QPR will hope to enjoy the perfect end to a productive week when they head to Barnsley in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The R’s have won their first two matches of December – beating Preston North End and Birmingham City – after what was a testing November.

They’ll be eyeing victory number three of the month at the weekend and if they achieve it  then they will be on the cusp of the play-off places once again.

In Barnsley, they will take on a side in desperate need of points for very different reasons. The Tykes have only won twice this season since winning promotion from League One and a victory for them would hand them some much-needed points in their fight against relegation.

QPR fans based outside of the UK & Ireland who are not attending the game can watch all of the action live online. CLICK HERE to purchase your QPR+ match pass.

QPR wins: 28

Pre-match words

QPR Manager Mark Warburton: “Barnsley are a young team, they have energy and they keep going until the final whistle. They have been unfortunate recently in their fixtures and a fairly misleading picture has been painted by Barnsley’s position in the league table. We have to recognise the threat they pose. They are at home and we come into it on the back of two good results. There can be no complacency.”

Barnsley manager Gerhard Struber: “Every game is important and every game we show that we create a good performance. It is clear we need points but, on Saturday, we will give all we have and I am very hopeful that the performance will be good.”

Historic meeting

QPR 5-2 Barnsley – 26th September 2009

Akos Buzsaky was the stand-out performer as a five-star display from QPR saw them beat Barnsley at Loftus Road in September 2009.

Rangers – who had yet to win at home in 2009/10 – were favourites to beat the relegation battlers and they took the lead through Mikele Leigertwood’s 25-yard opener.

Buzsaky then notched a double, with his second goal rippling the net from 30 yards out, as the R’s took a 3-0 lead into half-time.

Barnsley pulled two back in the first 11 minutes of the second period, through Stephen Foster and Andy Gray, but efforts from Ben Watson and Jay Simpson made the result safe for Jim Magilton’s QPR.

QPR starting XI: Cerny, Stewart, Gorkss, Borrowdale, Leigertwood, Routledge (Faurlin 69), Buzsaky, Rowlands, Watson, Vine (Taarabt 69), Simpson (Pellicori 80). Subs (not used): Heaton, Ramage, Mahon, Ephraim.

Man in the middle

He will be supported by assistant referees Nick Greenhalgh and Adrian Waters and fourth official Andrew Kitchen.
