The Championship is back this weekend and we’re certainly looking forward to the return of the club game after the international break.
Indeed, there’s a great set of fixtures to take a closer look at across the second tier and Aston Villa’s trip to QPR is just one of the games that should be a good watch.
QPR, of course, are a different outfit at home and that is what makes this game so close to call with Villa also looking to bounce back from their defeat last time out to Sheffield Wednesday.
It could pan out, then, that the team that is freshest after the internationals win out with both clubs having players away on international duty.
Indeed, two men – Mile Jedinak and Massimo Luongo – clocked up the miles with Australia as they qualified for the World Cup and it seems as though Luongo at least will be fit for QPR.
Indeed, we’re waiting on a Jedinak update but the QPR man will probably feature – with Ian Holloway saying the situation isn’t ideal but that the player will be ready – as per the club’s Twitter account:

Luongo is a real driving force for the Rs and his energy, though perhaps at a lower level than usual, will really come in handy.
Luongo is a real key man for QPR and will need to be at his best to help the Rs get another win.
He may be tired but he’s a true pro and so it would be no surprise to see him put in another big performance.
