Derby County v Queens Park Rangers Preview, Championship, 31st March 2017

Derby County head into this game having had an average season so far and currently occupy 10th position in the league table with 53pts having secured 14 wins, 11 draws and 13 defeats from their 38 matches played.

The hosts have not been playing well recently having picked up just 5pts from their five last league matches played, of which they have lost twice and although the club is in no danger of any threat from becoming involved in the relegation fight for survival, they could still possibly make an end of season promotion play off place if the could bridge the 9pts gap.

Queens Park Rangers head into the game having had a poor season so far and currently occupy 15th position in the league table with 50pts having secured 14 wins, 8 draws and 16 defeats from their 38 matches played.

The visitors have been playing well though recently and have picked up 10pts from their last five league matches of which they have lost just once and although the club is still far from safe of being involved in a relegation fight for survival, their recent form suggests that it should only be another couple of weeks before they guarantee their safety.

Derby County Team News :

Darren Bent will be back in the Derby squad for Gary Rowett’s first home game as Rams boss against QPR.

Illness ruled Bent out of the draw with rivals Nottingham Forest prior to the international break but the striker has since resumed training.

Midfielder Bradley Johnson will also be fit after missing training last week with a knock, but Jason Shackell (back), Nick Blackman (knee), Craig Forsyth (knee) and George Thorne (leg) are out for some time with long term injury problems.

Queens Park Rangers Team News :

QPR will check on the fitness of Pawel Wszolek and Massimo Luongo. Polish winger Wszolek has been struggling with illness but Rangers are hopeful he will be available.

Midfielder Luongo is a doubt, however, after picking up an injury while on international duty with Australia.

Defender Jack Robinson is fit after a hamstring problem and winger Kazenga LuaLua is also progressing well following an ankle injury.
