Striker Martyn Waghorn is feeling upbeat heading into the Easter Monday clash against Queens Park Rangers.

The Rams head into the game against the R’s three points off Middlesbrough, who sit in the final play-off position, with four games left to play.

Bristol City travel to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday, whilst Boro face a trip to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest.

Both fixtures will be tough for the away sides, and with the Rams dominant at home in their last couple of games, they will be hoping to find an advantage over their play-off rivals.

Ten goals in two games at Pride Park Stadium have seen expectations rise, however, Waghorn knows QPR will pose a tough test.

“We know what this league is all about,” Waghorn told RamsTV.

“Key teams are going to pick up points against each other and the fact that we are still in it, going into a home game on Monday, it is a big opportunity again to pick up three points heading into the last busy period of the season.

“We have just got to go home and get three points. We need the fans, it is a big game and it is important.

“We know QPR are quite similar in terms of solid shape, they are set up very well and get the ball forward and cause problems in behind.

“It might be difficult and a bit frustrating, probably, but I think the way we are playing, we are confident, we are hungry and with the fans behind us at home we can really set our marker down.”
