Last time out it was a case of another lead, and more points dropped for Neil Harris’ Millwall side who have now dropped seven points from winning positions, had they accumulated those points they could have been sitting in the top six of the Championship table. The Lions yet again will go on the road in search of their first away win of the campaign at a QPR team that were tipped for relegation by many but are currently sitting one point and one place above Millwall, who are in 19th, just above the drop zone.
Following their dismal start to the campaign which included a 7 (SEVEN) -1 thrashing at West Brom, Steve McClaren’s R’s have picked up some kind of form and are unbeaten in four games in all competitions following their 2-1 victory away at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, they will be keen to continue their good form and will see this as a perfect game to do so with Millwall unable to finish their chances and unable to hold onto a lead when they do go in front. McClaren will be hoping Luke Freeman and Eberechi Eze will be on form and help his side on the way to their third win of the season and help to steer clear of the relegation zone.
For Millwall a win in any shape or form would be most welcome to the fans and Neil Harris, who will yet again be facing selection dillemas as he tries to find that successful formula. with none of his strikers seemingly firing on all cylinders.
I think it’s time to bring in Bradshaw for his first start as well as Skalak who could both provide a different dimension to the Millwall game, but whether Harris will want to experiment in such an important game so early in the season will remain to be seen.
Ben Amos looks set to keep his place in goal as well after being picked in in favour of Jordan Archer, and it seems to be the same with Right-Back Conor McLaughlin who has also been preferred to Mahlon Romeo.
This London derby will be vital for both sides as QPR look to continue good form and Millwall look to get themselves out of the rut they find themselves in. I feel this will be a fiendishly difficult game all in all for the Lions but backed by a sell out away support I think they’ll get over the line in a 1-0 victory under the lights at Loftus Road this Wednesday.
