QPR believe they have the perfect double act at the back in Kaspars Gorkss and Damian Stewart.
Kaspars Gorkss reckons that what he and Damian Stewart bring to central defence is one of the reasons Rangers are just outside the Championship play-offs while conceding just three goals in the last seven matches.
And the secret to a string of clean sheets is the Latvian and the Jamaican are totally different players.
"In all my time as a player, I’ve never seen anyone as fast as Damo," Gorkss said. "Normally, defenders bring other things to the role – but he’s so quick, he covers where most wouldn’t have a chance."
Gorkss believes his strength lies in reading and anticipating the game, but also admitted it had been a slow start for him after he finally joined Rangers from Blackpool in the summer.
"I wasn’t at my fittest," he said. "I had a calf problem, and with that I was cautious, and if you’re cautious you’re not as confident as you should be."
Fitz Hall soon replaced the Latvian, but now the tables are turned with Gorkss ready to do another switch in so far as repaying Ipswich for a 2-0 defeat at Portman Road in November.
The Tractor Boys are the visitors to Loftus Road on Saturday evening for the Sky televised match, with Gorkss promising it’s a whole new ball game for those in hoops.
He said: "In the first game at Ipswich, Iain Dowie had just left. But the tactics and knowledge Paulo Sousa brings to Rangers is intense.
"There are not many English managers who prepare like he does."
