McClaren’s Reign At Loftus Road Begins With Preston North End

Opening the season at Deepdale as we face Preston North End on Saturday, August 4, every fan will have their own standout picks when it comes to the more tasty games ahead for the club and the presumed more difficult or easier spells in the campaign, and as fans will know, we bring the year to a close against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, May 5 with a trip to Hillsborough.
