Match Preview QPR begin life after the international break with a trip to Portman Road this weekend, where the R’s will take on Paul Hurst’s Ipswich side. The Tractor Boys are still looking to pick up their first win at home this season but will be buoyed by their excellent victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium last time out. After five-and-a-half years under Mick McCarthy, Ipswich have found the transitional period of adopting a new manager difficult. The opted to appoint Paul Hurst who had done excellent jobs with Grimsby and Shrewsbury in the lower divisions – taking the latter to the League One play-off final last year. But they’ve had a challenging start to the season, which is perhaps not too surprising given the high player turnover they had over the summer. However, performances have been improving of late and their victory over Swansea, who comfortably beat Rangers 3-0 a week before, highlights the progress they are making. McClaren’s side have bounced back well from that disappointing afternoon in Wales. Rangers went on to deservedly beat Reading and then produced a fine second half performance to secure a home draw against Derby. QPR have picked up just one point in their last three visits to Portman Road with last year’s game ending in a dull 0-0 draw on Boxing Day. But the R’s look a far more dangerous side on the road this season and will be hoping to prolong Ipswich’s winless run at home on Saturday.
