Rangers finished last season in 18th place after appointing former Hammarby boss Marti Cifuentes as their new head coach in October.

Albion’s last visit to Loftus Road was in April 2017 when goals from Glenn Murray and Sebastien Pocognoli earned Albion a 2-1 win.

It was their third victory in six days and sent us back to the top of the Championship. A few weeks later, we were celebrating promotion to the Premier League for the first time. Ticket information will be confirmed soon.
