Rangers go again

AFTER a two week break, Queens Park Rangers are back in league action on Saturday where they face a struggling Bolton Wanderers side.

In truth both teams have suffered forgettable results in 2019 but our visitors find themselves in a worse predicament.

The Trotters actually started the campaign on fire winning three of their first four Championship games but results have dramatically got worse throughout the last few months and Phil Parkinson’s side have lost seven of their last nine fixtures.

An ongoing row over the future of the club, which has seen several delays in the payment of player’s wages and protests from fans won’t have helped Wanderers on the pitch. But with Phil Parkinson’s side eight points adrift at the bottom of the table with only eight games remaining, they need to put that aside to give themselves a chance of staying in this division.

The R’s were victorious when the two sides played each other back in September thanks to goals from Eberechi Eze and Luke Freeman.

Steve McClaren will be hoping his side can end the season on a high. A campaign which started poorly but had many highs in the autumn month can still finish on a positive note.

Classic Encounter

QPR 4-3 Bolton – October 2015

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas curled in a 94th-minute winner against Bolton to end QPR's four game winless run. Gary Madine headed home the opener before adding a second but Emmanuel-Thomas immediately pulled one back, with Leroy Fer then stabbing in an equaliser. Tjaronn Chery put the R’s 3-2 up from the edge of the area but Wellington Silva levelled late on only for Emmanuel-Thomas to win it.

Man in the Middle

Geoff Eltringham – Has handed out 72 yellow cards, two red cards and seven penalties in the 22 Championship games that he has refereed this season. He was last in charge of the R’s 2-0 victory against Ipswich back in September where he awarded Steve McClaren’s side a penalty which Tomer Hemed converted.

Manager Quotes

Steve McClaren: “Despite their difficulties, Bolton have always fought, always battled, and I’m sure they’ll make it very, very difficult for us.”

Phil Parkinson: "As a team we have to make sure we put in creditable performances between now and the end of the season. We need to get our standards back where they need to be to put in Champ performances to give us a chance of getting points in games.”
