Blackstock Prefers a Partner...Gavin Mahon's Perspective...Buszaky's Hungarian Return and Ex-QPR Paul Murray

London Informer/Paul Warburton - Blackstock: I prefer to hunt in a pair
Dexter Blackstock wants to keep a 4-4-2 formation but isn’t sure that would end QPR’s mini-slump in form.
Rangers have taken only one from a possible 12 Championship points, and apart from cashing in on a rebound against Blackpool two weeks ago for a 1-1 draw, the striker has also failed to find the net in the last four games.
Blackstock and co had to endure another barren Saturday in the last outing against Birmingham - their third in a row – and the forward is praying for a turnaround in fortunes.
At St Andrews, Patrick Agyemang and he started together, but Blackstock was still left scratching his head as to why they came back from the midlands with a 1-0 defeat.
He said: “Would I prefer to hunt in a pair? Yes. Whether it’s the best formation for the team I don’t know, but any formation would be good if we were getting the results.
“It’s been a mixture of things that have gone wrong – and we’ve not been getting the rub of the green in the last two games.
“So now we have a test, and the game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday will be a hard match.” London Informer

Eurosport - 60 seconds with Gavin Mahon (Football-related Excerpts)
Eurosport-Yahoo grilled Queens Park Rangers' hardman midfielder Gavin Mahon on a series of important issues, such as why he hates Finland.

Who is your sporting hero?
I have to say Steven Gerrard. Every player looks up to him. He's just got better and better and he's been so successful....

Who is the best player you have ever played with?
When I played with Jermaine Pennant at Watford, you'd give him the ball and he'd do things with it, just go past people.

What is your least favourite away ground?

Rotherham's old ground Millmoor was poor. The pitch was bad and the changing rooms were separated by a thin wall so you could hear the other manager's team talk from next door! Welling United's was bad in non-league, you'd get changed with only plywood between you and you had to share toilets - you'd go before the match and see their centre-half on his way out! Eurosport

"...Sandor Torghelle and Roland Juhasz headed the Magyars to victory, and coach Erwin Koeman would also have been pleased with the return to form of QPR's Akos Buszaky who provided the assist for Juhasz..." Goal.com

Shropshire Star - [Paul] Murray Hits Comeback Trail
Key midfielder Paul Murray has hit the comeback trail by returning to full training with Shrewsbury Town.
The 32-year-old, whose last act in a Town shirt was to score a late winner at Exeter in the 1-0 League Two triumph on August 16, has spent almost two months on the sidelines with an Achilles problem.
But the former QPR, Carlisle and Gretna man has been involved in training with his team-mates since Friday, and was pencilled in to play some part in a behind-close-doors friendly against Crewe today." Shropshire Star
