QPR: Todd Kane must bring his A-game up against Hull’s Kamil Grosicki

QPR travel to the KCOM Stadium this Saturday to take on Hull, where a win for the Londoners could potentially put them level on points with the Championship’s current leaders West Brom.

Mark Warburton’s side have enjoyed a decent start to the campaign, sitting comfortably in 9th place – just three points off the summit.

Grant McCann’s Hull contrastingly find themselves 16th, just five points off the relegation zone.

Despite the difference in the pair’s start to the season, one potential QPR weak link must keep an eye out for a player who is arguably one of the Tigers’ most dangerous.

Who is it?

Kamil Grosicki.

The 72-cap Poland international has been in fine form for Hull so far this season.

Grosicki has scored four goals and has also grabbed an assist in 11 Championship appearances this term, earning a nomination for the September Player of the Month award for his efforts.

The forward averages 3.2 shots per game and also registers two key passes per game, proving that he is an efficient operator in the final third.

The 31-year-old tends to line up on the left flank, as he has done 11 times already this season, where he will come up against a player who has not been at his best in 2019/20 so far and will need to bring his A-game.

Todd Kane must be focused

Todd Kane – who has made eight appearances this season at right-back for QPR – should be the man directly up against Grosicki, and he really needs to improve on his form.

The 26-year-old was woeful in a recent 2-0 loss to West Brom, losing possession 25 times while also having his showing against the Baggies ridiculed by Gareth Dixon of R’s podcast Ranger Things.

“His performance against West Brom was one of the worst I’ve seen from a full-back”

On that day, he struggled against a tricky player in Grady Diangana, so he must bring a better level of performance with him to the KCOM Stadium or else QPR may get burned by Grosicki’s brilliance.
