R’s head north to take on Bolton

AFTER a short break QPR are back in league action on Saturday, as the R’s take on the Trotters at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Steve McClaren’s side had a positive week before the international break and have now had 14 days at Harlington to prepare for a tough match against 8th place Bolton Wanderers.

The Whites have enjoyed a fine start to the season, beating West Brom and Reading whilst drawing with Bristol City and Preston. Wanderers may be having issues off the pitch but on it, they are performing very well.

Parkinson has put together a team of hard-working and honest players that have played in a more attacking manner this season, and have certainly enjoyed success adopting a somewhat ‘no fear’ brand of football.

The summer signings of Josh Magennis, Luke Murphy and Yanic Wildschut have increased the quality and depth of a Bolton side that narrowly avoided the drop last campaign.

In this fixture last season the R’s came from behind to claim a deserved 1-1 draw with Idrissa Sylla netting a late equaliser.

Rangers have not lost to Bolton in any of the last six meetings between the two clubs – a run Steve McClaren will be hoping continues come 5:00 pm Saturday.

Manager Quotes

Steve McClaren“They’ve had a great start to the season. The job Phil Parkinson did last season and the achievement of keeping them up, especially after their start, was fantastic. They’ve built on that this season and are now starting to go forward. It’s a busy period, we’re taking one game at a time, we go to Bolton fully prepared to win the game."

Phil Parkinson: “We know full well there are no guaranteed wins in this division. We want to continue our own run but we’ll have to earn everything against QPR. They haven’t had the best start but they have some dangerous players.”
