Maintain that winning feeling

7 January 2017

Owen Coyle hopes Rovers can maintain that winning feeling when they take on Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The Lancastrians go into the Emirates FA Cup match at Loftus Road in good heart following their fine 1-0 win over Newcastle United last time out, with the Rovers boss keen to make it into the hat for the fourth round.

"When you enjoy cup runs then it is a good feeling because obviously it carries on that momentum, when you are winning games there is nothing better than that in football," said Coyle.

"To do that you've got to earn the right and that is what we are going to have to do. We'll have to go there knowing that we are playing against a good team, a team that will be full of confidence with a home backing.

"But we've been here before and we just need to make sure that we are ready to give our best and hopefully we can go on that cup run that we all want."

The two sides shared the points when they met in the league at Loftus Road earlier this season as Sam Gallagher's header cancelled out Tjaronn Chery's earlier free-kick.

"We drew there earlier in the season when we felt we could have won the game so I think we go there in good heart," added the Rovers boss.

"Queens Park Rangers are in good form having picked up a couple of good results, so I think it will be two teams going all out to win the game."

Tickets for this afternoon's match will be on sale at Loftus Road, cash only from the away turnstiles. Matchday prices are £15 for Adults, £10 for Seniors and 18-21 year-olds, and £5 for Under-18s.
