Brentford v Queens Park Rangers

Sky Bet Championship

Griffin Park

Kick-off: 3pm

 

THE OPPOSITION


Queens Park Rangers’ form this season makes for fascinating reading.

The Loftus Road outfit lost the first four, recovered to sit within a few points of the Play-Off places and then lost seven on the spin prior to a victory over promotion-chasing Leeds United.

Tuesday night’s victory was a welcome release for Rangers fans who hadn’t seen their team take all three points since Boxing Day.

 

TEAM NEWS

Luke Daniels (calf) and midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo are doubts.

Emiliano Marcondes (ankle) is back in light training but left-back Rico Henry (foot) and midfielder Lewis Macleod (hamstring) are out.

QPR boss Steve McClaren has no new injury concerns. Angel Rangel (thigh) is out but Geoff Cameron (ankle) is back in training.

 

THE BOSS

STEVE McCLAREN

Steve McClaren joined QPR having amassed a wealth of experience during 23 years of coaching.

McClaren, who was born in York, spent the bulk of his playing career at Hull City, for whom he made 178 appearances and scored 16 goals.

The former England boss previously worked for QPR as a First Team coach in 2013, setting the foundations in place for what proved to be a successful season for the club.

The R’s went on to achieve promotion to the Premier League via the Play-Offs, overcoming McClaren’s Derby County in the Final at Wembley.

 

LAST MEETING

Three goals in ten second-half minutes condemned Brentford to West London derby defeat against Queens Park Rangers.

The Bees had led at half-time thanks to a Neal Maupay goal and seemed to be in control of proceedings.

But they conceded three times between the 50th and 60th minutes and there was no way back. Henrik Dalsgaard pulled one back with ten minutes remaining but that triple salvo sealed the game.
