Queens Park Rangers lost for the third time in the last five games on Tuesday night, as they fell to a 1-0 loss at Derby County - and former R's star Trevor Sinclair admitted the result was disappointing.
Chris Ramsey is coming under increasing pressure at Loftus Road, with QPR sat in mid-table after an inconsistent start to the season following their relegation from the Premier League.
The QPR boss won't be feeling any more comfortable with his position after suffering another defeat, this time with a 1-0 reverse at Derby County.
Andreas Weimann's second half goal consigned Rangers to another defeat, and James Perch's sending off summed up a torrid night for the R's.
After the game, ex-QPR star Trevor Sinclair gave his views on the game via his Twitter account, branding the result 'disappointing' before calling for his former club to put it right against Preston on Saturday.
Having seen QPR in action at the iPro Stadium, Sinclair claimed that the first half was a fairly even contest, but that the R's need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
The R's go up against a Preston side who have gone five games without even conceding a goal, with Simon Grayson's men proving to be solid if unspectacular outfit.
It's a good opportunity for QPR to get back to winning ways, but if they fail to win the game, the pressure will once again mount on manager Ramsey, who desperately needs a run of positive results, just as former Loftus Road hero Sinclair says.
