Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship encounter between Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers will be looking to build on their comfortable win over Bournemouth when they welcome Blackburn Rovers to Loftus Road on Saturday.

Harry Redknapp's side joined Leicester City at the top of the Championship on Tuesday evening with the 3-0 success over the Cherries.

Blackburn's 3-1 defeat at Ipswich Town in midweek leaves them 13th in the standings, seven points adrift of the playoff places.

QPR midfielder Jermaine Jenas could be brought into the side in the place of Gary O'Neil.

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer could make changes to his team, with Alan Judge and Rudy Gestede in line to start.
