As the crow flies, less than 40 miles separates us from Queens Park Rangers – one of our more local encounters in the league this season. Another battle with our fellow hoop-wearing rivals.
And going into the game, 12 points and 13 places divide the sides – the Royals still among the front runners, and Rangers just outside the bottom quarter.
Not that that necessarily counts for anything, going into any given Saturday. This is one of the proverbial ‘no easy games’ against a QPR side packed with quality, as well as a limited-capacity home crowd on their side. We’ll have to bounce back from defeat last time out and earn whatever we get.
There’s no TV coverage of this one whatsoever, so the only place to watch it is on iFollow.

It's been a fairly lukewarm start to the new campaign for Mark Warburton's side - just four wins from 17 matches to date, and just a single point from the past four outings.
So it hasn't been the most rambunctious start to their sixth season in this division since relegation from the Premier League in 2015, but in a concertinaed table, there's plenty of scope for some upward movement.
Two of Rangers' four wins have been 3-2 victories - their win over Cardiff at the end of October took a stoppage-time strike by Dominic Ball to snatch the points.
The game will be officiated by Tony Harrington - the first time that he's taken charge of a game featuring either of these sides so far this season.
He refereed two Royals outings last year - both of which ended in 2-1 wins against Huddersfield and Millwall - as well as QPR's 3-2 away win in Hull.
Daniel Leach and Mark Pottage are the assistants, while Gavin Ward is fourth official.
