What time does QPR v Wolves start, and where can I watch it?

Two new managers looking to get their clubs up the Championship table face off at Loftus Road on Thursday evening.

Ian Holloway and Paul Lambert are both experienced managers with big hurdles to overcome at their respective new clubs.

QPR are in need of stability after a turbulent few years, with Holloway seen as the man to get the fans back on side at Loftus Road. His first two games have been contrasting; a fine win over Norwich was followed by a disappointing defeat at Ipswich on Saturday.

The visitors go into this one without a win in nine league games. They have collected just three points from an available 27, a run which has seen them drop perilously close to the bottom three; Wolves will fall into the drop zone with a defeat this evening.

The Key Battle - Karl Henry vs Dave Edwards

Henry made over 250 appearances during his successful spell at Wolves, but this evening the experienced midfielder lines up against them hoping to prolong their winless run. 

Edwards is the visitors' joint-top scorer this season with three goals and his impact will be crucial if they are to see results improve.

Last Meeting:

The spoils were shared in January's meeting at Loftus Road, with Sebastien Polter's early strike cancelled out by James Henry's second half leveller.

Wolves just about have the historical edge, with 17 wins in this fixture to QPR's 14.
