Queens Park Rangers face another stern test of their good form in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday when they make the long trip to Blackburn Rovers.

Rs are unbeaten in their last five in the league, and have won their last three matches without conceding a goal.

Away to Rovers, though, they will come up against one of the division’s most creative players in Bradley Dack.

Already this season, the former Gillingham man has six goals from midfield and has also provided two assists.

QPR have their own creative force, with 20-year-old Ebere Eze having netted three goals in addition to one assist in 15 league outings this term.

And the young forward is happy to have been able to help the west Londoners in the early part of the campaign.

“My job is to create and to score. If I create, I’m creating. If I score, I’m scoring,” Eze told the club website.

“I’m just happy to do either of them and to help get the team the win, which is most important.”

Despite being just 20, Eze has been a key player for QPR this term and his displays have helped the Loftus Road club on their recent unbeaten run.

The Rs’ recent form has taken them to within touching distance of the play-offs and a win at Ewood Park on Saturday could take them into the top six.

It has been a remarkable recovery for the Rs, who lost their first four league games under new manager Steve McClaren.

But Eze is delighted the west Londoners have been able to turn things around, acknowledging it would always take time to adapt to a new style of play.

“It’s been a good start to the season for us apart from those first four games,” added the youngster.

“We have come a long way since then and grown into our style of play.”

Eze himself has been one of the leading lights for QPR this term, and the attacker is pleased with his own recent form.

“With the team-mates I have and the support I am getting from the fans, they give me confidence to do what I want to do and the freedom to play how I like to play which is the most important thing,” he said.

Eze will hope to give the travelling QPR fans more reason to cheer at Blackburn this Saturday.
