Sports Mole previews Birmingham City's trip to Loftus Road to play Queens Park Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers host Birmingham City on Saturday looking to keep pace with Blackpool at the top of the Championship table.

The Hoops and the Seasiders are currently three points clear at the top of the table, and manager Harry Redknapp will be confident of extending the club's unbeaten run at Loftus Road.

Winger Junior Hoilett could be recalled in place of Gary O'Neil in what is likely to be an otherwise unchanged lineup.

Birmingham boss Lee Clark has witnessed his side go four matches without a win, which has seen them fall to 19th position in the table.

Defender Neil Eardley is missing after being ruled out for the season with a knee injury.
