Caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth believes that Loftus Road is a formidable home to QPR and could carry them over the line on Tuesday.

Rangers take on Birmingham City tomorrow night under the lights in W12, a side that they started the month against and were defeated at St Andrews.

Ainsworth picked up a valuable point against promotion favourites Reading this weekend, and is looking for more positive play as Rangers play hosts:

‘There’s nothing I’d like more than to see a packed Loftus Road for the visit of arguably one of the best teams in this division,’ Ainsworth told QPR.co.uk

‘I’ve said it more times than I’d care to remember, but there really is nothing like a packed Loftus Road under the floodlights.

‘The atmosphere the fans can generate at an evening kick-off at Loftus Road is immeasurable – it can arguably be the difference between success and failure.

‘If we can get a big gate and perform like we did against Reading on Saturday, there’s no reason why we can’t build on our recent unbeaten run.’


Ainsworth signed for the R`s back in the summer of 2003 and is still Rangers joint-longest serving player alongside Gareth Ainsworth.

A no-nonsense player, Ainsworth`s attitude and effort have made him a firm fans favourite, something that could stand him good stead for a permanent role in the Rangers hot-seat.

  • Loftus Road has to become a fortress. Birmingham City will be very well prepared and will really test the whole team. It’s time for all the teamwork to tell and the obvious egos to shinethrough too.

  • You could be speaking for both sides there! From Rangers perspective yes, there are a lot of characters and ego’s we just need them to play to their best, Parejo, Buzsaky, Ledesma etc.

  • this will be a really good game, (for a neutral )…….I would go for a 2 – 2 draw…… but watch out….Brum might just turn you over !!!

  • Now that’s a crucial win. Taking the newly-relegated Birmingham down with ten men. Keep on like that and you can believe in the big step-up. But you’ll have to do it without Daniel Sturridge — there’s no chance we’ll let him out on loan.
