Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock looks ahead to this tonight’s clash against Plymouth Argyle – anticipating a different kind of test to the weekend.
Rangers were in fine form at the weekend as Warnock’s first game in charge ended in a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion.
Goals from Jay Simpson, Matt Connolly and Ákos Buzsáky saw off the Baggies in an excellent display, but now Warnock expects a different challenge from the Pilgrims.
He told QPR.co.uk that while the weekend performance was a good start, he expects Plymouth to be just as tough for different reasons.
‘Plymouth will be a totally different test for us,’ said Warnock.
‘Saturday was a great start for us, but it will be a completely different test against Plymouth.
‘They’re fighting for their lives, as are a lot of teams for one reason or another, so we’ll have to produce the goods again to get the result we want and need.’
Tactically the two sides will be vastly different according to the new R’s gaffer, with Albion open to attack while Plymouth due to be more tentative going forward.
‘They’ll come to keep it tight and hit us on the break, unlike West Brom who came here and were very open.
‘It’s all about adapting to certain games and I’m confident we’ll do that.
‘We’ll have to be prepared to do the hard, horrible stuff, but I’m sure we’ll get there.’
This evening will give Rangers the change to record their third home victory on the spin, heralding a revival in form at Loftus Road – a place Neil Warnock wants to become a fortress.
