Our prediction for this Championship match:
Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Queens Park Rangers and Peterborough United. The Hoops have been having their ups and downs of late, but despite suffering a 3-1 loss to Nottingham on Wednesday, the capital club remained in the playoffs berth. Queens Park are desperate to secure a top-six finish, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways.
Midfielder Chris Willock, who limped off with injury in the City Ground defeat, is unlikely to feature against the rock-bottom side. The Posh, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, and, as a result, they will almost certainly compete in the League One next term. Given the importance of Sunday’s clash for QPR, we predict that the relegation-threatened visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Dan Butler remains on the sidelines with injury for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Andre Gray):
Wolverhampton-born striker Andre Gray is a product of the Shrewsberry Town youth academy who hit the limelight during his two loan spell with Luton Town. A no-nonsense forward endured a difficult childhood which left him with a four-inch scar on his left cheek after he got stabbed in the face in a gang-related incident back in 2011.
Fortunately, Andre Grey was pulled out of the gang lifestyle by his mother and close friends and focused on his football career. Having scored 57 goals in 111 appearances with The Hatters, Gray was prized away by Brentford in a club-record deal at the time. Just a season later Gray moved to Burnley where he hit 23 goals in 41 Championship appearances to emerge as a vital cog in his club’s Premier League push in 2014/15. After nine goals in 32 top-flight appearances with he Clarets, Gray was transferred to Watford for yet another club-record fee.
The Englishman’s prolific goalscoring record in the Football League was brought to a halt, however, with Gray scoring just five goals in 31 Premier League appearances during the 2017/18 season.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
