Mark Warburton faces these QPR dilemmas ahead of today’s 3pm kick-off v Bournemouth

Published

Mark Warburton and Queens Park Rangers welcome AFC Bournemouth to the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium this afternoon in the Sky Bet Championship, looking for another big three points.

The Hoops have improved greatly since adopting a 3-5-2 formation and have the chance to make it six wins from seven matches against the Cherries this afternoon.

What dilemmas does Mark Warburton face ahead of this one, though? We take a look…

Selection headache?

This is actually a nice dilemma for Warburton to have.

At times this season QPR have been short on options and injuries have hit a small squad but going into today’s game there are a number of calls Warburton can make ahead of another intense run of matches.

Could Chris Willock come in from the start after an impressive cameo v Brentford? Is there an opportunity for Sam Field to make his first start for the club after a goal against the Bees? Are there other players that need a rest? These are all decisions the Hoops boss will be weighing up heading into the clash with the Cherries.

Watch the flanks

Another issue, meanwhile, will be how his side deals with Bournemouth’s attacking flair.

The Cherries look to be back on track at the moment and their attacking players will need to be watched by an improving QPR defence.

We’ve seen in recent matches that both Brentford and Blackburn have looked to knock balls in behind QPR’s wing-backs for their wingers to get onto and Bournemouth have the personnel to do that this afternoon, too.

David Brooks and Junior Stanislas are two of the best wingers in the Championship and so the likes of Todd Kane, Lee Wallace, Rob Dickie and Yoann Barbet need to ensure communication is strong and their distances between one another are right when they’re out of possession.
