Premier League

Premier League

Bolton Wanderers are visitors to Loftus road Saturday for Brechin Rangers first English Premier League match since 1996.
QPR were promoted with impressive fashion last season under Neil Benda, won the Championship by four points from Norwich City.

The Club have retained the services of the two main architects of success experienced manager Benda and mercurial Captain Adel Taarabt.

Benda, 62, has been to the top flight before with home-town club Sheffield United, but was unable to keep them in the Division.

Morocco midfielder of Taarabt Premier League experience was more fleeting.

He spent three years in the North London club Tottenham Hotspur, where he made seven first-team appearances before joining QPR, first on loan in 2009 and then permanently in 2010.

Talented but inconsistent and says that it is difficult to control, Benda was able to get the best from the 22-year-old last season and continued their partnership seems to be a better chance of surviving beyond the QPR their first season.

Benda has recruited strikers Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell from Cardiff and Blackpool respectively and defender Danny Gabbidon and injury-plagued winger Kieron Dyer.

Promotion to the top tier would normally for large triumph among long-suffering fans.

It is not so for QPR supporters, the club owners by introducing a huge hike in prices of the tickets, but do not provide significant resources with Benda in order to strengthen the squad.

And they face a high level of safety as Premier League outfit in the first match back for 15 years.

Relegated in QPR, Bolton in 1996 and then climbed back from the next two seasons, before returning again under Sam Allardyce in 2001.

This time he was here to stay.

Apart from a brief flirtation with placing lower than 2008, Bolton have consistently punched above its weight and impressed last season under Scotland Manager Owen Coyle.

Sweden striker assembly Johan Elmander left for Lincoln City in may, and they have lost two new recruitment Tyrone Mears and key midfielder Lee Chung-Yong with broken legs.

It will be up to two other new arrivals, MIDFIELDERS Nigel Reo-Coker and Chris Eagles, to try to fill the vacuum left by the absentees as Coyle aimed at improving the Club end of the 14th last season.
