Rotherham United

Loftus Road

15.00

QPR have won three of their last four against Rotherham in league competition but did lose this season`s reverse fixture 0-1.

Rotherham won their first ever league game at Loftus Road in November 1951 but have failed to win any of the last five (D2 L3), conceding 16 goals in the process.


QPR have won their last three league games at Loftus Road; they last won four in a row in December 2013 under Harry Redknapp (a run of five).

Rotherham have now lost their last six league games in a row and are winless in their last 11 (W0 D1 L10).

Rotherham have already lost more league games this season (28) than they ever have in a complete league season since 1925-26.

No side has won more points in the last six games in the Championship than QPR (13).

Luke Freeman completed 100% of his passes last time out against Leeds.

Vital Quotes:

Ian Holloway

'This is a very tough game.

'We will show Rotherham the utmost respect that they deserve.

'Having looked at what they do and how they do it, they're not as bad as their league position suggests.'

QPR Team News:

Kazenga Lua Lua (ankle) and Jack Robinson (hamstring) both miss out. Jordan Cousins is also sidelined (thigh).

Possible line up:

SMITHIES

FURLONG - ONUOHA - HALL - LYNCH - BIDWELL

FREEMAN - LUONGO - WSZOLEK

SMITH - WASHINGTON

Player to watch: Matt Smith

A savvy forward with the ability to score goals - particularly since his introduction to the set-up in recent weeks.

His link up play with Conor Washington has been a particular delight and could take advantage of some defensive shortcomings.

Rotherham United Team News:

Dexter Blackstock will travel with the squad to his old club after resuming training. Lewis Price is set to continue in goal, with Richard O'Donnell not yet ready to return, while Joe Mattock is banned after receiving a 10th yellow card..

Possible line up:

PRICE

VAULKS - AJAYI - BELAID - MATTOCK

FORDE - SMALLWOOD - ADEYEMI - FRECKLINGTON - TAYLOR

YATES


Player to watch: Danny Ward

Only one place to start with this one - Ward is Rotherham's top scorer and a very public QPR target in January.

He may well still become a QPR player at a later date and will no doubt look to add to a growing reputation.
