QPR Preview - Home, April 30

WATFORD HOST Queens Park Rangers in their final home game of the season, looking to deny the West London side promotion back to the Premier League.

The Hoops need just a point to guarantee promotion and the title so the Hornet's will be hard-pressed to deny Warnock's men.

'We were glad to get away with that in the end.

'They could have doubled or trebled that on the night, but at least it's not on television!'
