    Match Preview;
    We go into this on the back of 3 wins in a row, a run which has seen us climb to 7th place, and only 3 points off top. So while we go into this match in good form, our opononents haven't won in over a month, and in that time lost 4-0 to Fulham and 2-0 to Blackburn. However, Matt Smith, who left us in July, has scored 2 in 3 games for them and I'm slightly dreading our former front man coming back to haunt us...although the Smith vs Leistner battle could be an interesting one to watch.

    Neil Harris seems to be doing a good job at Millwall, having taken over in 2015 after Holloway was sacked. He is now the longest reigning manager in the Championship, and 7th longest serving manager in English football...suggests he must be doing something right.

    All that history will be irrelevant come 3pm on Saturday, and I'm hopeful that we can continue our good form, and get another win which could push us into the dizzy heights of a playoff position. Way way way too early to get excited about that though...plus we've experienced a slightly unexpected promotion, and it didn't work out well in the top flight. I am just enjoying seeing the progress that is being made, enjoying the little steps forward that are being made, and happy to wait patiently for success to come once the foundations are in place. Can't help but begin to dream, given our form in the last few games. So hard being a QPR fan and balancing heart and head. We'd probably struggle if promoted too soon...but wouldn't it be wonderful. Thoughts?

    I'll update with team news when on the official, and as always, others can give any news they know below...and of course, add numerous players who have played for both that I have missed off...:emoticon-0114-dull:

    Enjoy those who are making the trip and as always...COME ON YOU SUPER HOOPSA!!!!

    Don't think there's any chance of promotion but a run of form can often nick a Play-Off place. We're playing some decent football although riding our luck at times. These type of games can often bring us down to earth when we're getting ahead of ourselves but it's a great opportunity to get altitude sickness looking down from the Top Six...

    Agree, also have to keep perspective. A loss could see us drop to 12th.

    Eze was at Millwall before us but not sure if he ever played for their first team. Hopefully this will inspire him to score a goal or 3 :)

    I’d be happy to see the mighty Rs ping about like a pinball between 8th and 16th all season.

    QPR have sold out the away allocation ( 1,400 ), hopefully they can bring back all three points but for me even a point will do.

    Confidence gradually growing that we can even win some difficult away games. Let's go for all three points!

    Could only find him listed as a youth team player...nothing for the first team.
