After previously losing five on the bounce, it is incredible that QPR are still in with a chance of reaching the Championships playoffs in the final few weeks of the season.
Friday’s 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town finally saw Mark Warburton‘s side show some fight and desire to halt their losing run, with Luke Amos and Ilias Chair netting to earn their side a point after twice coming from behind.
Many of the top half of the Championship failed to win in a strange set of results on Good Friday, so a point saw QPR drop a place to 12th in the table, but also move to within five points of Sheffield United in the top six.
As a result, their slim hopes of taking part in next month’s playoffs are far from over, so if the Hoops can string together three or four victories in their final four matches, then who knows where they could end up.
A repeat of their meeting back in November would do nicely for Monday’s hosts, when Andre Gray netted a sensational late goal to earn them a 2-1 win after falling behind to a Tom Lawrence strike early on.
Despite Keiren Westwood recovering to retake his place in goal for QPR on Friday, their goalkeeping situation remains awful.
Seny Dieng, David Marshall, Jordan Archer and Joe Walsh all remain unavailable, and the quartet are joined by the outfield absences of Rob Dickie, Jeff Hendrick and Chris Willock.
The unavailability of the latter continues to be a huge blow given his seven goals and 11 assists this season, so much of the creativity will be provided by Chair and Amos once again.
Lee Wallace is unlikely to return from his injury, and with the absence of Dickie continuing as well, Warburton is likely to stick with a four-man defence on Monday.
As for the visitors, Max Bird will serve the final game of his three-match suspension, with fellow regular Ravel Morrison remaining a doubt due to illness.
Rooney has no fresh injury concerns to contend with, but Colin Kazim-Richards remains sidelined with an ankle problem that is likely to keep him out for the remainder of the campaign.
With very little options available, the boss could well stick with the same starting 11 that performed heroically against Fulham.

Sixteen-year-old Carlos Richards made his debut off the bench in that game, and is expected to be amongst the substitutes once more on Monday.
