BURTON ALBION travel to an improving QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday and have the opportunity to move out of the relegation places with many of their rivals in FA Cup action.Nigel Clough’s men have lost three Championship games on the bounce but will feel aggrieved they haven’t got the results their performances have warranted.
January loan signings from Fulham, Cauley Woodrow and Lasse Vigen Christensen go straight into the squad after signing on Friday, with Clough delighted to boost his attacking options.
The two sides could only draw in the first meeting but since Ian Holloway took charge of the London side, things have improved at Loftus Road.
A favourite amongst the Hoops faithful, Holloway returned to replace our former boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who was sacked following a poor start to the season.
Holloway has steadied the ship and his policy of bringing through youth is paying off with Ryan Manning starring since breaking into the starting 11.
The Irish youngster scored his first goal for the club during the draw with high-flying Fulham and will be one to watch at the weekend.
Burton, however, can close the gap on their rivals – despite their good form – and will be looking to get their season back on track in London.
The Brewers have failed to score in their previous four games, so Clough will be hoping Woodrow and Christensen can hit the ground running.
Woodrow is an England Under-21 international and can add the attacking impetuous needed to fire Burton to safety.
You can back our boys at 11/4 with club sponsor TempoBet.
Lloyd Dyer has been in good form and his speed could prove crucial on the counter attack, with QPR vulnerable to conceding goals.
And you can back the winger to score anytime at 11/5.
