Our football match prediction:
Queens Park Rangers have been in a thrilling form of late. The Hoops did well to beat Wolverhampton on Matchday 14 and, to make things even better for the fans they outplayed yet another contenders for automatic promotion Sheffield United at the weekend. Ian Holloway’s men have been impressive at their Loftus Road Stadium this season, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired. QPR have yet to record a win on the road this term and that is the main reason why away win should not be considered. The Reds, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Reading and it has to be noted that they are after their third straight win at their City Ground. Seeing that two teams are level on points in the Championship standings, a close encounter is on the horizon and we predict that two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 16.

Highlighted Team (Queens Park Rangers):
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.
