QPR are hoping to have defender Jimmy Dunne back for this weekend. The centre-back has been out of action over recent times but is in line to return against West Brom on Saturday, as per West London Sport.

Wolves, who were keen on R’s boss Michael Beale, have reportedly turned their attentions back to Julen Lopetegui. The Daily Mail report that the Premier League side have revived their interest in the former Sevilla man.


Millwall striker Benik Afobe is a doubt for the clash against Birmingham tonight. He has picked up a knee problem and his manager Gary Rowett has told the Southwark News: “He just felt his knee was a little bit sore, didn’t train on Monday. We’re seeing if that settles down and assess it, but he felt a little bit uncomfortable over the weekend.”

Sky Sports pundit David Prutton thinks the Lions will lose 2-0 to the Blues and has said: “I was so impressed with Birmingham on Friday night. Some savvy loan recruitment of Hannibal Mejiri, Auston Trusty and Krystian Bielik has made such a difference to their side this season.

“Millwall typically saw a four-game winning run come to an end at troubled Huddersfield on Saturday, which just about sums up the Championship. From what I saw from the Blues, I have to back them for a home win here.”


Watford will be without attacking pair Vakoun Bayo and Samuel Kalu for their trip to Cardiff. Their boss Slaven Bilic has told the Watford Obsever: “Kalu (ankle) and Bayo (ankle/dead leg) are both struggling. They are going to travel with us and we will see.”

The Watford Observer also report that the Hornets plan to head to Alicante during the World Cup break for training. It is yet to be known whether they will play any friendlies in Spain at this stage.
