After that result, Villa are three places and two points behind us in 16th place. We'll have to watch out on Friday night for Tammy Abraham and Jonathan Kodjia who both have four goals already this year. However, we now have Freeman, Eze and Hemed all on three each, and a win on Friday night would see us move up to 7th, albeit only until games are played on Saturday. Another win, and Mclaren continuing his current turning around of the teams fortunes, and things could start to look very promising for this season going forward. Don't want to get over excited though. Villa have now won one in four, and the once European Champions are not looking set for an easy season after missing out on promotion last year despite reaching the playoffs. Under the lights, live on Sky, I really hope we put on another good show against these so called 'big boys.' From the official: QPR take on Aston Villa tonight hoping to make it three wins from three games and cap an almost perfect October for Steve McClaren’s side. The R’s, who comprehensively beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 during the week, will be looking to continue their fine month against an Aston Villa side still finding their feet under a new manager. The last time the two sides met QPR put in what was probably their best performance of the year in an excellent 3-1 victory at Villa Park, which destabilised our opponent’s automatic promotion push. The side from the Midlands had to then settle for a play-off place and were defeated 1-0 by Fulham in the final. Truthfully they have probably not yet fully recovered from that and despite keeping manager Steve Bruce for the first quarter of the season, Villa opted to make a change earlier this month. Dean Smith is now the man in charge, having done a fine job at keeping Brentford competitive during the last few years. A self-confessed Villa fan – Smith seems to have the full backing of an impatient but enormous fan-base. A win would see Villa overtake QPR in the league table, so there’s much to play for this evening with very little to separate the teams at the top and bottom of the Championship. And Villa will know they have performed well at Loftus Road since their relegation to this division back in 2016 – with QPR beaten on both occasions in the last couple of campaigns. COME ON YOU R'ssss!!!!
