Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton is excited to return to competitive action in front of the R’s faithful as they begin the new Championship season with a London derby. 

The R’s will welcome rivals Millwall to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday as they look to get off to a strong start and build on their good form at the back end of last season. 

Fans will be back in numbers after playing the entire season behind closed doors last term due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. 

Warburton said: “Hopefully we can have a more normal season in front of fans. 

“These are genuine football people and what we have to do is produce the sort of football that they enjoy watching.”
