Millers next up at Loftus Road
QPR welcome Rotherham United to W12 this evening as Steve McClaren’s side aim to secure only their second Championship win of 2019.
Rangers picked up a point last time out at Loftus Road on Saturday against Stoke City.
And McClaren will be aiming to go one better against a Rotherham side one point from safety in the Championship drop zone.
After returning to the second tier at the start of this season, Rotherham have again found the step-up tough once more following their previous stint.
However, Paul Warne’s side have made a better fist of it on this occasion but are still winless away from home in the League this season.
When the two sides met at The New York Stadium in November Luke Freeman’s stoppage-time header rescued a 2-2 draw for Rangers.
Head to Head
QPR wins 7
Rotherham wins 5
QPR 4-2 ROTHERHAM – August 2015
At a sun-kissed HQ QPR cruised to a comfortable victory against Rotherham. Two goals from Tjaronn Chery put the R’s on their way before Charlie Austin added a third. Rotherham did pull back two goals to make it 3-2 but Austin added a fourth from the penalty spot in stoppage time to cap a fine victory.
Man in the Middle
David Webb – He has handed out 73 yellow cards this season, showing two red cards in the process. Of the 27 games he has overseen this campaign, tonight will be his second QPR match at Loftus Road this season having previously taken charge of the R’s 1-1 draw with Derby County in October.
Steve McClaren: “I always say to the players that the upcoming game is the most important, and that’s the case tonight. We are going to have to be focused and at our best this evening. Rotherham are a very stubborn side so what will be important from us is patience – patience on the pitch, patience in the dugout and patience in the stands."
Paul Warne: “If you look at all their last games, they score a lot of goals and they’re a real threat up front. They're perhaps in a run of results that nobody wants. All their games are really really tight. The standard is so high and they'll definitely see this game against us to get them winning a game, so will their fans, so it's up to us to go and break their hearts.”
