QPR host West Brom in the EFL Championship on Saturday, looking to make it three wins in a row for the second time this season.

They beat both Bristol City and Birmingham City away from home with an identical 2-1 scoreline in their last two outings.

Later on Saturday, the Hoops saw off Rotherham 8-7 on penalties in the third round of the FA Cup after the sides played out a 1-1 draw.

The Baggies are looking to end a three-game winless run in the league, while also bowing out of the FA Cup following a 2-1 home loss to Brighton last weekend.
