    QPR face much changed Wigan side

    QUEENS PARK RANGERS head north this weekend to face a Wigan side that has undergone much change during the last seven days.

    The Latics have signed three players this week whilst letting go of five - including top goalscorer Will Grigg.

    Paul Cook’s side has struggled in their return to the Championship this season but crucially still find themselves five points above the relegation zone in 20th place.

    But the Latics are enduring a really difficult period having won just one of their last ten league games and will be hoping their new recruits, which include former R’s forward Leon Clarke, can get firing straight away.

    The two clubs have previously only met 17 times with the R’s having a far superior record. Earlier on in the season, a Tomer Hemed scored the winner for the Hoops in what was Steve McClaren’s first league win.

    Trips to Wigan always bring back memories of the famous 2014 play-off semi-final - with that game ending in a 0-0 draw.

    QPR are boosted by the return of Ebere Eze following a knee ligament problem, whilst Massimo Luongo is available for selection for the first time since Boxing Day following international duty with Australia.

    Manager Quotes


    Steve McClaren: “We have a game against a strong Wigan team who a couple of months ago were well above us and playing very well. When we last played them at home I thought they were a very good team. I’ve watched them and they are still good but they just aren’t getting results. They’ve added Leon Clarke from Sheffield United and I think he will be a big asset for them, hopefully not tomorrow.”

    Paul Cook: "QPR have had an excellent season so far under Steve (McClaren), they play good football and have a nice style of play, they are well organised and carry a big threat going forward so it’s going to be a tough game for us tomorrow. Our home record is obviously strong, so picking up points at home is vital for us and hopefully, we can address the away form as we go along too.”

    To be honest it was two pretty poor teams and played at an end of season nothing to play for pace but was a cracking day out

    Scowen was actually our best player. Not often you can say that.

    BOS was another bright spark.

    Everyone else was dross though.

    We were rubbish tarbs and hardly created anything so dont read too much into any stats, was a very poor performance again.

    The big takeaway in this game: lack of urgency. We fell behind, then even further behind, and still we messed around with passes on the back line as the clock ticked down. The entire pace of the club needs to move into a higher, faster gear in games (as we saw a bit at the end) from start to finish.

    You are very wrong about Westy, as I've told you before, and I am very happy to be his mate thanks. Don't kid yourself I criticise you because he's my mate. He disagrees with me a lot but we're something known as 'grown ups' as opposed to 'wind ups'.

    Is a fair point. I certainly wouldn't have sent Chair out. Recall Manning but send out Chair? we need a creative option and that isn't Manning.

    Oh well, as long as we can win another 5 maybe 6 this season we should be safe, and that is all
    we should be aiming for, with that bloody embargo on us.
    We are punching well above our weight, (which is traditionally QPR btw) this already, so lt's just survive.
    Imo. We hit our high water mark when 8th, or whatever it was.
    Never gonna be realistic playoff contenders.
    Hopefully the summer brings a better financial position, and we know we have talented youngsters,
    hopefully they are one step further on, after their loans.

    Yes we are on a bad run but a good result on Tuesday could kick start our season again. We are in an acceptable position in the league right now after a bad run of injuries and wirh no hope of freshening the squad up in january. We are doing ok and I am quite satisfied with the season upto now
    Any freshening of the squad he had and sent out elsewhere lol
