QPR boss Harry Redknapp comes face to face with chairman Tony Fernandes (pic) for the first time next week.
The two have spoken on the phone, but this is first time the new manager gets to meet the man principally responsible for him being at Loftus Road.
Pretty much near top of the agenda will be whether Rangers should shell out more millions for reinforcements in the January transfer window.
“I have not met the chairman since I took over. It will be nice to say hello. He has been busy with stuff. When he does come in next week, him and the rest of the board will get together.
“We will sit down and have a chat, and I’m positive we will be in a position where we can strengthen the team and give it a real go.
“I’m positive that we can start picking up some wins, starting tomorrow. We have to go to Wigan believing we can get that first win of the season and that first away win for over a year. If we can win our season could take off.
Rangers will be joint holders of a Premier League record they would rather forgo if they fail to beat Wigan at the DW Stadium tomorrow.
Only Swindon went 15 games without a win in a lamentable season 1993-94 when the Robins finished rock-bottom with only five victories by the end.
Redknapp added: “I didn’t know it was a record – it’s just a bad stat and one we want to avoid.”
