Queens Park Rangers star Jake Bidwell admits he isn't expecting a huge welcome from Brentford fans on Saturday, having moved to the "next door neighbours" last summer.

The left-back has enjoyed a steady first season at Loftus Road after leaving the Bees.

Bidwell, expected to start on Saturday, will be looking to help QPR end a run of game defeats on the bounce.

And even though he keeps in touch with some of his old team-mates, he'll be looking to conduct his business on the pitch and help the Hoops claim three points.

QPR are still not safe from the drop, and one more win in their final three games will see them over the line.

"I still speak to some of the boys there, so I'll see a few faces this weekend," Bidwell said.

"I had a good few years there, but on the day it will be business as usual.

"I have always said Brentford were good for me and I'd like to think I was good for them.

"But you move to the next door neighbours and you expect the worst, but anything more in terms of a reception is a bonus.

"I am not sure if it will be a great reception but it comes with the territory."
