Match preview: QPR vs Forest

26 April 2019

Nottingham Forest head to Loftus Road tomorrow to take on Queens Park Rangers in the final away game of the 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship season (kick-off 3pm).

The Reds will be aiming to end the campaign on a high with back-to-back victories and their first win on the road since November.

Forest will be looking to avenge QPR's first ever victory at The City Ground earlier in the season, while also reproduce a fine performance last season which saw them run out 5-2 winners at Loftus Road. 

Team news

Yohan Benalouane and Jack Colback remain suspended for The Reds, while Sam Byram is also available again having missed Monday's game against Middlesbrough.

From the Forest camp

The opposition view

QPR caretaker manager John Eustace wants his side to finish the season strongly in their final home game of the campaign.

He said: "We know it's going to be an extremely tough game.

"Martin O'Neill is a very experienced manager, a very good manager and I am sure he will have his team ready.

"For us, the players want to finish with a good performance as a thank you to the fans for all their loyal support this season."

One to watch - Nahki Wells

QPR's top scorer this season, Nahki Wells is a proven goalscorer at Championship level and is likely to be their main threat on Saturday.
