Wells won’t play. That’s encouraging.

2-1. Revenge is sweet.

Nice poll, I approve.

I would take a draw.

Burnley doing us a little favour and recalling Wells who has scored 14 for QPR this season which is a bonus. Up until the 4-2 drubbing this season we've been a fairly longstanding bogey team for QPR but they definitely broke the curse. Would be good to get some revenge as we we're awful that day and lost Cunnginham for the season.

The squad has been to Portugal and had a good rest so you'd expect to see the same XI that won so comfortably at Sheffield Wednesday.

Does any know why this isn't being streamed on iFollow or Sky Sports Red Button?

Thanks, Thor!

Obviously, the one wrong answer to the poll is the last one :lol:

I thought it would be on iFollow if it's not on Sky?

Not on iFollow either, just radio commentary.

Bugger, thought it was on the red button tonight. Wonder why they are only showing 2 games?

This is why...

"Rovers have opted against allowing Sky Sports to show their home match with QPR tomorrow night.

The game is a rescheduled fixture, with the side’s having been due to face each other at the weekend only for the game to be put back three days after Rangers qualified for the FA Cup fourth round.

With it not being a scheduled matchday, even despite eight games taking place, it was at the home club’s discretion as to whether the game would be shown or not.

And Rovers have decided against offering Sky the chance to show their match live."

Someone hoping to get more fans into the ground instead?

At a guess, with it being a rescheduled Saturday match, I imagine it falls outside any pre-agreed deals and therefore there's no extra income from Sky for it?

Anyone overseas can watch it for £5 through QPR.

https://www.qpr.co.uk/news/club-news/wa ... or-just-5/
QPR fans based outside the UK and Ireland can watch Tuesday night's Sky Bet Championship clash against Blackburn Rovers live on QPR+.

Overseas supporters who purchase a match pass - which is priced at just £5 - can enjoy a multi-camera, live stream production with replays, commentary and graphics.

Please click HERE and select the match pass you require.

Normally, midweek matches are also available to watch on QPR+ in the UK & Ireland. It is the decision of the 'home' club as to whether a midweek match is made available for streaming domestically.

Blackburn, as Tuesday's home club, have decided to NOT make the game available domestically. Unfortunately, this means that the QPR+ stream will not be available in the UK. The match will also NOT be available on the Sky Sports red button.

For those curious, it's live on iFollow on Rovers site. Only took me checking in and also buying the match pass on QPR website, because I didn't feel like taking the chance at listening to QPR commentators.
