- QUEENS PARK Rangers are monitoring Darius Henderson's situation at Bramall Lane, The Star can reveal.

- Sources close to the 28-year-old, who commanded a £2 million fee when he joined Kevin Blackwell's side from Watford in 2008, have confirmed he features on a list of possible targets at Loftus Road.
- Henderson has netted 19 times in 72 appearances since leaving Hertfordshire and is among a number of United players expected to attract interest from elsewhere before the transfer window re-opens.
- Blackwell is expected to launch a major recruitment drive of his own shortly.
- Talks aimed at persuading Nick Montgomery and Gary Naysmith to pen new deals are on-going..." South Yorkshire Star

- The Octavia Foundation has put together a three-year project that seeks to make the history of QPR the focus for a range of activities that will involve a large number of people of all ages and from all sections of our local communities.
- The project, which could eventually see a QPR museum take shape, has a bid attached to it, and the Club needs to demonstrate research results to unlock this by way of fans completing a survey.

Wales online QUEENS Park Rangers fans are plotting to ruin Cardiff’s big day out at Wembley on Saturday.

Supporters of the West London club have taken to message boards and forums to discuss a revenge attack on the Cardiff team hotel after their players were infamously disturbed by a fire alarm in the middle of the night in 2003.

On that occasion, the Bluebirds beat QPR 1-0 in extra time in the Division Two play-off final, which was held at the Millennium Stadium while the new Wembley stadium was being built.

Just hours before kick-off, the QPR squad’s preparations had been disrupted when they were awoken by an early-morning fire alarm at the Celtic Manor Hotel, near Newport, pictured, where they were staying.

The alarm went off at 3am and squad members were forced to leave their rooms. More than 200 fellow guests were evacuated while the cause was investigated.

Neil MacNamara, 39, of Nantgarw – a former Cardiff City security guard – was charged at the time with criminal damage and making a false and malicious fire call.

Now, with Cardiff having reached another end-of-season showpiece, QPR fans are threatening to use the opportunity to dish out payback on message boards and forums.

TheOnlyRangerInTheVillage said: “I am doing it, and leaving a QPR scarf, just to let them know who it was that kept them awake all night!”

Cook Pass said: “Get there and set off that fire alarm.

“Do it for Olly (Blackpool and former QPR manager Ian Holloway). Do it for Blackpool. Do it for Rangers. Do it for Yourselves”

Rtone said: “If anyone can tell me where they are staying, I will do it, and if I end up in court, I will be a national hero, and quite rightly so.”

Rodney Trotter said: “How do we find out where they are staying?”

The location of the Cardiff City team hotel ahead of Saturday’s game is not known and is likely to remain a tightly-guarded secret. Wales onLine
