MILLWALL will play a behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR to keep fitness levels ticking over during the international break.
The Lions have a free weekend coming up and do not play again until they visit south London rivals Charlton on November 22.
So assistant Marc Bircham has used his connections at Loftus Road to organise a match with an XI from Harry Redknapp's squad.
Bircham said: "We've arranged a reserve game against QPR for today.
"The players that need to bump up their fitness will be playing and we'll put out a strong team.
"QPR will be playing the likes of Jordan Mutch, Joey Barton and Adel Taarabt so it will be a proper game.
"Mathias Ranegie, Jack Powell, Jermaine Easter and Angel Martinez will be involved, and Byron Webster might play a little bit too.
"It will be quite a strong side."
Bircham, who has admitted an FA charge of improper conduct, hopes the Lions can use the break to their advantage.
"We're not too far off," he said. "We've got to tweak things – we could be better defensively and more clinical when we're attacking, because we do get chances.
"If we stop giving teams a two-goal head start, we'll have a good chance of winning games.
"We're not looking vulnerable at the back or giving teams lots of chances but we're getting punished for every little lapse.
"That was happening when Ollie and I first came in – teams weren't having a lot of shots on goal against us but they were going in.
"There's been a bit of bad luck involved in our recent results but we'll be alright if we tighten up.
"The lads will have a few days off over the weekend and then next week will be a normal week, preparing for the Charlton game."
