Karl Robinson and the Dons have fond memories of Loftus Road but the Liverpudlian is expecting Saturday’s visit to be a difficult one.
Now, though, the two sides go head-to-head as equals in an important Sky Bet Championship fixture for both clubs and Robinson says he and his group are looking forward to the challenge.
“This is the most difficult match we will have had against QPR,” the Dons boss said. “We’ve always played QPR as a League 1 side against a Premier League team and this time we’re going in as equals, which brings with it different pressures.
“They’ve got a wealth of a talent and on any given day, they can beat anybody. Chris is an unbelievable football person and is someone I have known and respected for many years.”
He continued: “We know we’re going to have to bring our ‘a-game’ but we’re looking forward to the afternoon.”
