PREVIEW Queens Park Rangers v Oxford United

A full guide to tonight's Carabao Cup tie

24 August 2021

Oxford United travel to QPR this evening in the Carabao Cup second round (7.45pm)

The U's were beaten for the first time this season when losing 2-1 at Bolton on Saturday but have been in impressive form ahead of the trip to Loftus Road, a game that always stirs memories of the 1986 Milk Cup final.

United have Captain Elliott Moore available again after a chest infection but are without the influential James Henry who felt his hamstring tighten ahead of Saturday's game.

Sam Long and Jamie Hanson are still out but there were no new injuries at Bolton and Karl Robinson needs to weigh up whether to bring in any of the younger players from the under 21 squad to give them experience: Leon Chambers-Parillon, Josh Johnson and Tyler Goodrham were all part of the squad that beat Burton to reach this stage.

See Karl previewing the game in iFollow right now where we have Mark Sykes as our guest in the new look Preview Show.

QPR have started the season strongly with Rob Dickie in outstanding form and the team adding a 2-2 draw at home to Barnsley to their impressive start. Rangers are fifth in the early Championship table, unbeaten so far, but Manager Mark Warburton is likely to make changes this evening.

"I’m not going to lie, we are walking wounded at the moment" he said. "But we’ll put out a side to go and win the game. Oxford will want to win to progress to the next round and we do too. They are a team who like to play good football and have a good mix of youth and experience. They’ll pose a threat and can hurt teams when given the space and time. We have to deny them it. But we are always confident of winning games".
