Team News: QPR
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the QPR manager Mark Warburton to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Sam Field (Knee Surgery) will miss out.
Team News: Blackburn Rovers
Out of a mainly healthy group, there is just the one fitness problem for the Blackburn Rovers gaffer Tony Mowbray to be concerned with. Bradley Dack (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be in action.
We feel that Blackburn Rovers might need a bit of good fortune to hit the back of the net against this Queens Park Rangers team who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 1-0 winning score for Queens Park Rangers when the full-time whistle blows.
Expecting it to be tight.
