Going to be a very difficult game against QPR who seem rock solid at the back and aren't lacking in the goalscoring stakes either.
I wonder what style of football Warnock as got them playing. I am sure there midfield are going to make it very difficult for us to play and we have to watch Jamie Mackie who can't stop scoring.
