The win will prove significant for Harry Redknapp and his charges ahead of the clash with 5th place Reading as it was the first time this season that the club had beaten a team from inside’s the Championship’s top 9.
With the monkey off their back QPR will now hope to push and live up to their tags as title favourites.
Alejandro Faurlin is out of the game after being stretchered off last weekend. The Argentine midfielder suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury 13 minutes form the end of the game with Derby and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The injury is the second time in less than 12 months that the 27 year old has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament and the club’s head of medical services Peter Florida James has tipped the player to bounce back, telling the club’s official website: “It’s a really nasty cruciate injury.
“We’re all desperately disappointed for Ali, but he is a great professional and I’m sure he’ll work just as hard at recovering from this injury as he did from his previous ACL rupture.”
There was some positives though for Redknapp with Matt Phillips impressing last weekend.
The former Blackpool winger has struggled for fitness and form so far this season but he produced his best display in a blue and white shirt last weekend and will now aim to kick on for the rest of the season.
Reading meanwhile will look to bounce back from the disappointment of losing to struggling Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
Nigel Adkins side headed into the game with the previously winless Sheffield on the back of just one defeat in 9 games but surprisingly crashed to a 5-2 loss with three of the five goals coming in the first half.
