QPR will likely hand new signing Conor Washington his debut in today’s home match against Wolves, after signing in midweek as a replacement for departed striker Charlie Austin.

Rangers sit 15th in the Championship table having only one once in the last six matches but, with new signings coming in, manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will be hoping to improve his side’s fortunes in 2016.

Wolves come in to this game without new signing Michal Zyro, but will still hope to maintain their run which has seen them climb the table with four wins in their previous six games.

Both side still feel that they can mount a challenge at the top end of the table and will be looking to claim all three points in today’s gripping match at Loftus Road.

FootballLeagueWorld writer Anthony Yeo idenifies three things to look out for in this afternoon’s encounter…

1) Conor Washington

The striker signed from League One club Peterborough United on a three and half year deal, and will be thrown straight into Championship action against Wolves.

Washington has scored 15 goals so far this season and, with Austin departed for Premier League side Southampton, he will be there to provide the firepower for the Hoops.

Washington is very quick and versatile, as he can play out wide as well as up front, giving QPR an added dimension.

2) Wolves without Afobe

Although this is not the first match without the forward, it will still be interesting to see if they have to adapt the way they play their football.

It could mean that they start to spread the goals more evenly around the team as others step up to fill the void left by Afobe, after he signed for Bournemouth for £10 million.

Manager Kenny Jackett though has some targets to replace the forward, including Joe Mason from Cardiff City.

3) QPR home form

Queens Park Rangers have not won at home for the last four games and need to alter this soon if they are going to make a serious challenge in the Championship.

Rangers will have their work cut out as Wolves are on a decent run having won the last two away matches.

This could be the match that kick starts either sides’ play-off run. Only time will tell if they can make it.
