QPR v Albion match preview

19 February 2019

Albion can make it eight away victories out of nine in the Sky Bet Championship as they head to Loftus Road to face Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday, February 19 (ko 7.45pm).

The opposition

Queens Park Rangers sit in 18th place in the Sky Bet Championship. They are managed by Steve McClaren, who took charge in May 2018.

The Rs are currently struggling for form, picking up one point from their last seven league games.

Last time out

Our last meeting was in August, as Albion convincingly ran out 7-1 winners at The Hawthorns.

The scores were level at half-time, with Matt Phillips breaking the deadlock for Albion only for Joel Lynch to equalise five minutes later.

However, the Baggies were rampant in the second half. Phillips grabbed a second, Jay Rodriguez scored a double while Kieran Gibbs, Dwight Gayle and Hal Robson-Kanu all contributed to the scoresheet.

Stats

Albion

• The Baggies have won seven of their last eight away games.
• Albion have kept four consecutive clean sheets in their last four away games in all competitions.
• Of the clubs in the division to have had one manager this season, Albion have used the most players, with 29 featuring for the Baggies in this campaign.

Opposition

• The Rs have lost their last five league games.
• QPR have won seven of their 15 home league games this season.
• Last time out, QPR lost 1-0 to Watford in their FA Cup fifth-round tie at Loftus Road on Friday night.

From the archive

Here are the highlights from Albion's Boxing Day win at Loftus Road in December 2012.

Chris Brunt put the Baggies ahead before Djibril Cisse levelled the scoring for the Rs. However, Albion would find a winner as Rob Green fumbled a loose ball into the back of the net.

Head to head

Albion come out on top in the head-to-head record.

Of the 45 matches that have been played, the Baggies have triumphed 19 times, there have been 10 draws and QPR have won on 16 occasions.

Man in the middle

The referee is John Brooks, who has refereed one Albion game this season as the Baggies lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough.

He will be assisted by Adam Crysell and Sam Lewis, with Tim Robinson as the fourth official.

Match Reports

QPR 2 Albion 3

19 February 2019

Jake Livermore scored a dramatic 94th-minute winner as Albion claimed a last-gasp 3-2 triumph over QPR to record an eighth victory in their last nine away matches in the Sky Bet Championship.

Livermore pounced in injury time to convert Mason Holgate's low cross from close range and seal all three points in thrilling style, sparking celebratory scenes in front of Albion's travelling faithful.

The winner capped a spell of late pressure from the visitors having twice been pegged back by the R's at Loftus Road.

Jefferson Montero, making his first start for the club, bagged his maiden goal after just five minutes, although Luke Freeman levelled for the hosts before the break.

Fellow January loan signing Jacob Murphy restored Albion's advantage just after the hour mark with a well-taken low finish.

Yet substitute Tomer Hemed converted a 75th-minute penalty to seemingly ensure the spoils were shared in west London before Livermore popped up with his first goal of the season to secure victory.

The triumph extends in-form Albion's stunning away record since early November, with promotion rivals Sheffield United next up on Saturday at The Hawthorns.

Albion showed three changes from Saturday's derby victory at Aston Villa, Montero, Sam Field and Stefan Johansen recalled.

Matt Phillips also made his eagerly-awaited return from injury to take his place on the bench.

And it was the visitors who got off to a dream start.

Mason Holgate and Johansen worked well down the right to set up Murphy, whose shot was cleared off the line and Montero was on hand to convert the rebound from 12 yards.

The Baggies were in control and passing it around confidently as they looked to work an opening, although clear-cut chances were few and far between after the early opener.

And it was the R's who levelled with their first shot on target in the 35th minute.

Johansen was caught in possession in a central area 30 yards out and the ball broke to Nahki Wells, who fed Freeman and he drilled home.

QPR goalkeeper Joe Lumley produced a super save to deny Kieran Gibbs in the 42nd minute as the scores were level heading into the half-time interval.

Wells and Pawel Wszolek sent efforts narrowly off target at the start of the second half.

Hegazi made a fantastic last-ditch challenge to block from Wells, before the Baggies retook the lead almost immediately at the other end.

Murphy collected Joel Lynch's poor headed clearance, skipped past his marker on the edge of the penalty area and drilled a low effort beyond Lumley and into the far corner.

However, the hosts drew themselves level once 15 minutes from time when Craig Dawson was adjudged to have upended R's frontman Hemed in the area, and he picked himself up to convert the resulting spot-kick.

Both sides had chances to claim all three points - Murphy for Albion and sub Ebere Eze for QPR, twice each - with Phillips stepping off the bench for the final 10 minutes and himself going close.

Yet it was Livermore who had the final say deep into injury time to send home happy the 1,492 travelling Baggies supporters.

Albion: Johnstone, Holgate, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs, Livermore (c), Field (Phillips 81), Johansen (Barry 65), Murphy, Rodriguez, Montero (Harper 57).

Subs: Bond, Adarabioyo, Bartley, Edwards.
