- Next: Exeter - The last time QPR played Exeter was in March 1966, just days before Rodney Marsh signed for QPR! The QPR team of Alec Stock was: Springett - Langley, Hunt, Sibley, Watson - Lazarus, Keen, Collins, R. Morgan - Allen, Leach . QPR won 1-0 through Les Allen. (QPR's last visit to Exeter was in September 1965)

- Beaten but not unbowed from the trip to Leeds, City can get back on their horse straight away with a League Cup encounter at home to QPR. Paul Tisdale is now another striker light following Barry Corr's red card at Elland Road, joining Stansfield, Watson and perhaps Logan on the sidelines. This may mean a start for Craig McAllister, or Tisdale may be tempted to throw young James Norwood into the fray, the fleet-footed signing from Eastbourne Town having looked lively on Saturday.
- QPR have been something of a "soap opera" club in recent years following the takeover of the club by Formula One tycoons Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, with managers in and out amidst rumours of player selection difficulties. Jim Magilton is the latest man in the hotseat at Loftus Road, hoping to get himself back on track after his sacking by Ipswich last season. The West London side needed a late equaliser in their opener at home to Blackpool. A familiar face in the QPR line-up will be Akos Buszaky, the former Plymouth star.
- With contrasting fortunes in the last 40 years or so, QPR spending a number of years in the top flight, you have to go back to the 1965/66 season for the last time the sides met - QPR winning 1-0 at Loftus Road in March 1966 as City slipped to relegation, having drawn 0-0 at the Park the previous September.

"...[F]or the time being, Magilton believes he has enough quality up front without having to sign a replacement for Dexter Blackstock.
He said: “I have Patrick Agyemang, Rowan Vine, Heidar Helguson, Alessandro Pellicori and Adel Taarabt, so I think I’ve got enough.
“I have got a very balanced squad and, with a few additions, they could make the difference at this level
