Ian Holloway has said it's "impossible" to predict who is the favourite to win promotion from the Championship this season.
Speaking to the club's official website, the QPR boss said that in addition to Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Hull, a number of other clubs have the potential to put a challenge together.
He said: "It’s impossible to say who the favourites are for promotion in this division.
"Look at how Cardiff, Wolves and Ipswich have started – would many people have had them as favourites? Probably not.
“Look at the quality that’s come down, and the quality that has come up as well – it makes for a very tough Championship.”
