Yet another sold out away end will be making the journey down to the capital, as league football returns following the international break.
Last time out, The Black Cats hammered Southampton, 5-0 at home, in what was an extremely impressive performance, especially from the likes of Pierre Ekwah, Jack Clarke and Abdoullah Ba.
QPR struggled at the start of their season, losing 3 of their first 4 games of the season, however, they were on the end of an impressive result themselves, as last time out, they beat Middlesbrough, 0-2 away from home.
The last time the two sides met at Loftus Road ended in a 0-3 victory to Sunderland, thanks to a brace by Jack Clarke and a goal by Luke O’Nien.
Pantomime villain, Jack Colback is enjoying life in his first season at QPR as he has scored 2 goals in his first 3 appearances, and he will be hoping to continue that form going into this game.
A victory for Sunderland could mean that they will climb as high as 6th, depending on other results.
If QPR were to get all 3 points, move up as high as 8th, and leapfrog their opponents.
Timothée Pembélé is currently undergoing a personal maintenance programme alongside the club’s medical team as he looks to build match fitness.
Nazariy Rusyn’s involvement looks unlikely, as he is in need of a VISA, and he will not be allowed to play until that process is complete.
QPR 0-1 Sunderland
Scorer – Jack Clarke
