Our prediction for this Championship match:
Monday’s football game between Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield United will bring down the curtain on day 26 of the new Championship campaign. The Hoops aim to make amends for a heavy loss to Luton Town, but they face yet another difficult task against the Blades. Chris Willock is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while there are no fresh selection worries in the home team. The visitors, on the other hand, are on the right track to return to the Premier League, but boss Paul Heckingbottom must warn his men against complacency.
Sheffield United are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, and seeing that QPR struggled at the back against the Hatters, we predict that the Blades are going to emerge triumphant in Monday’s showdown. The likes of Brewster, Coulibaly, Fleck, Norrington-Davies, and O’Connell should miss out with injuries for the away team.
