Preview: QPR (A)

City have won four of their last five league matches as they prepare to hit the road for a second time this week.

QPR are their next opponents on Saturday, four days after a hard-fought and memorable 1-0 win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Jamie Paterson was on the scoresheet that night, latching on to Niclas Eliasson's cross - the winger now leads the charts with 11 assists for the season to date.

Saturday's trip to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium will be the Robins' second this season, following the Carabao Cup clash back in August. The sides drew 3-3 before the Hoops were victorious in the penalty shootout that night but City got their revenge in the reverse Sky Bet Championship game at Ashton Gate - goals from Ádám Nagy and Benik Afobe helped City to a 2-0 win that day.

Ádám Nagy and Benik Afobe grabbed their first goals for the club to help City secure all three points at home to QPR.

The goals came in both halves, the opener from Nagy who continued to impress on his Ashton Gate debut. He fired City ahead with a low half-volley before Afobe doubled the Robins’ lead just before the hour-mark.

QPR keeper Joe Lumley was to blame as his mis-kick allowed Andreas Weimann to capitalise, who found Afobe to strike home.

In doing so, Lee Johnson’s men recorded their first win of the season to lift themselves up to 10th in the Sky Bet Championship.
