QPR Away to Ian Holloway's Plymouth

20th placed QPR travel this Saturday to 7th-placed Plymouth (managed by former QPR Manager, Ian Holloway, who was finally "released" from his Gardening Leave in the summer.) A win for Plymouth could leave QPR in the bottom 3. A QPR win probably shoots them up to mid-table.

QPR's coaches, Gary Penrice and Tim Breaker who were also plaed on gardening leave, at the same time as Holloway, were last week removed from the QPR website list of coaches. And Holloway announced August 24th that they would be coming to Plymouth, subject to finalizing with QPR Chairman Paladini. As of this date, there has been no official announcement or news report that they had actually arrived at Plymouth.

Plymouth's squad includes, Barry Hayles, who was on several occasions linked to Holloway when he was at QPR.

The two teams of course, won promotion together, three seasons ago (Plymouth as Champions). When QPR played Plymouth last season: They drew 1-1 at Loftus Road in October at then lost 3-1 at Plymouth in November.

Waddock hopeful~over Hoops pair
QPR manager Gary Waddock is hoping Martin Rowlands and Gareth Ainsworth can return to first-team contention ahead of the trip to Plymouth.
Rowlands has been troubled by a calf injury and Ainsworth sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Ahead of Saturday's clash at Home Park, Waddock told the club's official website: "Hopefully we'll have Rowlands back in for training on Monday and we'll see how Gareth is, so slowly but surely everybody's coming back into the group.
"I'll soon have competition for places, which I keep saying is healthy for the club.
"Everybody's getting fit, which is great, and it'll give me a nice problem picking the 11 to go down to Plymouth." QPR Team News
