Jay Bothroyd is well aware that life for QPR will be made difficult by Aston Villa this weekend.

The R's host Villa at Loftus Road on Sunday following a great 3-0 away win at Wolves last weekend but Bothroyd knows to expect a tough showing from Alex McLeish's men.

"They're a really good side, with a good Manager in charge," he told the club's official website.

"Darren Bent is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and Gabby has started the season off well."

But Bothroyd knows playing in front of the home fans will give the QPR players a huge boost.

"Although, we're once again playing at Loftus Road, so we want to impose our game on them," he added.

"We want to make it a tough place for away teams to come.

"I've got a friend of mine who is a fan and he sends me clips every weekend of them singing, it's brilliant.

"Even when we lost 4-0 against Bolton, the fans were there until the end, no-one left the stadium early.

"It's a great feeling to know the fans are behind us 100 per-cent."
