QPR boss Holloway considering tactical change against Derby

QPR: Ian Holloway
Ian Holloway is considering changes because of how Derby play

QPR manager Ian Holloway has hinted at a possible tactical change for his side’s game against Derby County.

Rangers will be looking to make amends for a dismal performance last time out at Loftus Road, where they were recently thrashed 5-2 by Nottingham Forest.

Holloway told QPR’s website: “They’re one of the top teams in this division who play the 4-2-3-1 – and we haven’t beaten anyone who does that. So we’ve been thinking about how we’re going to beat them on Tuesday night.

“We’ve had a high tempo and high press in a lot of our home games this season – we didn’t last time out. It’s up to us to try and find the right balance.

“We need to get across to our opponents’ full-backs and that’s sometimes been a problem for us when we’ve been playing with a 3-5-2.

“Derby haven’t been winning of late, so we need to get about them as best we can. That’s what our fans will want to see.”

Rangers are hopeful Joel Lynch will return to the squad for Tuesday’s game.

And Jamie Mackie is training with the first-team squad again as part of his comeback from injury.
