Both are the only teams still searching for a Premier League win, and both occupy places in the bottom three.
Reading have endured the worst possible preparation for the game, throwing away a 4-0 lead at home to Arsenal in the Capital One Cup, going on to lose 7-5 in extra time.
Brian McDermott will look to take the positives from the display, and hope they can produce the same sort of goal scoring form.
Mark Hughes will be desperate for the points having come under increasing pressure for his teams poor start, despite spending heavily in the transfer window. His team were unlucky to come away with nothing in their last game, losing 1-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates following a late offside goal.
Jason Roberts is in line to start having impressed so much in midweek, whilst QPR have no new injury concerns to deal with.
Prediction: QPR 2-2 Reading
