Jason Lowe has revealed his immense pride at captaining his boyhood club.
The versatile Rover, who has been with the club since the age since the age of 12, has worn the armband since being given the captaincy at the start of this season.
"It has been a proud moment for me and my family," said Lowe. "I haven't changed anything I do on a daily basis, but obviously having been at the club for so long, to lead the lads out every week is a real honour for me.
"I've been here a long time, here since a young boy and everybody knows I love the place.
"I'd do anything to get it right back in the top league and hopefully we can get those days back sooner rather than later.
Lowe his debut for Rovers against today's opponents in January 2011, playing the full match as they defeated the Hoops 1-0 in an FA Cup encounter. And the 25-year-old would love nothing better than to see Rovers get their first win of the season this afternoon.
He added: "One thing I know for sure is that the lads are working ever so hard to try and turn it around, and hopefully for the fans that are coming down to QPR we can send them home smiling.
"They'll be very organised, they are the home team and I think it will be a very tough game, every away game is.
"We just need to make sure we prepare going down there, stick to the game plan, back each other up, work as hard as we can and score more goals than them."
