Nottingham Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi will be hoping his side will have forgotten all about their 4-1 home playoff disaster defeat last season.
The ‘Tricky Trees’ make the trip to West London to face QPR at Loftus Road looking to put that playoff disaster behind them.
Where & When is the QPR v Birmingham being played?
The match is being played at QPR’s Loftus Road Ground, with the Kickoff time at 3PM on Saturday 12th September
QPR finished in a disappointing 13th place last season in the Championship and once again manager Mark Warburton will attempt to work on a shoe string budget and put his confidence in his young side.
The loss of star man Eberechi Eze will have been a blow to the Hoops, who left for neighbors Crystal Palace in a £16m deal.
Tom Carroll has arrived from Swansea City on a free transfer, a player who experienced the Premier League only a few seasons ago, while defender Grant hall has moved to Middlesbrough.
Nottingham Forest will give debuts to midfielder Fouad Bachirou who arrived from Malmo, while Luke Freeman loaned from from Sheffield Utd should also feature.
Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman comments :
This should be a tough opener for Mark Warburton’s QPR side who will be looking for a quick start. Sabri Lamouchi will be hoping his side don’t suffer a playoff hangover but the 7/5 on the away win, when we consider the additions made to the Forest squad should see them take all three points back to the City Ground.
This one kicks off at 15:00.
