Photos: What happened the last time QPR played West Brom

QPR travel to the Hawthorns this weekend looking to stake a claim for Premier League survival.

The R’s sit in the relegation places with eight games left, and Chris Ramsey has a task on his hands to keep the West London club in the top flight.

West Brom on the other hand are all-but secure. Tony Pulis has revitalised the squad since his appointment at the Hawthorns, and he is preparing to build for next season’s push up the table.

The fixture this weekend is much more vital to QPR than West Brom, with the points needed to climb out the bottom three, although the Midlands club will not bow down - as they look to guarantee their top flight status.

The last time these two teams met, back in December, Alan Irvine was still in charge of West Brom and Harry Redknapp was leading out QPR. The game ended 3-2 to the West Londoners at Loftus Road, with the visitors going 2-0 up - only for Charlie Austin to down them with his first Premier League hat-trick.

Both managers have changed since that day, as well as the club’s fortunes, and we take a look at some of the highlights from that afternoon in December.
