Championship

Scowen must step up if Cameron’s injured this Saturday

Scowen must step up if Cameron’s injured this Saturday

QPR are arguably the form side in the Championship at the moment, having only lost one of their past 11 league games and are on a three match winning streak. 

The Rs have climbed rapidly up the table after a disastrous start to the season, where they lost their opening four games and were rooted at the bottom. They now sit in 10th place, and are in touching distance of the play-off places.

One of the key figures in The Hoops’ revival this season is Geoff Cameron, who signed at the end of August on loan from Stoke. The American has been a rock in the midfield for The Rs, in both attack and defence, and has become one of the first names on the team sheet for manager Steve McClaren.

However, according to West London Sport, the American is 50-50 as to whether he will play this weekend against Blackburn. His absence will be monumental, and there is a massive ask of the man to step up and partner Massimo Luongo in the heart of the field.

The man to step up looks to be Josh Scowen. The 25-year-old has featured in 12 of the club’s 15 league games so far this season, but primarily from the bench behind the American and Australian. Scowen has a huge responsibility in aiding the defence, something that Cameron does expertly, but also transition the ball to their lethal attackers.

Cameron is vital to QPR, and fans will be sweating over his fitness. But whomever steps up must do a great job, as the club do not want to drop points in what will be a tough game at Blackburn.
