Preview: Millwall vs. QPR

RICHARD Chaplow and Scott McDonald have returned to training after injuries and are in contention to face QPR on Saturday.

Chaplow missed Millwall's 5-2 defeat to Bournemouth before the international break with a groin strain, while McDonald has been struggling with a knee problem for the past month.

But the duo returned to training in the latter part of this week and manager Steve Lomas is hopeful of including them in his matchday squad.

Midfielder Chaplow's return is particularly timely with Shaun Derry ineligible to play against his parent club. Alan Dunne begins a two-match suspension, so Paul Connolly is likely to come in at right back.

Mark Beevers remains sidelined with a knee ligament injury.

QPR will be without Tottenham loanee Tom Carroll after he picked up an ankle injury whilst on duty with England U21s.

    Two weeks off and hopefully this a chance for a fresh start.

    Hopefully we'll see something similar to how we played against Blackpool & Leeds - I don't think Lomas would survive another Derby-type defeat.

      @Micky Lions:
      Nope. More of the same punishing crap we've already been served up I'm afraid! Damage limitations exercise.

    The problem here is that the next three games are exceptionally difficult. Even if we lose all three, as long as we're not routed, then Lomas will still be hanging in there.
    The inexperience is showing through and now Lomas has whipped up Ambler into a frenzy and they're both acting like Vegas poker players. Problem is everyone knows what are in their hands.
    Nothing.

    We're going to need to be patient tomorrow, and if we're lucky, we can grind out a result. No getting on players backs if they misplace a pass in the first 5 minutes. And if we do concede early keep on making enough noise and get back in it. Team needs to learn how to see out a game for 90 minutes not throw it away and start arguing with each other if it doesn't go our way.

      @tomahawk: As long as we show a bit of fight, then a draw will be a decent result.

      @tomahawk: This is a quality post!! Players will show their fight as long as we give them our full support right from the off... and even if we go a goal down!!

      Have to realise we are almost 3/1 to win this.... and we are the home team!! Just goes to show how good QPR really are

    Have to be hopeful tomorrow but the weakness is going to be at the back especially if Connolly plays, am very disappointed that SL has done nothing to strengthen our back four.

    Less than 24 hours away from my fixture of the season. I am going to be getting behind the wall 100%and giving it to Barton and Rednapp & Co from start to finish. If we all did it we would win as they would not be able to handle it. COYL.

    got to be realistic a draw would be a very good result, though we're all thinking about how many times we've turned over the teams at the top, and lost to the teams at the bottom! all about the performance tomorrow. we would forgive them a narrow defeat if they make a game of it, but a heavy loss by 3/4 and Mr Lomas imo might only get one more game, JB at the game tomorrow.

    A big loss will see Lomas on his way but I think we'll score early tomorrow and see a draw out after qpr equalise late on.

      @lionking: I hope you are right, Qpr's matches seem to have a pattern to them which is o-o for 70 minutes then they score and game over. If we can score first it will f*** there game plan and the crowd can do the rest. I think Lomas has the gift of the gab and will not get sacked if we lose this one or the Reading game.

    Gents,

    We cannot perpetually go on blaming the Manager if individuals do not perform! We all know that to win you must invariably play well as a collective, unfortunately we do not have individual match winning players, therefore we need to play well together as we did against Blackpool etc to have success.
    Lomas barely altered the side which went to Bournemouth, neither I suspect did he tell them to do anything different in his pre match talk, but we failed miserably because we did not perform, at least that's how I see it.
    Unfortunately at the level we ply our trade the Managerial standard is adequate at best, similarly the skills standards of players, subsequently sheer commitment and effort from the players and the backing of the supporters is in my opinion all it is that makes the difference.
    We can and have no reason not to do well today, I believe it just depends on the mindset and tenacity of players.

    I think we had a great chance to get all 3 points today. Zamora and Johnson are both out so we should be able to contain their second string striker(s). Meanwhile to win have have to score more goals than them, but we all know it's not that simple, but maybe, just maybe we can do a Blackpool or Leeds today, I really hope we can, and put these bad recent results in the past behind us.
