

Ainsworth is the longest serving manager in the English Football League and is winning a whole host of admirers due to the success he is achieving with Wycombe.

QPR were linked with Ainsworth in the summer before they opted for Warburton and should they decide to pursue him in the near future, he may find it difficult to turn due to his previous connections with the club.

Not only has Ainsworth done a good job he has managed to do so on one of the smaller budgets in the division.
