Queens Park Rangers have the opportunity to go clear at the top of the Sky Bet Championship at least for a few hours this weekend as they take on Barnsley in the Saturday lunchtime game.
The Hoops have had a bright start to the campaign with two wins and a draw getting chalked up and, with two home games in the next couple of weeks, they’ll be looking to really consolidate their early start with a potential six-point haul.
Tomorrow, they take on a Barnsley side that sits 13th having won one, drawn one and lost one so far this year, and this is the latest team news for the Hoops ahead of that one…
Moses Odubajo will be missing through suspension as he picked up a red card earlier this week at Middlesbrough, paving the way for Osman Kakay to come in.
On the other flank, Sam McCallum could be in contention to be involved after recovering from illness, though Lee Wallace picked up an assist on Wednesday and could well stay in the side.
Further forwards, there seems little need to change the midfield set up and, with Chris Willock performing so well on Wednesday, it’s currently hard to make a case for QPR to revert back to using two out and out centre-forwards up front.
Charlie Austin is back in the fold after a knee injury and came on against Boro whilst Lyndon Dykes was on the scoresheet, so it’s in the final third Mark Warburton perhaps has the biggest call to make this weekend.
