3. QPR - 16 GP, 7-7-2, +14, 28 Points 15. Brentford - 16 GP, 7-2-7, -4, 23 Points ------ 11 November, 19:45 Loftus Road ------ Rangers News Padula and Edghill should be available. Rowlands and Bircham considered "more likely than not" to be available, but will face fitness tests. Furlong, Shittu, and Rose are still out, but Shittu is due to play in a reserve team match this week. http://www.qpr.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10373~449492,00.html The Opponent This match was scheduled for October 11th, but was postponed because Brentford had three players called up to various youth international matches. http://www.brentfordfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10421~431062,00.html Brentford started the season in poor form, losing 4 of their first 5 league matches. By the time of the Oct. 11th match, they'd begun to right the ship, with 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in their last six. Since then, in league play, they have 3 wins (including a 4-0 home win over Brighton) and 1 loss, so they're in good form. Most recently they defeated Gainsborough in the first round of the FA Cup. Brentford has sold 1,600 of their 2,900 allocation and the match is not all-ticket, so they may get some more walkups. http://www.brentfordfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10421~447683,00.html The Series This is a very even series over time, with Rangers winning 20, Brentford winning 21, and 22 draws. However, the clubs hadn't been on the same level of late, with the four meetings in the two years that Rangers have been in Division 2 being the only meetings between the teams since the 1965/66 season. Those four meetings ended with one QPR victory and three draws (two were 0-0). The clubs first met in the 1920/21 season. The Referee Roy Pearson will control the proceedings. He has issued 47 yellows and 1 red in 15 matches this season (4 D1, 3 D2, 4 D3, 1 LC, 1 FAC, 2 LDV). He hasn't worked a QPR match since working two road draws (at Stockport, at Sheffield United) in the First Division in 99/00.
