27 September 2010 02:37
QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin is still nursing a groin problem, so Akos Buzsaky is again expected to start for the Championship leaders.Defender Bradley Orr looks close to returning to contention following a calf injury, but is not expected to feature in this game. [LNB]Millwall will be without Liam Trotter at Loftus Road. [LNB]Trotter is suspended after being sent off during the Lions' 2-1 defeat against Cardiff on Saturday. [LNB][LNB] MATCH PREVIEW Millwall manager Kenny Jackett and his assistant Joe Gallen return to Loftus Road hoping to upset their former club, whose brilliant start to the season continued with a 3-0 victory against Doncaster on Saturday. [LNB]That result maintained Rangers' 100% home record this season and stretched their lead at the top of the table to six points. They have scored 22 Championship goals - more than any other team - and have the best defensive record, with only two conceded. They have kept clean sheets in all but one of their league games so far. [LNB]Jackett was assistant boss at QPR for much of Ian Holloway's reign as manager there. And Gallen - a lifelong R's fan whose brother Kevin made over 450 appearances for the club - was youth team boss at Rangers prior to linking up with Jackett at The Den. [LNB]They can take heart from Doncaster's first-half performance against Neil Warnock's side, who were frustrated by them before taking the lead. Millwall's recent form is less encouraging. After a strong start to their campaign, the Lions have suffered three consecutive defeats.
