QPR faces the possibility of missing a key defender as they head to Huddersfield Town in the Championship this weekend. QPR, seeking their third away victory of the season, travels north to take on Huddersfield Town.
Gareth Ainsworth’s team has secured wins against Cardiff City and Middlesbrough this season on the road, but they are yet to clinch a victory at home and currently sit in the 22nd position in the Championship table.
While the R’s injury list is not extensive, there are concerns that Steve Cook might be unavailable this weekend, having missed their last match against Blackburn Rovers due to a hamstring injury. In addition, Morgan Fox will definitely miss the game as he underwent minor knee surgery after sustaining an injury against Coventry City last month.
On a positive note, Reggie Cannon, a new signing, is expected to make his debut after participating in a development side game for QPR this week.
Huddersfield, currently in 19th place, has not won in their last four games under the new manager, Darren Moore. However, they have managed draws against teams like Ipswich Town and Coventry City since Moore’s arrival last month.
This matchup between QPR and Huddersfield presents an opportunity for both teams. Huddersfield’s performance this season has been underwhelming, and given QPR’s better performance on the road compared to at home, the R’s have a chance to earn some points. On the other hand, Moore views this as an opportunity to secure his first win as Town boss.
The absence of Fox and the potential absence of Cook is a significant setback for Ainsworth, especially considering Cook’s experience and leadership qualities. Nevertheless, the possible inclusion of Reggie Cannon is a positive development, and Ainsworth might even consider starting the USA international.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 3pm on Saturday.
