Queens Park Rangers have been turning their season around in recent weeks, with things looking positive at Loftus Road after eight league fixtures.

Steve McClaren’s side have won three of their last four Championship fixtures, picking up 10 points from the 12 available.

Prior to that though, things weren’t looking good for McClaren at Loftus Road, with the R’s losing the opening four fixtures of the season and conceding 13 goals in the process.

At that point, the appointment of McClaren was looking a foolish move, with QPR looking like they had taken a major step backwards following a steady season under Ian Holloway during the 2017/18 campaign.

Holloway had arrived at QPR at a difficult time, with things not the best off the field and a fairly average squad in place at Loftus Road.

However, Holloway had QPR well away from the Championship’s relegation battle last season, with the popular manager leading his side to 16th.

QPR won 15 of their 46 fixtures across the season, drawing 11 and losing on 20 occasions. They were mid-table, but that was the maximum that was expected of the squad.

By the summer it had become apparent that the QPR hierarchy wanted to go in a different direction, with Holloway’s time at the club coming to an end in May.
