Our prediction for this Championship match:
QPR and Wycombe Wanderers square off against each other at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Hoops failed to win the previous nine games in the Championship, with the team suffering elimination to Fulham in the FA Cup at the weekend. The capital club need some boost to get back on course, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways.
After resting several first-team regulars in the FA Cup defeat, QPR boss Mark Warburton is going to field the best possible side against Wycombe. The Chairboys, on the other hand, produced a brilliant display in the FA Cup triumph (4-1) over Preston. Wycombe are tough to beat at home, but given their anything but good away record in the Championship, we are tempted to put our money on the Hoops this time out.
Highlighted Player (Tom Carroll):
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. He found the net in a 3-0 win over Norwich City in the 2015/2016 season.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Leyton Orient, Derby County and Queens Park Rangers, Tom Carroll signed a permanent deal with the Swans in the winter of 2017. Tom Carroll has 17 caps for England U21 team, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team.
His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both left and right midfielder as well. Tom Carroll’s preferred foot is left and his contract with the Welsh outfit should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
