Our football match prediction:
Queens Park Rangers desperately needed a win against Wolverhampton and they managed to get one. The capital club put an end to their six-game losing run in the Championship, but they are only five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Monday’s football match against Ipswich Town. The Hoops will be looking to build on the 2-1 win over the Wolves when they welcome the Tractor Boys at their Loftus Road Stadium and it remains to be seen if Ian Holloway’s men are capable of recording their fourth win of the season. Ipswich Town have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a Boxing Day defeat to Fulham, the Tractor Boys defeated Bristol City in their last game in 2016 and that certainly helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. However, considering that QPR want this win more, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Monday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Nedum Onuoha):
Nedum Onuoha was born in Warri, Nigeria on 12 November, 1986, but he was brought up in Manchester. He attended Xaverian College Manchester and he was a very good student. He was an outstanding junior sprinter as well and it has to be noted that he won the silver medal at the English School’s Athletics Association Junior 100 metres contest. Speaking of his football career, he began playing at Manchester City at age 18, scoring three goals in 95 league appearances for the Citizens. He spent the 2010/2011 season on loan at Sunderland and in 2012 he signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Queens Park Rangers. Despite the fact that he was born in Nigeria, Onuoha was eligible to play for England and you should know that he has 20 caps for England U21 team. However, he was never given a senior England debut despite being really close on several occasions. Onuoha won the Championship play-offs with Queens Park Rangers in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Ipswich Town):
Ipswich Town are an English football club that was formed in 1878. Portman Road has been the home ground of Ipswich Town since 1894 and the capacity of the venue, which was expanded in 2002, is 30,311. The Tractor Boys compete in the Championship, but they used to play in the English Premier League in the past as well. Ipswich Town last appeared in the elite division in the 2001/2002 season. Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final. It has to be noted that the Tractor Boys have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the European competitions. Norwich City are regarded as Ipswich Town’s bitterest rivals and it is well known that the two sides take on each other in the East Anglian derby.
