QPR will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Huddersfield Town at Loftus Road on Tuesday evening.
Michael Beale’s side have faltered in their automatic promotion push in recent weeks, with just one point and no goals from their last three games, with a disappointing defeat at home to West Brom last time out.
However, the Hoops still sit fifth in the Championship and have the ideal opportunity to get back on track tonight, as they face bottom-of-the-league Huddersfield in West London.
Here is how Football FanCast expects QPR to line up against the Terriers, with two changes from the side that lost to West Brom at the weekend.
Seny Dieng has started every game for the Hoops so far this season so looks unlikely to lose his place in between the sticks.
Beale’s defence has not been the problem in recent games and he seems likely to stick with a defence that has started the vast majority of games so far this season, with just 20 goals conceded so far this season.
Therefore, Manchester United loanee Ethan Laird starts at right-back, with summer signing Kenneth Paal on the opposite flank and Leon Balogun and Rob Dickie continuing their partnership in the heart of the defence.
The lack of recent goals should see Beale opt for a more attacking set-up against Huddersfield, considering how much they have struggled so far this season, so Andre Dozzell replaces the “intelligent” Sam Field in the middle of the park, starting alongside the industrious Tim Iroegbunam.
This frees up room for another attacking player, with Olamide Shodipo earning a rare start on the wing ahead of Luke Amos, with Chris Willock moving more centrally.
Ilias Chair has been one of the stars of the season so far with three goals and six assists, so he keeps his place on the left wing, supporting the hard-working Lyndon Dykes in attack, in the hope that they can rediscover their goalscoring touch against the Terriers on Tuesday.
