Charlie Austin: Key player for QPR

Charlie Austin: Key player for QPR

The first leg of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final between Wigan and QPR was dire.

There was little drama and virtually no chances in the 90 minutes and I can't see it being vastly different at Loftus Road.

But Rangers have had a wonderful home record this term, losing just twice, and I fancy them to edge the second leg.

Key to their 15 home wins was a brilliant defensive record - they conceded just 18 goals in 23 - as well as the goals of star striker Charlie Austin.

The former Burnley hitman scored 12 of his 18 goals at Loftus Road and without his form Rangers might not have even made the top six as their next highest scorer is Ravel Morrison with just six.

Harry Redknapp's men will have to come out of their shells from the first leg and with Wigan's side looking a little weary from all of the FA Cup and Europa League exertions this term the home win and Austin scoring double looks the value at 11/5.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
