THE TEAM NEWS

QPR

  • QPR restart their Championship season perched relatively safety in mid-table although with six points separating them from the play-off places, they will see themselves as in with a chance of breaking into the top six.
  • The key for the London side will be to pick up the momentum that had gathered before the season’s suspension as they were unbeaten in their last six league games.
  • Captain Grant Hall will play no part for them in the season’s resumption having left the club after failing to agree terms on a new contract.

BARNSLEY

  • Barnsley sit rock bottom of the SkyBet Championship and must overturn a daunting seven-point gap between themselves and 21st place if they wish to avoid going straight back down to League 1.
  • The Yorkshire side had lost their last two Championship fixtures although a 0-1 victory away at Hull back in February has given them a slight glimmer of hope to take with them into the restart.
  • Forward Mallik Wilks had been on loan at the Tigers but will re-join Barnsley at the end of the month but of course he won’t feature at the weekend.

THE PREDICTION

Barnsley are staring down the barrel of an immediate return to League 1 and face a tough away trip here against a side still containing faint play-off hopes. QPR have proven extremely strong at Loftus Road this season and should win this game comfortably, picking up the momentum they left behind upon the season’s stoppage.
