PREVIEW: Queens Park Rangers v Hull City

The very good point gleaned from leaders Norwich City on Tuesday evening ended the Canaries six match straight winning streak and took the Tigers within a whisker of escaping the Championship relegation zone. Only goal difference is penning Hull City in the bottom three, as Adkins' side continue to show signs of steady improvement.

The City boss (like many before him) has done a stellar job in testing circumstances, all things considered. The Allams truly are a nightmare to work with while they hastily sell the club within 24 hours. The subtle hints Adkins drops about strengthening the squad will no doubt fall on deaf ears - like all the other managers before him. Positively speaking, though, top scorer Fraizer Campbell returns after a one match ban, youngster Dan Batty could return, but Markus Henriksen, Reece Burke and Eric Lichaj need to be assessed

Home boss Steve McClaren nearly become the away boss, after the Allams apparently courted the ex-Tiger for some time to become the new manager at Hull City. Clearly he saw sense - despite a shaky start at QPR - to guide the Hoops to striking distance of the play-offs. Given there are no fresh injury concerns to trouble selection, McClaren will set about the task of trying to reverse Hull City's recent good run of form against the Londoners, that has seen just one defeat from the last nine encounters.
