QPR Preview - Home, Dec 7th

QPR Preview - Home, Dec 7th

Both Watford and Queens Park Ranger's suffered defeats at the weekend to North East clubs and will be looking to get back to winning ways at one another's expense on Monday.

We have the good people at Sky to thank for a Monday night game and just one day for the respective players to recover from Saturday.

The Hornet's were decent value despite coming unstuck at Newcastle whilst QPR were very uninspiring in their 5-1 thumping at home to Gordon Strachan's Middlesborough.

Hoops goalscorer Patrick Agyemang scored with his first touch of that game and his introduction alongside former Scummer, Rowan Vine was key to QPR's mild improvement. Magilton has great strength up top with loanee Jay Simpson in good form having arrived on loan from Arsenal. Simpson spent time on loan at West Brom last season and impressed their as the Baggies were relegated.

Another impressive North London loanee comes in the shape of winger Adel Taraabt. Lee Hodson and Lloyd Doyley are in for a torrid evening if the Moroccon international shows up at the Vic', four strikes in 14 league games testament to his danger.

Jim Magilton's men will be without defender Matthew Connolly and another loanee in Blackburn's Steven Reid. Gary Borrowdale should keep his place at left back ahead of former Arsenal young'un Connolly whilst Ben Watson and Alejandro Faurlin will compete with forme Orn Gavin Mahon for a midfield berth.

Watford are without Heidar Helguson on loan from the Loftus Road side, the Icelander ineligable to play against his parent club. Either Will Hoskins or Nathan Ellington likely to replace him.

Do hope you're wrong about the lineup and that waste of space Ellington isn't in the starting XI. Will be a tough night especially after watching Saracens churn up the pitch on Saurday evening, which will hardly suit us.

I tend to agree about NE, and my preference would be Will Hoskins but no manager has fancied him so he's been here and Liam Henderson is ahead of him on the bench which shows just how out of favour he is.

Great result and performance by the Golden Boys, LLoydinho superb and what a goal! Strong performances throughout the team (Cowie & Cleverley in particular) and thought Demerit also did well. However Ellington was a total disgrace, no energy, no skill, no desire, no clue and no use whatsoever. I would be happy if we never saw him in a Watford shirt again. Roll on Saturday and the return of Heidar. Come On you Golden Boys!

Good to see lloyd score and a sobering dedication from him, may not always agree about his defending capabilities, but can not fault his effort.

Yeah, agree with Wrexham, I've been able to make very few games this season with work committments, but I've been very impressed with the football and the way in which we flood forward on the counter with Graham, Cleverley, Cowie and Lansbury. And yes, Ellington is a complete and utter waste of space.
