Should Billy make space on the sideboard?

The Reds are not in action now until Sunday 1 November meaning their October form reads WWWD, a haul of 10 points from a possible 12.

That record is mirrored by weekend opponents Cardiff City although the Bluebirds have also managed two four-goal hauls away from home during the month.

QPR are the division's other form side at present although October began for them with a defeat at Swansea City. They have an extra game to impress the judges however, hosting Leicester City on Friday night.
