Huddersfield Town host Queens Park at the John Smith’s Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 8 February 2020; 3pm kick-off.
The Terriers head into the weekend off the back of a narrow 3-2 defeat away to third place side Fulham, a match which Danny Cowley described as ‘a rollercoaster of a game’.
Ahead of Saturday’s game, the Rangers lost 1-0 at home to Bristol City, marking three losses in a row for Mark Warburton’s side in all competitions.
In the reverse fixture in August 2019, Karlan Grant’s penalty kick was not enough to claim victory, as Grant Hall’s late header denied the Terriers all three points, the match ending 1-1.
Prior to the match, The Rangers sit in 16th in the Sky Bet Championship.
Mark Warburton’s side will be hoping to alter their away fortunes, having picked up only 16 of their 38 points whilst on the road.
QPR have had a mixed bag so far this season, with wins over Millwall, Blackburn and Preston showing that they’re a team with real threat when they’re in form.
The Rangers will also be hoping to change their current run after losses to Blackburn and Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship. Their last win was a dramatic 1-0 victory against second place side Leeds United in January.

The defender signed for QPR from Blackpool in August 2015. He made his debut five years later in a 3-0 win against Yeovil Town.

He’s started all 30 of QPR’s games so far this campaign, netting 10 goals, including two braces, in the process.
The forward joined QPR on loan from Premier League Club West Ham United ahead of the 2019/20 season. He scored on his debut as QPR recorded a season opening 2-1 victory at Stoke City. So far he’s made 28 appearances, including 19 starts, and nine goals.
