"Away form now puts emphasis on winning at home"

Manager looks ahead to a midweek encounter with Steve McClaren's QPR on Tuesday...

1 October 2018

Paul Clement is preparing for the visit of QPR - the first team he faced as Royals boss at Madejski Stadium back in March last season! And three points would be just as welcome tomorrow night as they were towards the back end of last season.

"It seems like a long time ago, that Friday night game...1-0. Sone Aluko with a fantastic goal from his left foot that night," Clement recalled. "It would certainly be nice to have another one of those!"

But a firecracker of a winner or a tap in from close range - the Royals boss has his sights set on three points at home and backing up Saturday's impressive display at Griffin Park with a home performance our fans can be proud of.

"Our fans were unbelievable at Brentford - it was great to see them really backing their side! I saw that they were proud of their side at the weekend.

"They were absoutely fantastic. 1,600 or so people, they packed that end - they had big smiles on their faces. We were disappointed we didn’t get all three points for them in the end. But they were a really big help."

And now we'll need them again at home!

"Our form away from home is good. So it puts that emphasis back on your performances at home. To get all three points.

"QPR will be another challenge. Another hard game in this division. They have been a bit up and down so far this season, losing at Swansea on Saturday but - after a couple of bad results at the start of the season - they have now shown they are a decent side.

"They've got some good front players and I’m looking forward to coming up against them on Tuersday night."


"We wanted more!"

We have been handed Wednesday night fixtures so far this season in the league but this week the turnaround is even quicker as Steve McClaren's men come to RG2 for a Tuesday night encounter.

"It is a quick turnaround. But it's enough time to be prepared. We have enough professionals at the club to prepare these players well for Tuesday night.

"We'll get the recovery in first of all and then look at QPR of course. They’ve put together some good results of late and it will be a difficult game for sure.

"But if we keep playing with that kind of passion and enthusiasm that we showed at Griffin Park, we’ll get good results this season.

"I think we’ve turned a corner, but you’ve got to keep it going. Because it can soon go back in the other direction. We took a backward stepp after our win at Preston last month - so we’ve got to make sure we keep taking forward steps.

"We want to build on some of the stuff we did well on at the weekend and in the home win against Hull. Everyone can see an improvement I think, simply in the sheer physical effort and passion put into the performances.

"But we’re always going to look to improve, game on game. And that wil be the case right until the end of the season."
