Match preview: QPR v Wednesday

22 October 2018

Wednesday head to Loftus Road on Tuesday evening in the Sky Bet Championship and here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game;

The Owls will be aiming for a swift response after falling to defeat against Middlesbrough on Friday.

Jos Luhukay’s side have lost just two games from their last ten outings and head to the capital searching for their third successive win on the road, after the 2-1 victories over Aston Villa and Bristol City.

Following a forgettable start to the season consisting of four straight league defeats, QPR have found their feet in 2018/19.

The R’s are unbeaten in three, with wins away at Reading (0-1) and Ipswich (0-2) and a draw on home soil with Derby (1-1).

Wednesday go into the league clash two points and five places above the Hoops in 11th spot and 19 points, while QPR sit 16th with 17 on the board.

Team news:

Owls: There are no fresh injury concerns from Wednesday’s clash with Middlesbrough on Friday.

Sam Winnall, though, has suffered a setback during the Under-23s’ victory over Hull on Saturday, picking up a hamstring injury.

Loanee Josh Onomah was an unused substitute during the clash with Boro after a busy spell on the international stage with the England Under-21s, but comes back into contention for a place in the starting XI at Loftus Road.

QPR: Jake Bidwell (shoulder) and Jordan Cousins (ankle) are injury doubts for the midweek clash with Wednesday.

The Rangers duo missed the 2-0 victory away at Ipswich on Saturday, though both are expected to make a quick return with their respective injuries not deemed serious.
