Barnsley entertain QPR at Oakwell hoping to secure back to back Championship home wins.

Reds boss Paul Heckingbottom has no fresh injury worries and is expected to name the same team that triumphed over Derby at the weekend.

Striker Sam Winnall is still out with a hamstring injury.

QPR will be without defender Joel Lynch who has an abdomen injury. Midfielder Ben Gladwin is a doubt after sustaining an ankle injury in the 2 – 0 win at Cardiff.

Jamie Mackie and summer signing Ariel Broysiuk are side-lined with ankle injuries.

The reds have lost their last three home games against QPR. They last recorded a victory in February 2009. Goals from Daniel Bogdanovic and Anderson De Silva secured a 2 – 1 victory.

In total, the reds have lost their last six games to QPR with Rangers scoring 16 goals in the process.

Barnsley skipper Conor Hourihane has assisted in both of the reds league games so far this season.

QPR have won their opening two league games. The last time they won their opening three games was in the 2010-11 season which saw them promoted to the Premier League.

Reds fans lets have your score predictions for this one. I have a good feeling after the performance against Derby and feel that we can get some points from this one.

However, as I predicted that we would lose to Derby I am going to do the same again and my prediction is 2 – 1 to QPR.
