Queens Park Rangers will take a fully-fit squad to Nottingham Forest in the Championship tomorrow.
Mark Warburton lasted only 37 games in charge of Forest through 2017, losing his job on New Year’s Eve.
It was a tough spell in his otherwise successful managerial career, and tomorrow he’ll head there looking to prove himself and his new side, and to rectify a 4-0 home defeat to Forest earlier in the season.
A crazy final ten-minutes saw Forest put three past QPR back in November, but Warburton’s side go into this one in better shape after their impressive comeback win v Stoke City last weekend, and with no fresh injuries to report.
Yoann Barbet was the club’s long-term absentee this season. The Frenchman missed nearly four months of football but returned earlier this month, and has impressed upon doing so.
He looks set to keep his starting spot alongside Grant Hall in the QPR defence, and so too does Angel Rangel – the Spaniard has also returned from a spell on the sidelines recently, starting the last two and being equally as impressive on that right hand-side.
Can you get 15 out of 15 on this QPR quiz? Have a go now!
QPR haven’t won away from home since mid-December but gave a good account of themselves in their last away trip, taking a point back to London after a goalless draw at Swansea.
Forest though will be gunning for a win over QPR to keep their promotion-hopes alive. They currently sit 5th in the table after a 2-2 draw at league leaders West Brom last time out.
