Massimo Luongo says that QPR must be wary of Sheffield United this evening, saying that he's expecting the Hoops to meet their match.
The Blades sit top of the Championship after an outstanding start to the season, but the Australian international says there's not too many differences between the two teams.
Asked by GetWestLondon whether they need to be wary of the Blades, Luongo said: "I think so.
"We played Wolves and they spent all of this money on individual players and they looked good and they’re easier to analyse so it’s easier to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses.
"But I’ve watched a few Sheffield games and they’re not too far off how we play; they’re aggressive they work hard and are all well-drilled. They’re an attacking side so it’s a bit unpredictable.
"We may have to change a few things tactically to suit them but we don’t know what to expect.
"We’re an aggressive side and we’re quite an attacking side so I don’t know if it might be a conflicting game where we are trying to do the same thing. Honestly, I think it’ll be a good game.
"It’ll be a tough game but we don’t have to stray too far from what we do best because we’ve been doing it so well against all types of opposition, I think it’s important for us to keep going."
Not many people expected Sheffield United to fighting for promotion this term, but the job Chris Wilder has done has been fantastic in helping his squad to adjust to the strains of the Championship, and Luongo says it would only take a couple of results to propel QPR into the upper reaches of the table.
Speaking of the Blades he said: "They’re flying at the moment and they have been the underdog, but to be fair they’ve played a lot of games on TV and people have watched them so they’re losing that reputation.
"Huddersfield had it for the whole season last year and they sneaked into the play-offs which was a real surprise. No-one realised just how good they were, but people are realising how good Sheffield United can be.
"We’re not taking them lightly. We’re not thinking a few results and a bit of luck has got them to where they are because we know they’re a good side, and what they’ve done is effective, but with the right results, a few draws turned into wins we would be right up there as well, and that’s the beauty of the Championship.
"It’s still early days. At Christmas the table starts to spread out a bit and you can see where teams are and what type of opposition you’ve got, but at the moment teams are still trying to figure out who they are Sheffield United are getting an identity, so fair play to them, but we’ve done our homework and hopefully can stop them."
