Match Preview


Wigan Athletic head to Loftus Road knowing that a win will secure their place in the Championship Play Off Final on 24 May.

The two sides played out a goalless draw at the DW Stadium on Friday giving tonight's host the edge this evening.

Latics have not won at QPR's home in the last four attempts, their last victory at Loftus Road coming back in March 2003 when the two sides met in League Division 2, a Nathan Ellington strike just after the break sealed a 1-0 win.

Clint Hill appears to have escaped any action after appearing to elbow Rob Kiernan in Friday's game.  Nico Kranjcar and Kevin could be set for recalls after being introduced from the bench on Friday.

Uwe Rosler looks to have settled for Scott Carson in goal.  Ben Watson (broken leg) and Chris McCann (knee) are the only definite absentees.
