QPR vs Argyle

QPR (H) | Match Preview

The Game  
Argyle v Queens Park Rangers. Home Park. Tuesday, 9 April. 7.45pm. Sky Bet Championship. 

The Opposition 
QPR are 17th in the Championship, with 46 points from their 41 games. They are two places and two points ahead of Argyle, who could go above Rangers with a win.  

Having struggled for most of the season, QPR’s form has picked up dramatically in the last two or three months. They have lost just three of their last 14 games, winning seven of them. Their most recent game, though, was at home to Sheffield Wednesday, which the visitors won 2-0.  

The Gaffer 
Marti Cifuentes took over as QPR manager at the end of October, following the departure of Gareth Ainsworth.

The 41-year-old Catalonian managed several lower league teams in his native Spain before joining Sandefjord in Norway, AaB in Denmark and Hammarby in Sweden, who were playing in the UEFA Europa Conference League when he switched Scandinavia for West London.  

The Squad 
Usually playing either from an inside left position, Ilias Chair (below) is QPR’s focal point. Born in Belgium, he has 12 caps for the team of his father's birth, Morocco. He has now played 231 games for the R’s, scoring five goals this season.

Chris Willock is likely to play on the right of a QPR front three. The 26-year-old began his career at Arsenal, moving to Benfica in 2017. After a loan at Huddersfield Town, Willock moved to QPR in 2020 and has played 139 times for the Hoops. He is the older brother of Newcastle United’s Joe Willock.  

Ever present in the QPR goal this season has been  Asmir Begovic. Now 36, Begovic is a vastly experienced player, having represented, most notably, Stoke City, Chelsea and Bournemouth. He has played 63 times for Bosnia and Herzegovina. He left Everton in 2023, where he had spent two seasons as backup goalkeeper, to sign for QPR.  

Earlier This Season  
The sides met at MATRADE Loftus Road earlier this season, in December, and played out a 0-0 draw. Argyle started the game very strongly, with multiple chances to take the lead, but could not get themselves in front. 

Before half-time, Dan Scarr was sent off, meaning Argyle were forced to be more defensive, with ten men, but they held out superbly and earned a valuable point.
