QPR's Bothroyd expecting tough challenge from Villa

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."
