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.

e're our own worst enemy. We're suicidal in defence, and we may just get slaughtered on Sunday. Other than that, I am very pleased with my team.
