QPR's Bothroyd expecting tough challenge from Villa
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."
