FA Cup replay: West Brom v QPR preview
A look ahead to tonight's FA Cup Third Round replay at the Hawthornes
Tuesday 15 January 2013
QPR boss Harry Redknapp will be hoping to continue his side’s mini-revival, having gone the last three games unbeaten. Although the FA Cup will not be Ranger's top priority, they will be hoping to keep the momentum ahead of their on-going relegation battle.
His opposition West Brom are currently in a dismal run of form that has seen the Baggies win just two of their last 10 games in all competitions. Boss Steve Clarke could see the cup as a potential route into Europe after slipping out of the European qualifying places earlier this month.
This will be the third time these two sides will have played against each other in less than three weeks. Roman Lukaku will be looking to add to his recent record of four goals in six games coming into this fixture.
