QPR team news: McClaren has three back in contention for Reading trip

Queens Park Rangers will be looking to end their rot of three straight defeats when they meet Reading at The Madejski Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Steve McClaren’s side are currently sitting just outside the relegation zone following their 3-0 loss to Swansea City at the weekend.

In those three defeats, QPR had failed to find the back of the net on each occasion, something the west London outfit will be looking to correct immediately.

The Royals sit one place and a further point behind the Rs but come into the game against the Loftus Road outfit with a hard-fought point against Brentford.

McClaren should be looking at making changes for the trip to Reading and he will have the possibility of bringing two men back into the team.

According to a match preview by Sky Sports, Toni Leistner could make a return to the first-team after missing the defeat to the Swans at the weekend.

The German defender was absent with a groin injury but could be involved as he was back in training.

Jordan Cousins is available following his one-match suspension, whilst Sean Goss is back in contention after recovering from a back injury.

The Verdict:

QPR will be looking to stop the rot the side are currently undergoing and McClaren should look to make the changes necessary.

The Loftus Road outfit were previously on a four-game unbeaten run before they suffered they went on their poor start, whilst Reading enjoyed a victory the last time they played at home.

Having the likes of Leistner, Goss and Cousins available will be a huge boost to the side and will give them a better chance of getting the three points on Tuesday night.
