Preview: QPR v Bristol City

QPR v Bristol City
Sky Bet Championship
Loftus Road
Tuesday, October 18th (3pm)

Bristol City travel to West London looking to bounce back from defeat at Cardiff last Friday.

All the key information on QPR can be found below.

QPR
Rangers haven't won at home since the opening day of the season, a 3-0 success over Leeds United. In their past eight games, the Hoops have only won once. That run also saw them hammered 6-0 at home by Newcastle United - a club record reverse on their own patch.

MANAGER
Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink took his first steps into coaching in 2009 with Woking, before working with the Under-16s at his old club Chelsea. He was part of the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest before landing a year at Royal Antwerp in Belgium. His first steps into management on UK soil came with Burton Albion, where he led them to the League Two title in his first season. That alerted QPR to come calling in December 2015.

OFFICIALS
Andrew Madley will be in charge of the match, assisted by Mark Russell and Andrew Fox. Simon Hooper has been named as the fourth official.

TICKETS
The match is pay on the night for visiting supporters, payment by cash only.

LAST TIME OUT
QPR 1-0 Bristol City, May 7th 2016. Karl Henry's stunning strike earned all three points of the final day of last season. Youngsters George Dowling and Zak Vyner came on in the game.

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 12th
FA Cup: Third Round (Lost to Nottingham Forest)
EFL Cup: Second Round (Lost to Carlisle United)

DID YOU KNOW?
QPR's Loftus Road was the first English stadium to lay a plastic pitch in 1981. It lasted until 1988.
