QPR fans react on Twitter at team news vs Barnsley
QPR have travelled north tonight to face a Barnsley side who bravely escaped relegation to League One on the final day of last and into time added-on against a Brentford side gunning for promotion.
Last time out, Mark Warburton’s men played out a goalless draw against Aitor Karanka’s Birmingham City. Tonight’s match-up at Oakwell will see the 16th placed visitors in QPR take on the 21st placed home side Tykes.
QPR find themselves on a run of six Championship games without a win (D4 L2) and enter tonight’s game against the Tykes having failed to score in their last three games. The Rs will have to do without injured duo Luke Amos and George Thomas with Lee Wallace also a possible to miss out with an assessment being done on his fitness to play. Another missing is Bright Osayi-Samuel who rejected a new deal at the club.
A win will be a welcome thing for QPR and, if results go their way, will lift them above the halfway point in the table. Even though it is early doors in the Sky Bet Championship season, Mark Warburton will be wanting his side going in the right direction.

Manager pre-match thoughts
As reported on the QPR website, here are some of Mark Warburton’s thoughts on the upcoming game:
On last season’s fixture: “I lost more sleep over that away game than any other last season because we were so poor in our defending. They scored an early goal, we equalised quickly through Luke Amos and we could have scored X-amount of goals but we were so open.”
On Valerien Ismael: “I don’t think the new manager will change too much. I think he’ll wait until the international break to put his handprint really on their team. He is comfortable in a 4-2-3-1, or with a three [at the back] and personally I think they will go with the three.”

4-4-2? Big game for Niko to show Warburton something towards getting more playing time. Big game early on to grab some points! #QPR 🔵⚪️
