QPR boss Mark Warburton is urging his team to guard against complacency when they host Huddersfield Town at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this weekend. 

The Terriers come into the game with just one win in their last 14 league games, leaving them just six points above the Championship relegation zone and one of the most out of form teams in the country.   

Meanwhile, Rangers are buzzing after two successive league wins over Bristol City and Wycombe, sitting in the top half of the table for the first time this year and hungry to keep that winning run going. 

But despite the contrasting form of the two teams ahead of the clash, Warburton believes the visitors will be more than a handful when they make the journey to south west London. 

“I think they’re in a false league position. You have to look at it and say they have a really talented squad,” the Rs boss said.  

“I look at their pace and power up top, they’ve got some very talented players and are tactically very astute with their manager Carlos [Corberan], and we have to be ready for that. 

“We have to impose ourselves on the game and have absolute respect for our opponent. 

“They’re very good on their day, but they’ll come here scrapping for their lives, they’re in a position they don’t want to be in and we have to recognise that.”

Ilias Chair grabbed his second goal in as many games in the 1-0 victory over Wycombe on Tuesday night to secure back-to-back wins for Rangers, who now sit comfortably in the nether regions of the Championship table. 

14 points from the play-offs and 12 from the relegation zone is the definition of mid-table obscurity, with QPR looking set to play their football in the second tier once again next season with just 12 games of the season left to play. 

With the non-stop nature of the football fixtures this season, Warburton has had to utilise all members of his squad to keep his players fit and healthy, and that approach has paid dividends with those recent results. 

That means he has close to a full squad to choose from for the visit of the Terriers, with Lyndon Dykes waiting to be assessed after picking up a knock in the midweek win over the Chairboys.  

And that selection headache is a welcome problem to have for the Rs boss, who admits the side is looking as strong as it has all season after recent results. 

“We’re getting a strong squad now and the balance is good, but we have to keep on pushing because this league is relentless,” Warburton said. 

“The moment your standards drop and your preparation isn’t quite right, you get hurt, so we’ve got to try and maintain those high standards. 

“[Lyndon] has reported for training and he’ll have a precautionary scan so we hope he’s OK and fingers crossed we’ll have a full squad to pick from. 

“Geoff [Cameron] had a niggle again, but being able to bring in Jordy [De Wijs], Sam Field and Chris Willock is really pleasing for us to be able to use the whole squad."
