Queens Park Rangers have endured a difficult start to the season but Steve McClaren’s side may have turned a corner in the past week.
The West London side secured a much-needed victory in the Championship against Wigan Athletic last weekend, ending a run of four consecutive defeats, and followed that with a triumph over Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup.
That could now provide a platform for QPR to build upon after the international break and the reward for Tuesday night’s victory is a third-round clash with lower league opposition in Blackpool, with McClaren’s side travelling to Bloomfield Road in late September.
With Premier League giants entering the fray, QPR were fortunate to avoid those sides and will fancy their chances in a favourable draw against another League One opponent – although the Tangerines are capable of causing an upset.
Following the draw, many fans shared their opinion on social media and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Still on for the treble! #QPR
