Sunderland manager Simon Grayson says he doesn't quite know what to expect as he prepares to welcome Ian Holloway's QPR team to the north-east.

The Black Cats have struggled to establish themselves in the Championship, and Grayson says it's about time his side started making home advantage count.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, he said: "It’s going to be a tough game, obviously we know what Ian Holloway is like he’ll be kicking every ball on the touchline, he’ll have his team fired up.

"Over the last few weeks he’s played a few different systems so we don’t really know what to expect from them but we know they’ll be a team that are hungry and desperate to do well.

"But we’re prepared and it’s going to be about what we do on Saturday, we’ve got three home games in this month, we need to be positive in our approach and get victories in to give our supporters something to cheer about."
