QPR V Pool

After a disappointing draw against Southampton Pool travel to London to face QPR, but will Simon Grayson have one eye on the derby on Saturday?

QPR Team News:

'One size' Fitz Hall may return from a groin injury to take the place of Damion Stewart, the former Wigan defender signed for the Hoops in January and missed the last match again Sheffield Wednesday due to the injury. In that match winger Hogan Ephraim received a red card for an elbow on Frank Songo, but the club are considering appealing against the three match ban.

Player to watch: Patrick Agyemang

Since his move from Preston the bumbling forward has done well, he started with 8 goals in 6 games but hasn`t scored in the past five games for the Hoops. For some Preston fans they were happy to see him leave Deepdale as at times Agyemang can be pretty much useless, but when he started banging them in for his new side many started to disagree with his departure.

Blackpool Team News:

There`s no new injuries from the match against Southampton although some players did seem slightly tired / not match fit, Dickov, Southern and Claus looked tired. It`s not know if Grayson will rest anyone or rotate with an eye on the all important derby on Saturday.

Player to watch: Ian Evatt

Returning to his former club Evatt didn`t have a very good time at Loftus Road, making only 21 starts he suffered when Ian Holloway moved on and Evatt suffered injuries. He`ll be looking after Patrick Agyemang who he kept very quiet back in December against Preston.

Match Facts & Stats

The sides have met numerous times over the years but the last visit to Loftus Road ended in 5-0 defeat on the opening day of the 2003/04 season.

According to soccerbase we haven`t won at Loftus Road, to go along with the 5-0 drubbing there been a 3-0, 5-1, 4-0 and 6-1, doesn`t sound good.
