Dexter Blackstock wants to keep a 4-4-2 formation but isn’t sure that would end QPR’s mini-slump in form.
Rangers have taken only one from a possible 12 Championship points, and apart from cashing in on a rebound against Blackpool two weeks ago for a 1-1 draw, the striker has also failed to find the net in the last four games.
Blackstock and co had to endure another barren Saturday in the last outing against Birmingham - their third in a row – and the forward is praying for a turnaround in fortunes.
At St Andrews, Patrick Agyemang and he started together, but Blackstock was still left scratching his head as to why they came back from the midlands with a 1-0 defeat.
He said: “Would I prefer to hunt in a pair? Yes. Whether it’s the best formation for the team I don’t know, but any formation would be good if we were getting the results.
“It’s been a mixture of things that have gone wrong – and we’ve not been getting the rub of the green in the last two games.
“So now we have a test, and the game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday will be a hard match.”
