R’s looking to sting bees

QPR will be looking to change an unfavourable stat when facing our neighbours Brentford this weekend.

The R’s are searching for their first victory in five games against the Bees with the last win coming just over two-and-a-half years ago.

Brentford have got the better of Rangers in recent fixtures but Steve McClaren’s side goes into this one two points and two places ahead of our west London rivals.

The visitors enjoyed a fine start to the campaign but had a difficult October in which they lost their manager Dean Smith to Aston Villa and picked up just two points from a possible 15. 

New manager Thomas Frank did manage to get his first victory when they defeated Millwall 2-0 last week and looks to be continuing the same possession-based style that his predecessor implemented.

QPR’s fine form came to an end at Blackburn last Saturday. The R’s were hoping to continue their unbeaten run but were denied due to a controversial late penalty from Bradley Dack.

That defeat has not dampened the spirit in the camp and there’s no better way to start another winning run than against your neighbours.

In this fixture, last year Rangers battled to somehow come away with a point. Our visitors were the superior side for most of the match and looked to be heading to a comfortable 2-0 victory, but injury-time goals from Luke Freeman and Matt Smith saw QPR steal a point.

Previous classic meeting

QPR 3-0 BRENTFORD – MARCH 2016

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink recorded his first back-to-back wins as QPR boss with a comfortable three points over Brentford.

Junior Hoilett opened the scoring by unleashing an unstoppable effort from the edge of the box.

The R’s doubled their lead when Tjaronn Chery's perfectly-weighted ball found Sebastian Polter, who slotted underneath David Button.

Chery secured the three points shortly after with a composed finish.

Man in the Middle

James Linington – Has given out 15 yellow cards, zero red cards and three penalties in five Championship games. His last match officiating the R’s was a 4-1 home victory against to Norwich last season.

Manager Quotes

Steve McClaren: "Brentford’s style of play is really inbred into them. They have a great identity and it is working for them. They stick to what they do and they do it well so this will be a tough game. We will have to be at our very best this weekend to get near to a good result. They play good football, they like to get forward and they are a good team. We expect Brentford to play their football and be attacking."

Thomas Frank: "They are very strong defensively and difficult to break down. We know that it is going to be a competitive game and we are looking forward to it."
