Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sparkles will be flying when Queens Park Rangers and Millwall square off against each other in the London derby on Saturday afternoon. The Hoops are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run in all competitions and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in the local derby. Midfielder Rayan Kolli continues to miss out with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Middlesbrough. Millwall, though, have recorded only one win in the previous five away games and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing more than one point from the Loftus Road showdown. George Saville is sidelined through suspension, while fellow midfielder Ryan Leonard misses out with a hamstring problem. Defender Brooke Norton-Cuffy is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
