QPR will be looking to secure only their second win at the City Ground when they take on Championship promotion-chasers Nottingham Forest on Saturday (3pm).

Toni Leistner’s header saw QPR claim their first ever victory at Forest’s home when the two sides met in December 2018.

And Mark Warburton’s side will make the trip in buoyant mood after drawing 0-0 at Swansea and then coming from 2-0 down to beat Stoke City 4-2 at Loftus Road.

Boss Warburton confirmed his squad was fully fit but insisted they must take their chances to stand a chance of overcoming their seventh-placed opponents.

“We know it’s about us being clinical,” Warburton said.

“I’ve made the ‘broken record’ comment because in games like Huddersfield, Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday, we created chances and we weren’t taking them.

“You think about Cardiff and Swansea [at home] and we took them.

“Swansea away we missed big chances but then on Saturday you saw us take four and in truth – and very respectfully – we have probably missed four or five huge chances.

“The good thing for me is that we, as a team, are creating good, quality chances and it’s up to us to be clinical and get the rewards.”

Warburton managed Forest in 2017 and will be keen to get one over his former club who are just three points off the top six.

But having lost 4-0 to Forest at home in November Warburton is wary of their threats.

“They are investing wisely in the club and you can see what they are driving towards,” Warburton said.

“Forest are a good team and they are in form.

“They’re hard to break down and they counter really well. They have good quality up front with the likes of (Joe) Lolley, (Tiago) Silva, (Lewis) Grabban and (Sammy) Ameobi, so we know what we face.

“Likewise, they will be aware that we are a good team that creates chances as well.

“The 4-0 scoreline against them at home wasn’t a true reflection because of the red card after 50 minutes and what we have to do on Saturday is impose ourselves and recognise the importance of defending our goal with a real passion and look to use the football wisely.”

QPR find themselves in 16th position, 11 points adrift of the play-off places and 11 points from the bottom three.

Warburton has been clear about QPR’s ambitions for the rest of the season and will hope a positive result against Forest will see them climb the table.

“The only aim is to get as many points as we can possibly can,” Warburton added.

“That is the only aim.

“In this league, you can very quickly be drawn into a relegation fight.

“I am not saying this negatively but if you get caught four or five games, you are in trouble.

“Likewise, if you win four or five you can find yourself pushing for the play-offs.”
