Our prediction for this Championship match:
QPR and Blackburn Rovers face each other at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in the Championship round 28. The Hoops want to build on a 2-1 win over Watford, with the team aiming to keep their playoffs hopes alive. The capital club have been in a fine form in 2021, but the game against Blackburn will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Anyhow, we predict that the in-form hosts are going to find the net in Saturday’s football match.
The Riversiders proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Middlesbrough and Luton Town, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Amos, Carroll, Owens, and de Wijs are sidelined with injuries for the hosts, while Ayala, Johnson, Rankin-Costello, and Wharton are unlikely to feature for the visitors.

Tom Carroll is a professional English footballer who plays for Swansea City as a midfielder. The 177-cm tall is a product of Tottenham football academy and it has to be noted that he made 27 appearances for Spurs at senior level, scoring one goal.
