Our football match prediction:
Queens Park Rangers and Burton Albion face each other at Loftus Road Stadium on day 9 of the new Championship campaign. The Hoops sit in the top half of the standings, but they head into Saturday’s football match following a 3-2 loss to Middlesbrough. QPR obviously struggle on the travels, but the capital club are tough to beat at home and they are widely expected to grab something from the Burton Albion game. You should bear in mind that the Hoops are eyeing their fourth home win of the season after they defeated the likes of Reading, Hull City and Ipswich Town at their Loftus Road Stadium earlier in the process. Burton Albion, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 victory over Fulham at the weekend, but seeing that their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired, we predict that Queens Park Rangers are going to give fans some cheer this weekend.
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 (Burton Albion):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034. Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield. Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
