QPR v Brentford – 19.45 GMT kickoff
This should be an interesting and close-knit affair with both teams in similar form. Both squads have injury issues with Joel Lynch and Darnell Furlong out for QPR. Grant Hall, James Perch and Nedum Onuoha are all out for Brentford.
Midfielder Lewis Macleod will possibly make his first appearance after 13 months out with a serious knee injury. He’s had reconstructive surgery and it will be interesting to see if he figures.
The changes for both sides will no doubt change any tactical plans the managers may have but overall, the strength of the sides should remain intact.
Both sides are at the wrong end of mid-table and will be keen to push themselves up the table. 3 points tonight will do the job nicely.
The home side don’t have the best of records against Brentford, having lost the last three head-to-heads. They lost both Championship matches last season and a League Cup tie earlier this campaign.
Brentford have a habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. A decent start will be essential, but they need to retain their composure in the second half so as not to throw it away.
Both sides would love nothing more than to give their manager and fans a boost of confidence tonight and both sides have solid claims for victory.
QPR v Brentford- summary
It is certainly a close one to call, but if Brentford can get a decent start- and retain it- they could be a goal or two too good tonight.
