:

QUEENS Park Rangers return to FA Cup action this weekend, with an away tie with Peterborough United in the fourth round of the prestigious competition (KO 3pm).

Of course, the R’s wrapped up victory over Rotherham United in W12 only four weeks ago courtesy of a dramatic penalty shootout. Jordan Archer was the eventual hero as palmed away Chiedozie Ogbene’s decisive spot-kick, but this didn’t come without a consequence as the Rangers stopper suffered a freak injury in the process.

However, since booking their place in the next round the Super Hoops have gone from strength-to-strength with victories over West Bromwich Albion, Coventry City and Reading ensuring Warburton’s side remain undefeated since the turn of the calendar year.

In a twist of fate, Rangers’ last away defeat came at the Weston Homes Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship meeting between the two sides back in October.

Ilias Chair got the ball rolling for the R’s that day with an unusual but productive corner kick, but a strike from Harrison Burrows and a last-minute effort from Siriki Dembele condemned the Super Hoops to their fourth away defeat of the campaign.

This will certainly be fresh in Rangers’ minds as we take to the field this weekend. Darren Ferguson’s side - who have struggled somewhat throughout the season - will be looking to draw confidence from that disappointing afternoon for us.

COVID Protocols

Supporters are also reminded that as we look to limit the risk of COVID-19 transmission, QPR management and players are not able to sign autographs or pose for photos at this time. We look forward to when normality can return but ask all supporters to understand and respect the reasons behind this.

Streaming Details

QPR fans all over the world can tune into live audio commentary of Saturday's Emirates FA Cup tie with Peterborough United at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Latest regulations do not permit clubs to stream FA Cup fixtures live on their channels. So live audio commentary is therefore the best way for fans not in attendance to follow all of the third-round action via QPR+.

Regular QPR+ commentators Nick London and Andy Sinton will be providing the coverage and overseas R’s who have a live streaming subscription will be able to tune into the commentary. UK-based fans with a match commentary subscription can also tune in as normal.

Team News

QPR: Jordan Archer will miss out for the R’s, while Sam McCallum is edging closer to a return. Ilias Chair and new signing Jeff Hendrick are likely to be involved.

Peterborough: Callum Morton is cup-tied, Dan Butler, Jack Taylor and Harrison Burrows will miss out, but Ollie Norburn may return.

Pre-match Talk

Mark Warburton (QPR manager): “The players have to be excited by the FA Cup. It's the unknown, when the draw is made - you wait to see who you're drawn against.

"It's the oldest and most fantastic club cup competition in the world. It's a privilege to be involved in it and I've said to the squad that I hope we can deliver a good performance for the very large away support we have going to the game tomorrow."

Darren Ferguson (Peterborough manager): “QPR are a good side, we saw that in the game between the two sides earlier in the season, but we have beaten them before and that will give us confidence. It has been a challenging month, there is no getting away from that, but we have a break from the pressures of the league and we want to go as far as we can in this competition.

"It should be a good atmosphere, they have sold out their end and our sales are good, so hopefully it will be a really good occasion.”

Memorable Match

Peterborough United 0, QPR 2: January 1st 2003

QPR kicked off 2003 with three points courtesy of a fine victory over Peterborough United at London Road.

A late first half-header from Clarke Carlisle and an unusual effort from Richard Langley with 10 minutes of the second half remaining wrapped up a perfect afternoon for Ian Holloway’s side as they edged closer to the play-off spots.

The 2002/03 season would eventually end in disappointment for the R’s, with Rangers cruelly missing out on promotion courtesy of a heartbreaking play-off final defeat to Cardiff City in Cardiff.

QPR Starting XI: Culkin, Forbes, Carlisle, Shittu, Rose, Palmer, Bircham, Langley, Angell, Cook, Gallen. 

Ref Watch

David Webb will take charge of this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Peterborough United.

This will be Webb’s second Rangers clash of the campaign, with his last coming in our home victory over Blackburn Rovers back in October. He will be supported by assistant referees Adam Crysell and Paul Hodskinson and fourth official Benjamin Speedie.
