qpr sheffield wednesday 600x450 Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday, Championship Opening Day: Open Thread

Queens Park Rangers against Sheffield Wednesday kicks off at 10am ET today, live on beIN SPORT for viewers in the United States.

On this, the opening day of the Skybet Championship, the Championship season celebrates it’s 125th year anniversary. And it gives us an opportunity to see how former Premier League side QPR does under manager Harry Redknapp under a Sheffield Wednesday side who finished in 18th position in the Championship last season.

Starting lineups:

QPR: Green, Simpson, Hill, Onuoha, Traore, Barton, Faurlin, Henry, Hoilett, Zamora and Johnson.

Sheffield Wednesday: Kirkland, Gardner, Zayatte, Antonio, Johnson, Prutton, Coke, Helan, Mattock, Palmer and Nuhiu.

No Loic Remy playing today, while Joey Barton makes his return to QPR’s midfield. QPR manager Harry Redknapp, meanwhile, is on crutches after having a leg injury.
