-Jim Magilton is looking for Town to put on a performance in front of the TV cameras when Blues take on QPR.
- The 5.20pm kick-off at Loftus Road is covered live on Sky TV with Blues' record on the small screen not the best this season with away defeats at Watford, Norwich and Doncaster and a draw against Crystal Palace at Portman Road.
Town are above QPR on goal difference and will be looking to extend the run of only one defeat in eight League games and close the gap on the Play-Off places from four points.
- "We have not done well on TV this season so it would be nice to put that right and we go to QPR buoyed by the win against Forest on Wednesday," Jim told the Club website.
"I've always liked going to Loftus Road. It's a tight ground with the fans close to the pitch and that makes for a great atmosphere. There is always a bit of banter between the players and the supporters as well.
"They are in the same position as us, on the fringes of the Play-Offs and players being players, they will be aware of the results earlier in the afternoon and how that can affect things in the table but the focus from us will be on going there and getting the three points.
"I like the way QPR play. They have a lot of width and operate with a 433 or 451 system. It's a more European style and I'd probably be 'hung' if I did that at home!
"They have a good manager in Paulo Sousa. I had the pleasure of playing against him several times and he was an outstanding player. I'm sure if he takes that wonderful talent into management he will be a success."
Sousa replaced Iain Dowie in the Rangers' hot seat and Jim admits he was disappointed to see his close friend and former Northern Ireland international team-mate leave Loftus Road.
"I was sorry to see Iain go. He's an outstanding manager and an outstanding man and I'm not sure he was treated particularly fairly," adds Jim.
"He didn't get any time in the job but that's football nowadays. Everyone wants instant success and there is a pretty low tolerance level, driven on by the media attention but it's part of the game and we have to deal with it whether we like it or not."
Town will give a late fitness test to Gareth McAuley who picked up a calf injury in the win over Forest. Kevin Lisbie is back in the squad after missing the Forest game with a back injury but Danny Haynes misses out with a hamstring problem.
Heidar Helguson, Sam Di Carmine and 'keeper Radek Cerny have recovered from injury for Rangers, who are unbeaten in nine League games, while Lee Cook has completed a ban.
They will also have Jordi Lopez available after he joined the club in a short team deal this week but Akos Buzsaky, Patrick Agyemang and Martin Rowlands will all miss out.
Kick-off at Loftus Road is 5.20pm with live commentary on Ipswich World. Ipswich
