Our prediction for this Championship match:
Struggling Queens Park Rangers will look to record their first league win since September 2, 2023 when they take on Bristol City on Matchday 16. The Hoops have been totally out of form of late, but there were some positivities in their game in a 1-1 draw with Rotherham United. Both Jake Clarke-Salter and Morgan Fox remain in the treatment room, but there are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of Saturday’s encounter.
The Robins, on the other hand, did well to beat Sheffield Wednesday thanks to Robert Dickie’s goal, with the team quickly bouncing back from back-to-back defeats to Ipswich Town and Cardiff City. Bristol City aim to move closer to the playoffs berth and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we are tempted to place our bets on both teams to score. The likes of Haydon Roberts, Joe Williams, Andy King, Nakhi Wells, Rob Atkinson, and Ayman Benarous should miss out with injuries for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
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.
