Sky Bet Championship: QPR v Reading
Pre-season games have finished - warm weather training in Portugal is a dim and distant memory - now it's time to put everything together, shake it around a little and let's see what happens.
Saturday 5 August 2017 and Loftus Road welcomes Reading FC. You know, that lot who lost in last season's Championship play-off final.
Referee - Scott Duncan
Assistants - Akil Howson and Christopher Akers
Fourth official - Daniel Leach
If you're not going to the game or you haven't signed up to the QPR+ Season Pass (UK residents match commentary - overseas visitors get the watch the match live - BAH!) and you want to see what went on then you lucky lot can tune in to Channel 5 Sport new highlights show with that boring **** presenter, Colin Murray. Oh deep joy!
This clip will tell you more.
