Bolton manager Phil Parkinson says he's hoping the home crowd can guide them to a second-straight victory in the league when they face QPR on Saturday.

The Trotters recorded their first victory of the season with a 2-1 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday last week, and the boss says that he expects QPR to pose a similar challenge.

Speaking to iFollow BWFC, he said: "There's nothing better for a player, manager or team than playing at home, so we're looking forward to that at the weekend.

"After the victory over Sheffield Wednesday the intensity levels have gone up again in training, and everyone is determined to carry on where we left off last week.

Why it's crucial that QPR bounce back from Sunderland disappointment against Bolton

"We'll focus purely on this game. QPR put in an excellent performance at Sunderland, I watched the game and they were very unlucky not to get all threee points. We know what to expect; a team of similar, if not better standards than Sheffield Wednesday."

The Hoops have struggled of late and are on a run of six games without a victory, but Parkinson says performances haven't matched results for the west London side.

He said: "I've only watched the last couple of games and they look to have a decent squad and a good midfield.

"Sunderland, they should have won, the Fulham game was a very good game to watch, an end to end local derby and i'm sure Ian (Holloway) is disappointed they're not further up the league, but like most teams at this level they have a big squad have selection problems for Ian to choose from."

After silencing over 4000 Owls fans last week, Parkinson said he is hoping the home fans can guide the team to victory again this week saying: "I don't expect QPR to bring quite as many so our supporters have got to generate that atmosphere.

"We expect the lads to lift the supporters but we want teams to come the Macron and find it a very difficult place to visit."
