A place in round five of the Emirates FA Cup will be up for grabs when QPR host Sheffield Wednesday at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Friday night (8pm kick-off).
Rangers have been in great form at home of late, winning all of their last three games, and another victory would continue the momentum that they have been building since the New Year.
In Wednesday, they will face a team who will be desperate to right a wrong from the weekend. They were thrashed 5-0 by Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, albeit having played most of the match with 10 men, and they’ll want to bounce back.
A double from Jordan Hugill earned QPR all three points at Hillsborough early in the Championship season. A repeat result in W12 would see the R’s reach round five of the FA Cup for a second successive year.

QPR Manager Mark Warburton: "We’ll be putting out a strong team to try and win the game and I hope our fans can come out. I think Friday night is a great night for football. You finish work, the working week, and then you get to watch your team under the lights. It’s fantastic."
Sheffield Wednesday Manager Garry Monk: "It’s not just a cup game, it’s a game we want to win and we need to win. That’s the mentality I’m talking about, we are going into a game and we need to win."
QPR 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday – 4th August 2013
After recently being relegated from the Premier League, Harry Redknapp’s QPR wanted to kick off their Championship campaign in the perfect way.
However, debutant Atdhe Nuhiu gave the visitors a shock lead, reminding everyone around W12 that a tough season back in England’s second tier was in store.
Nedum Onouha scored his first goal for the R’s, when he slotted home Junior Hoilett’s low cross to equalise for Redknapp’s side and three minutes later Rangers were ahead when Andy Johnson converted Joey Barton’s headed effort.
Despite debutant Charlie Austin having a chance to double the R’s lead, the score-line remained the same and Rangers sealed their first win back in the Championship.
QPR Starting XI: Green, Simpson, Onouha, Hill, Traore, Hoilett, Henry, Barton, Faurlin, Johnson, Zamora.
