Key QPR duo could miss Preston clash

QPR could be without Conor Washington and Grant Hall for their match at Preston later today.

Both players went off during Rangers’ midweek win over Wigan at Loftus Road, where Washington scored his fourth goal in six matches.

The striker was substituted midway through the second half because of a calf problem and faces a fitness test ahead of the game at Deepdale.

Hall, meanwhile, was taken off during the first half of the Wigan game after suffering a shin injury.

Rangers will nevertheless be in good spirits after back-to-back wins lifted them 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

First-team coach Marc Bircham told QPR’s website: “The good thing is the harmony that exists within the squad.

“No-one wants to be a sub, everyone wants to be playing, but you want them to understand that they’re going to get their chance, which they do.

“It’s a happy unit at QPR and everyone is working hard for each other.

“You would naturally expect a lift in confidence after two wins, but like I’ve said before, there was a good feeling amongst the group before that anyway because of how we’ve been playing.

“Hopefully we can keep that going this weekend We will speak about the opposition and their threat, of course we will, but the focus is on us and what we can do.”
