Ahead of tonight's game at Loftus Road we spoke to Mike from the QPR Report to get the QPR perspective on tonight's showdown.

How have you viewed QPR's start to the season?

Disappointing. I'm beginning to think we may not finish in the 10th place I predicted pre-season!

Do you think you'll have a full strength side out on Wednesday night or will Mark Hughes use the competition to rotate the squad?

We've already got a number of injuries, so rotation will be a bit limited but I think we'll be playing a pretty strong team. I Certainly would, if I was Mark Hughes, yes you risk injuries but we really need a win for our confidence.

However if QPR lose tomorrow, while I won't be feeling great it at least means we can concentrate on survival. That being said it's wins that give you confidence.

Any fond memories of the League Cup as a QPR Fan?

Yes. Yes and Yes! Obviously winning the Cup in 1967 as a Third Division Team. (I wasn't at Wembley. But just started supporting them.)

And over the years, late 1960s and 1970s, some great Floodlit games at Loftus Road. (Back when the Cup was considered a pretty good thing to go do).

Reaching a League Cup Semi-Final Replay in 1976....A brilliant run to Wembley a Decade later, knocking out Chelsea and Liverpool (Don't talk about what happened at Wembley when we got there - versus Oxford United!) But The last 15-20 years, have been mostly a wasteland for QPR in the Cup...

What have you made of Reading's start to the season?

Pretty much as I expected. It's tough in this league, you often deserve something and don't get it. There's a bit of a question of how much support the manager gets; and whether there's any panicking in the ranks.

Any Reading players you're worried about?


Any QPR players that Reading fans should be worried about?

Well IF Cisse returns to last season's form, yes...We've also got a lot more creative players now.

Tips for travelling Royals on Wednesday night?

Wear Hoops!

Score prediction.

G-d knows. We could crush you, or we could just slump again - after the depression of deserving something from Spurs but getting nothing, anything's possible.
