Championship

Wells and Scowen must start against Blackburn Rovers today

Wells and Scowen must start against Blackburn Rovers today

Queens Park Rangers have been in sublime form recently having won four of their last five Championship fixtures as part of a five-game winning streak. 

The Hoops managed to get the better of Aston Villa last time out in what was a very close encounter at Loftus Road, with Pawel Wszolek grabbing the only goal of the game.

Interestingly, Queens Park Rangers will travel to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers in their next Championship fixture. Tony Mowbray’s side will be desperate to return to winning ways having gone their last two games without a win, so the Hoops will be up against it away from home later on today.

With that in mind, Steve McClaren must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO QPR stars…

Nakhi Wells

Nakhi Wells has only managed to find the back of the net on one occasion this season, but he has been able to link up play and hold up the ball well in the final third.

Indeed, against a very physical Blackburn Rovers side it’s important that the Hoops try to make the most of Wells’ pace by getting him in behind the opposition’s defence, with Tomer Hemed flicking the ball on.

Josh Scowen

Geoff Cameron was deployed at the heart of the midfield last time out against Aston Villa, but Josh Scowen impressed after being brought on as his replacement.

Indeed, the 25-year-old offered a different dynamic moving forward and was solid in defence, so he definitely deserves a chance to showcase his talents in the starting lineup later on today.
