Preview: Queens Park Rangers vs. Barnsley

Sports Mole looks ahead to struggling Barnsley's trip to Queens Park Rangers in the Championship.

The Championship's bottom side Barnsley face a daunting trip to high-flying Queens Park Rangers this weekend in urgent need of a win.

David Flitcroft's Tykes ended a run of straight defeats with last weekend's 1-1 draw with Reading, and could move out of the bottom three with a surprise win.

QPR are in fine form right now, going into the game off the back of five consecutive wins, a run that has moved them up to second in the table behind Burnley on goal difference.

Harry Redknapp's side defeated Middlesbrough 2-0 in their last league outing.
