    Match Preview;
    After a very disappointing night on Tuesday against Rotherham, we now face a Boro side who are 1 place and 1 point above us. The only positive from Tuesday night was Dykes getting another goal, which took him to 10 for the season. Having a 20 goal a season striker is beyond us for some reason, so glad we at least have a striker who has got to double figures. Both Chair and Willock were left out on Tuesday, and I felt Chair was certainly missed. It'll be good to have him back, and hopefully slightly fresher than others, on Saturday.

    As for Boro, they lost 2-0 to Barnsley last weekend, and in fact, they haven't won any of their last four, last claiming all 3 points on the 16th of March, when they played Preston North End. Duncan Watmore is their main threat, but he only has 7 goals so far this year. Otherwise, as has been discussed in the thread below...it would be great to get one over Warnock.

    Team news
    QPR: Luke Amos Charlie Owens and Tom Carroll are side lined with long-term knee injuries, whilst Geoff Cameron is a doubt, Charlie Austin misses out through suspension.

    Middlesbrough: Marcus Browne, Anfernee Dijksteel, Sam Morsy and Dael Fry will be out.
    ...COME ON YOU SUPER HOOPSA!!!

    Bloody Luke Young.

    Meaningless end of season type game. But the odious Colin is their boss so I insist upon a punishing victory for the hoops.

    Cheers Dave.

    Oh Christ, not another one!

    Depending on which Rangers turn up of course. We've lost our last two away games 3-1, so hopefully some improvement for this game. URsss.

    Funny one isn't he. Loved him when he was with us, but looking at some of the things he's said over the years, totally understand why he isn't a popular figure in many parts. Still have such fond memories of our 2010/11 season under him.

    He got a lot of flak for “The Battle of Brammall Lane” but Santos’ mad karate kick was a thing of real beauty once you know the other bloke doesn’t die.

    If our current run is to continue, it looks like we can count on a win, thank you very much.
    2-1 in our favour and Warnock to have a spit because of our late winner.

    If anyone wants this weeks winning lotto numbers, there will be a fee involved!

    Looks like the dreams and excitement of a positive goal difference was just another dalliance with hope.

    Great preview as usual Dave.

    This phrase concerns me most, you just know what will happen: " in fact, they haven't won any of their last four, last claiming all 3 points on the 16th of March, when they played Preston North End".

    That said a good performance would be very welcome.

    Former AC Milan and Italian international midfielder Gennaro Gattuso gave his opinion on recent QPR performances ...

    So they don't clash with Prince Philip's funeral. They were only moved after he died and the funeral was arranged.

    Not a big deal really with no fans in. Wonder if they would have moved or cancelled the games altogether otherwise.
