Surely Bowyer's objective is to move Birmingham to the higher end of the table...a quick glance at their league finishes and they've finished 19th, 19th, 17th and then 20th in the last four seasons. They have certainly started this year heading in the right direction, and now sit 12th with 12 points. Their top scorer is Scott Hogan with 3 goals...but they have other dangerous options in attack, in Lukas Jutkiewicz and their summer signing, Troy Deeney (who is apparently a Birmingham City fan.) As for us, I know we have injury problems, and the squad seems knackered already (only 9 games in ) but Friday night was a frustrating game to watch. Seemed the tactics were off, and from watching part of the game and following comments on here, there was a lot of frustration and disappointment when they went and got the winner. We may be on the verge of winning the league cup (or am I getting carried away there?) but we can't let that distract us from the league, or by the time of the league cup final on February 27th 2022, our league campaign could be all but over. Team News: QPR: Lee Wallace, Sam Field, Sam McCallum and Charlie Owens will all miss out for the R’s, Birmingham City: Gary Gardner, Ryan Woods and Marc Roberts could all miss out. Pre-match talk: Mark Warburton (QPR Manager): “We know what we face, we must be impose ourselves and meet the challenge. All weeks are big, but we have two home games in front of our supporters, the away support on Friday and throughout the season has been magnificent, but you don’t want QPR fans to loose belief and lose sight of the fact that we are working hard, playing well and need that backing, when we have a dip in results we need the fans to be behind us. Lee Bowyer (Birmingham Manager): “QPR have got good players all over the park, they are a good side, they move the ball well and have very good players in the attacking third. It will be a tough game, at an old school ground, but we have been doing well away from home.” ...COME ON YOU SUPER HOOPSA!!!
