Match Preview

New-look Rs welcome Sky Blues Wayne Routledge and Pascal Chimbonda will be added to the QPR squad for Sunday's clash with Coventry. Winger Routledge has returned to Loftus Road on loan from Newcastle while full-back Chimbonda has joined on a free after leaving Blackburn. Boss Neil Warnock has also signed West Brom striker Ishmael Miller on loan but he has a slight hamstring injury. Heidar Helguson is fit after a thigh problem and pushing to replace Rob Hulse, who has failed to score in his last seven outings, in attack. Midfielder Akos Buzsaky is still out with a knee injury but has been pencilled in for a return next month. Defender Peter Ramage (cruciate) and broken-leg victims Jamie Mackie and Patrick Agyemang are the long-term absentees. Coventry welcome back Marlon King and could possibly be boosted by the long-awaited return of Ben Turner. Striker King is back in the fold having completed a three-match suspension for the red card he received against Ipswich. Influential centre-back Turner has been out since early November with a knee injury but is due to train on Friday and manager Aidy Boothroyd has not ruled out him of being involved at Loftus Road, although a starting berth remains an outside chance. Captain Lee Carsley is currently in Sweden undergoing an Achilles operation before travelling to Germany for groin surgery and is expected to be out for three to four weeks. Fellow midfielder Sammy Clingan (knee) returned to the bench for last weekend`s goalless draw against Sheffield United following his lengthy lay-off and will again take his place in City`s squad. Otherwise, Boothroyd reports no fresh injury concerns and arranged a behind-closed-doors friendly this week to give some of his fringe players some valuable minutes on the pitch.

Match Report

Routledge puts Rangers five points clear Wayne Routledge marked his second QPR debut with a goal as the npower Championship leaders came from behind to sink Coventry. This time last year the winger left Loftus Road for Newcastle and helped guide the Magpies to promotion and the title. He looks eager to repeat the trick having rejoined Rangers on loan and got off to the perfect start by hitting the winner against the Sky Blues. Adel Taarabt had earlier added another dazzling solo effort to his growing collection to cancel out a shock opener from Coventry's Marlon King. Rangers' early-season promotion charge may have slowed down to more of a canter - this was only their third win in eight outings - but they still sit a handy five points clear of the chasing pack. Routledge set about Coventry from the off and almost set up an opening goal after 12 minutes. The winger turned Martin Cranie inside-out before crossing to Heidar Helguson, whose downward header bounced up and over the crossbar. Rangers were screaming for a penalty after 23 minutes when a bullet header from Helguson struck Cranie's arm but referee Mark Haywood was not interested. Moments later City goalkeeper Keiren Westwood was called into action to tip a fierce drive from Shaun Derry over the crossbar. Yet against the run of play the visitors opened the scoring in the 25th minute with their first attack of the game. Gary McSheffrey's ball across the face of goal was missed by Rangers defender Matt Connolly and King was left with a simple tap-in past Paddy Kenny. The hosts could have found themselves two down when Freddy Eastwood burst into the area and got the better of Connolly, but the former Southend frontman dragged his shot wide. Taarabt, the player who has had more shots than any other in the Championship this season, then took aim from 25 yards but his effort flashed past the post. But the Moroccan found his range in first-half stoppage time, jinking inside Richard Keogh before unleashing a stunning curler from the corner of the area beyond Westwood and into the net. Rangers came agonisingly close to taking the lead six minutes after half-time when a free-kick from Alejandro Faurlin beat the dive of Westwood but came back off the inside of the post. But they were not to be denied and with 11 minutes left Taarabt's lofted pass sent Routledge through and with a delightful first touch and finish he secured the three points. end M
