- Martin Rowlands is looking forward to QPR's fourth big Cup-tie in two years after the Carling Cup draw pitted the R's against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Third Round fixture will be played week commencing 21st September, and the R's skipper told www.qpr.co.uk: "I'm absolutely delighted with the draw.
- "We've been really fortunate over the last couple of years.
- "We had Chelsea away in the FA Cup in 2007/8, and last season we were away to Aston Villa in the Third Round of the Carling Cup and Manchester United in the Fourth Round.
- "We can't complain, can we?"
- Rowlands hasn't featured since the opening day draw at Blackpool owing to an ankle injury, but he expects to be fighting fit for the trip to the Bridge.
- "Hopefully I'll be available for the Peterborough match after the international break, so I definitely expect to be ready for Chelsea," he said.
- And the 30-year-old midfielder insists the R's will travel to the home of the Blues without fear.
- "We've got nothing to be afraid of," he added.
- "We lost narrowly there in the FA Cup, and even against Manchester United we only lost to a late penalty, while we beat Villa on their patch.
- "And I firmly believe the squad we have now is stronger than the one we took to the Bridge last time.
- "Obviously it is going to be a very tough match for us, but we'll go there with confidence."
- Ticket details for this fixture will be announced next week. Priority will be given to Season Ticket Holders and Members.
