Rangers manager Mark Warburton will be encouraged by his team's performance away to Bournemouth on Saturday and will hope to take that momentum into Wednesday night's clash with Preston.
It was QPR's third draw in as many games, but the Hoops will feel they had more than enough chances to take all three points, if not for an outstanding Asmir Begovic.
QPR now have back-to-back home games to try and claim their first win since the opening day of the season, when they dismissed a struggling Nottingham Forest side.
The R's came out on top in the last meeting between these two sides but did suffer a hefty 4-1 defeat at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium last January which will be fresh in the fans' memories.
It may be a relief to Alex Neil that his Preston side are back on the road having endured woeful form at home this season, including three 1-0 defeats.
In fact, Neil's side have won just once in nine Deepdale league games stretching back to February and are without a Championship point, or a goal, at home this season.
Their away form, however, has produced all four of this season's points with a hard-fought draw away to Norwich City and then a Scott Sinclair-inspired 4-2 win away at Brentford.
In contrast to QPR, Preston now have two consecutive away games to try and muster some points and steer them away from what will naturally be a season-long dogfight at the bottom of the table.

Tom Barkhuizen is likely to be recalled to Preston's starting lineup after having to settle for a place on the bench last time out.
Neil may look to reshuffle his front line further with the likes of Jayden Stockley in contention having shown sparks of positivity on Sunday.
Recent signing Emil Riis Jakobsen could also be given his first away start as he looks increasingly settled in the Preston side.
QPR will likely keep to the same starting lineup that impressed at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday. Still, Lyndon Dykes could return to the side having recovered from a busy international period.
Albert Adomah looked sharp having come off the bench against Bournemouth and could also be given the nod.
Queens Park Rangers possible starting lineup:
Dieng; Kakay, Dickie, Barbet, Wallace; Amos, Cameron; Osayi-Samuel, Chair, Willock, Bonne
Preston North End possible starting lineup:
Rudd; Rafferty, Bauer, Davies, Hughes; Pearson, Ledson; Potts, Browne, Sinclair; Barkhuizen
We say: Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Preston North End
Both teams will see this fixture as an opportunity to bag all three points and we expect it to be a closely contested matchup. Rangers' attacking options may be the deciding factor and could be too much for Preston on the night. With that in mind, we expect to see a narrow win for the home team.
