Our match prediction:
Loftus Road Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Queens Park Rangers and Birmingham City. The Hoops have been totally out of form of late, with the team conceding no less than eight goals in defeats to the likes of Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town. QPR are five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Birmingham City and, no doubt, the capital club will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s match. The Blues, on the other hand, defeated Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and they are sitting in the play-offs berth at the moment. Birmingham City have been in a much better form of late than their next rivals and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up at least one point from the Loftus Road Stadium clash. In their last meeting in London QPR emerged triumphant, but the two teams should share the spoils this time out.
