Live on Sky Sports: Queens Park Rangers v Nottingham Forest

11 September 2015

This weekend's Saturday lunchtime clash in the Sky Bet Championship pits Queens Park Rangers against Nottingham Forest, with the match kicking-off at 12:30pm live on Sky Sports.

The international break last weekend may not have come at the best time for QPR, who have found some early-season form since their opening-day loss at London rivals Charlton Athletic.

Four games and 10 points later, Chris Ramsey's charges are sitting fourth in the division, whereas their weekend opponents have averaged just one point per game so far this term and currently lie 16th.

Forest's sole victory this campaign came at home to Rotherham United, which was their first three-point haul since 18th March –  which, incidentally, also came against the Millers at the City Ground.

In the League, this fixture hasn't produced an away win in the past 14 outings, which doesn't bode well for Dougie Freedman's side.

The Scot hasn't seen his troops win on the road since a 3-0 success at Reading on the last day of February, although Forest did break the travelling trend when winning 3-0 at Loftus Road in a 2005 FA Cup clash.

Debut day?

Nottingham Forest have bolstered their ranks over the international break with the loan signings of Jonny Williams and Chris O'Grady, from Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively.

They have also secured the services of Benfica forward Nelson Oliveira and Lille winger Ryan Mendes on loan until the end of the season.
