Real football returns this weekend and Queens Park Rangers are back in action with a trip to the Macron Stadium to Bolton Wanderers in the next Championship clash.
We go into the game on the back of a scoreless draw with Birmingham City ahead of the September international break, and by rights, we really should’ve come out of the 90 minutes with the win and all three points to show for our efforts and better domination of the game.
This weekend won’t be any easier as Bolton have won and drawn two of their last five, whereas we are unbeaten in two after successive defeats. But the Birmingham clash should’ve seen confidence lift and we have to make the most of it.
Rangel, Lynch, Leistner, Bidwell,
Freeman, Luongo, Scowen, Eze,
The only real change I can see manager Steve McClaren making for this one is switching out Jordan Cousins and Josh Scowen after he sat out the last match, but it’s just as likely McClaren won’t make changes at all in the hope of keeping that consistency going. The alternative would be giving Geoff Cameron his first start for his battling abilities.
Depending on what happens elsewhere a positive result could see us move out of the bottom three and that would be massive for confidence purposes given our slight improvements of late. Just have to hope the September break didn’t come at the wrong time for us and we can keep the momentum going and show further improvements along the way.
