Our prediction for this Championship match:
Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers take on each other at Cardiff City Stadium on day 24 on Boxing Day. The Bluebirds aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Hoops. It has to be noted, though, that Cardiff City failed to turn their dominance into victory in a 1-1 draw with Blackpool. Forward Isaak Davies is sidelined with injury for the home side.
The capital club, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Preston, and they managed to get one thanks to Jimmy Dunne’s goal. The triumph gave them a confidence boost, with the team climbing to the playoffs berth, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-six finish. Morocco midfielder Ilias Chair could be given a rest following his participation in the World Cup semis. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides will go for a win in Monday’s encounter.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Allsop):
Born in Birmingham, England on June 17, 1992, Ryan Allsop is a professional footballer who started his youth career at West Bromwich Albion. Speaking of his senior career, the 191-cm tall goalkeeper played for the likes of Hottur, Leyton Orient, Bournemouth, Coventry City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Lincoln City before signing a permanent deal with Wycombe Wanderers.
The goalkeeper, who spent the 2015/2016 season on loan at Wycombe, returned to the club after he was released by the Cherries. Ryan Allsop has 5 caps with the England U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team.
His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Wycombe which should expire on June 30, 2021. The English shot-stopper did well to keep 10 clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Wanderers in the 2018/2019 League One season.
Highlighted Team (QPR):
Queens Park Rangers are well known as QPR. The capital club was founded in 1886 and Loftus Road Stadium is QPR’s ground. Loftus Road Stadium was opened in 1904 and the capacity of the venue 18,439. However, it has to be noted that no less than 35,353 spectators watched the game between QPR and Leeds on 27 April, 1974.
The Hoops finished the 1975/1976 First Division campaign in second position in the standings, just behind champions Liverpool. This is considered the club’s biggest success, but Queens Park Rangers made it to the FA Cup final in 1982 as well.
QPR were beaten by fellow capital club Tottenham Hotspur in the title game, but they did well to lift the League Cup trophy in 1967. Queens Park’s main rivals are Brentford, Chelsea and Fulham, but other clubs based in London are considered QPR’s rivals as well. The colour of QPR’s shirts is blue and white.
