After a two-week break for International matches both sides will be rearing to go. ‘Boro could climb a place to third, a point behind leaders Hull, with a win while 13th place QPR could move up to 11th with three points.
Aitor Karanka’s side have won three of their last four games however from a morale perspective that defeat came in their last outing, a 3-0 reversal at the hands of Hull.
QPR for their part have won just one of their last 6 games, losing three and drawing two during that run. The club are currently under the temporary control of Neil Warnock following the sacking of Chris Ramsey.
Warnock and his assistant, Kevin Blackwell are not in the frame for the job on a permanent basis with the likes of Nigel Pearson and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, currently with Burton Albion, the two current favourites.
However this weekend the veteran manager will be in the dug-out. Warnock has some decisions to make with Junior Hoilett and Massimo Luongo set to be assessed after returning late from International duty while Leroy Fer and James Perch could be involved.
Middlesbrough for their part could have Christian Stuani on the bench with Diego Fabbrini and David Nugent up-front and Stewart Downing in support.
Nugent has scored 4 goals so far this season, the same as his Italian strike partner while Downing and Stuani both have 3.
‘Boro lost 3-1 at home the last time these two met with Bobby Zamora and Ravel Morrison scoring in the 94th and 95th minute. In all, the Hoops have the recent advantage over their rivals, winning four of the last five meetings, conceding just 3 goals and scoring 11.
