The Sierra Leone International Osman Kakay has been pivotal under new Queens Park Rangers boss Gareth Ainsworth.

Ainsworth again named the left-back to his starting eleven for Watford on Saturday afternoon at Vicarage Road Stadium.

Key Stats 

Queens Park Rangers are looking to complete a league double over Watford for the first time since the 1986/87 top-flight campaign, following a 3-2 win in the reverse fixture.

Both Watford and QPR have scored in each of their last four league meetings – only in February 1929 (seven games), May 1963 (five games) and December 2007 (five games) have there been longer such runs in this fixture in the Football League.

The Rs are winless in their last nine league games at Loftus Road, losing each of their previous three and conceding 19 goals during that run (2.1 per game).

Chris Wilder, Watford Head Coach:

“If we can escape the traps quickly on Saturday, that’ll be great. I believe we’re taking about 3,000 supporters, and they’ll expect a performance just as much as I will.”

Gareth Ainsworth, Queens Park Rangers Head Coach:

“Watford is always a tough test. Chris Wilder is in charge now, and we have to be adaptable.

“I’ve had many battles with Chris over the years. He’s a fantastic manager who has proved it in the Premier League.

“I’m sure it will be another battle on Saturday.”

Last Six:

August 2022: Watford 2-3 QPR (Championship)
February 2021: Watford 1-2 QPR (Championship)
November 2020: QPR 1-1 Watford (Championship)
February 2019: QPR 0-1 Watford (FA Cup)
April 2014: QPR 2-1 Watford (Championship)
December 2013: Watford 0-0 QPR (Championship)
