Hull travel to London this evening for their first match of 2016, looking to apply pressure on the top two teams with a win.
QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will be looking to get the under performing QPR squad moving up the Championship table in 2016, as they are currently in 15th and having only won once in their last six games.
Hull are third, four points behind second place Derby County who play tomorrow, Hull maybe third but have been slightly disappointing, so far this term and will be hoping that they can kick on and clinch a top two spot.
Hull are unbeaten in the last six meetings between these two sides, W2 D4.
Here are THREE things to look out for in the match between QPR v Hull….
1) Charlie Austin
QPR will be looking for a better second half of the season, and here is a player with all the right attributes to fire them up the table.
Charlie has scored 10 goals and will be hoping to add to his tally this evening against Hull City.
Austin has been linked with a number of top-flight clubs but has pledged to stay, music to R’s fans, but not to the defences of the Championship teams.
2) Hull’s away form
Hull have lost thire last three away games in the league, this has been their main Achilles heel this season as they under perform away from home.
So far they have W4 D3 and L5 on the road, this must change to achieve automatic promotion.
Hull have scored 12 goals and conceded 11 away from home.
3) Rob Green
Rob Green is still good enough to grace the Premier League, this evening though he faces a potent attack in Hull.
The likes of Hernadez, Akpom and Clucas will surely be a test for the former England International keeper.
QPR will need him to be on top form to keep Hull at bay, and go on to push for a much needed home win.
