Premier League: Wigan v QPR match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at the DW Stadium
Friday 07 December 2012
QPR are still awaiting their first win of the season after the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa in Harry Redknapp's first home game in charge last weekend.
With Wigan without the suspended Maynor Figueroa and Gary Caldwell the R's will see this as the ideal opportunity to pick up maximum points and collect their first away win in over a year - the last came against Stoke in a 3-2 win last November.
Following their 3-0 defeat to Newcastle on Monday night the Latics lie in 16th place, just two points above the bottom three, and will see the game against Rangers as an ideal opportunity to get back to winning ways.
