Sheffield United will look to consolidate their grip on sixth when they travel to QPR in the Championship on Friday night (7.45pm kick-off, UK time).
The Premier League’s bottom club from last season are aiming to produce an immediate bounce back, and they are currently looking in good shape to secure a ticket to the play-offs, with Paul Heckingbottom’s side occupying that final position, while they are three points ahead of seventh-placed Blackburn Rovers.
QPR though are not fading away it would seem. The Londoners were firmly in the promotion race at one point but have capitulated in recent weeks. A win on Friday for Mark Warburton’s men would move them to within three points of the play-offs, though goal difference is heavily against them.

QPR team news
Chris Willock, Rob Dickie, David Marshall and Moses Odubajo are all condemned to season-ending injuries, with the former proving a huge blow in QPR’s now-unlikely promotion bid. The ex-Benfica midfielder is currently third in the Championship’s playmaker charts, registering 11 assists, despite missing the last seven matches, so his creative invention has been a huge miss.
Sheffield United team news
The Blades have a fairly extensive casualty list which extends to Jack O’Connell, who has missed the entire season with a long-standing knee injury, Rhian Brewster, who has been out since January with a hamstring issue, veteran David McGoldrick and Jayden Bogle. Enda Stevens recently returned to the side, but Oliver McBurnie has missed the last two matches with a foot injury.
