Queens Park Rangers stopper Alex Smithies has called on a "full house" at Loftus Road tonight to help him and his team-mates avoid defeat to high-flyers Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Hoops return to their home ground after back-to-back defeats on the road, following an impressive run of form previously.
Smithies, who was pretty much a spectator in the second half on Tuesday at Aston Villa, has called on the Rangers fans to sell out Loftus Road to help the side for the live televised clash under the lights.
"It's going to be a tough game against Brighton, it always is," he told Get West London.
"After a couple of away games we have ended up with nothing but we're back at home with our fans behind us.
"We can take confidence from Tuesday night even though we ended up with nothing, I felt were played excellently, so we'll take the confidence and look forward to the game.
"Of course we don't want a third defeat in a row, the two away games have been disappointing, but we'll go back to our home ground where we've put together a good run there.
"I'm hoping it's a full house at Loftus Road, the fans were fantastic away at Villa and I think they can see what we're trying to do.
"I think they appreciated the effort the lads put in, so I'm sure the fans will be there in numbers on Friday night for an excellent occasion and we'll look to win the game."
