Preview: Queens Park Rangers vs. Watford

Sports Mole previews the Easter Monday Championship meeting between Queens Park Rangers and Watford at Loftus Road.

When their wage bill is taken into consideration, Harry Redknapp would have expected his Queens Park Rangers side to be within the automatic promotion places when Watford made the trip to Loftus Road on Easter Monday.

The fact is that a squad that earns more money collectively than Borussia Dortmund is fourth in the Championship standings and will have to settle for a place in the playoffs.

The R's will be without Tottenham Hotspur loanee left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto for the visit of Watford because of suspension, but that aside, Redknapp has few absentees.

Ravel Morrison could be recalled having started the 1-0 loss against Leicester City on the bench, while Richard Dunne and Bobby Zamora may also feature.

As for the visiting Hornets, who harbour slim hopes of joining QPR in the top six come the end of the campaign, they may well be unchanged from the side that defeated Ipswich Town 3-1 last time out.

Watford last won at Loftus Road back in December 2010 when Danny Graham scored a brace during a 3-1 victory.
